Researcher - Water Quality Modelling (Antimicrobial Resistance)
The International Water Management Institute (IWMI) has an exciting opportunity for a Researcher who will investigate:
- the sources and loads of antimicrobial compounds (ACs), antimicrobial resistant bacteria (ARB) and antibacterial resistant genes (ARGs) to water systems connected to human, aquaculture, and agriculture activities;
- decay, dilution and transport of these compounds in water;
- the associated exposure and risk to human, aquaculture, agriculture and ecosystem health and productivity;
- and options to prevent water pollution and mitigate risks (beyond a more rational use of antibiotics), as well as their costs and effectiveness.
During the one-year assignment, the researcher will be based in Sri Lanka at IWMI headquarters, spend time as a visiting scientist at the AMR Hub hosted by ILRI in Nairobi, Kenya collaborate with WorldFish in Penang, Malaysia, and travel to workshops in low and middle income countries.
