The postholder will be based in the BDI, reporting to the Senior Research Manager in the BDI.
The successful candidate will contribute to The Global Research on AntiMicrobial project which is a Global Burden of Disease (GBD) on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR), project which is a collaborative grant funded by the UK Department of Health, the Wellcome Trust and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The grant is in partnership with the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), University of Washington.
