The post holder will be expected to develop and deliver their own high quality and sustainable research programme in the epidemiology, mathematical modelling, pharmacology, health economics, diagnostics or microbiology of antimicrobial resistance and Infectious Diseases. We are also interested in hearing from those with backgrounds in the use of applied statistics or artifical intellegence in relation to antimicrobial resistance and infection. The post holder will have a particular remit to develop their own applied research and, where appropriate, will have opportunities to harness the rich sources of material and data available from our partners.

We are interested in applications from those who are able to demonstrate their ability to produce independent research, wish to pursue an academic career and who have an interest in applying for independent funding including career development fellowships.
