Relaunch of Raymond F. Schinazi International Exchange Programme (SIEP): applications invited

The University of Bath is relaunching a joint partnership with Emory University in Atlanta, USA.

Since its conception in 2009, the Raymond F. Schinazi International Exchange Programme (SIEP) has supported faculty, postdoctoral and PhD exchanges between Emory University in Atlanta, USA and the University of Bath to further research and education in key areas of scientific excellence.

Professor Gary Hawley, Dean of the Faculty of Engineering & Design and Dr Tom Arnot, from the Department of Chemical Engineering, visited Emory University in May, following which the SIEP has been extended to include water research.
Applications from staff and postdoctoral students from all departments across Bath are now invited to participate in an exchange in the following areas:

Drug discovery; Genomics and proteomics; High throughput screening; Medical informatics; Molecular modelling; Technology transfer; Water policy; Water safety and Water Security

Up to $30,000 is available per exchange to cover travel and accommodation costs and research funding to support work in the host laboratory.

Professor Hawley says: “The Centre for Global Safe Water at Emory has a truly international dimension coupled with outstanding facilities which will certainly benefit researchers who wish to collaborate and spend short secondments there.”

Dr Christine Moe, Professor of Safe Water and Sanitation at Emory University says: "We are excited at the links that Professor Raymond Schinazi has facilitated between Emory and Bath in the area of global safe water and we enthusiastically look forward to working with researchers in this area".

For further information and to apply to the programme.

SIEP was created thanks to a very generous gift from Professor Raymond F. Schinazi (BSc Chemistry 1972, PhD 1976, Honorary DSc 2006) who recognised the common areas of research interest between Emory and Bath.
