Head of the Global AMR R&D Hub Secretariat (f/m/d)
Deutsches Zentrum für Infektionsforschung (DZIF) e.V.
The Global AMR R&D Hub was established following a call from G20 Leaders to address challenges and improve coordination and collaboration in global AMR R&D using a One Health approach.
The Global AMR R&D Hub is a global partnership currently consisting of 17 countries, the European Commission and two philanthropic foundations and is steered by a Board of Members. Its goals are to
support global priority setting and evidence-based decision-making on allocation of resources for AMR R&D through the identification of gaps, overlaps and potential for cross-sectoral collaboration
and leveraging in AMR R&D. To achieve these, the Global AMR R&D Hub collects, analyses and presents information on AMR R&D investments, products and market interventions. As the key knowledge centre
for AMR R&D, the work of the Hub is strategically aligned into three key pillars that encompass (1) guiding and supporting evidence-based decision-making; (2) enhancing collaboration and coordination;
and (3) promoting awareness, knowledge and visibility in the field. More information is available at www.GlobalAMRHub.org.
A secretariat in Berlin started operations in September 2018. The Secretariat has built up and manages the Global AMR R&D Hub under the guidance of the Board of Members. The Secretariat currently has 5
full-time employees. The Secretariat administratively belongs to the German Center for Infection Research (DZIF). We therefore offer the exciting opportunity for a
