We are seeking an experienced and able qualitative or mixed methods researcher with a social sciences and health background to join an exciting new international research collaboration, based within a multidisciplinary academic team in Population Health Sciences at Bristol Medical School. The UK-China AMR Hub on Strategies to Reduce the Burden on Antibiotic Resistance in China is funded by UKRI (UK) and NSFC (China) under the Newton Fund and involves a consortium of research institutions across the UK and China. The Hub, led by Professors Helen Lambert in Bristol and Bo Zheng at Peking University, is highly interdisciplinary and includes three work packages (WP), each led by a different University partner in China, as well as research capacity-building activities. The Work Packages focus on:- (WP1) developing and testing the effectiveness of an intervention to modify antibiotic prescribing among health professionals and reduce antibiotic consumption (led by Anhui Medical University); (WP2) human exposure to antibiotics from environmental and therapeutic sources and policy contexts of antibiotic usage (led by Fudan University); (WS3) identifying trends of antibiotic use and resistance in hospital settings and estimating the economic burden of ABR and cost-effectiveness of different intervention strategies in China (led by Peking University).

You will work primarily on WP1 & WP2. In WP1, this entails contributing to intervention design through semi-structured interviews and undertaking ethnographic process evaluation of the intervention in China. In WP2, you will contribute to data-gathering and policy analysis.

You will also provide training and support to China-based field researchers who will undertake much of the primary data collection, oversee data quality, and undertake qualitative data and document analysis. UK Hub partners at Bristol, Leicester, Bath, Southampton, Public Health England and North Bristol NHS Trust will contribute to the Work Packages and build research capacity through short-term training and workshops, staff exchanges and doctoral support. UK Hubs are funded for three years (2019-2022).

Contact details for informal queries: Helen Lambert, h.lambert@bristol.ac.uk, 0117 928 7238; Christie Cabral, c.cabral@bristol.ac.uk, 0117 331 4569

We appreciate and value difference, seeking to attract, develop and retain a diverse mix of talented people that will contribute to the overall success of Bristol and help maintain our position as one of the world’s leading universities.
