Are you committed to fighting superbugs in LMICs?

Would you like to join a initiative motivated to make a positive global difference, mitigating AMR in low- and middle-income countries? The International Centre for Antimicrobial Resistance Solutions – ICARS – is expanding its team with four new positions. If you have experience in working with AMR, implementation research related to AMR or if you are an experienced strategic communicator, you might be one of our new colleagues.

ICARS

The International Centre for Antimicrobial Resistance Solutions - ICARS - is a young initiative initiated by the Danish government in 2018 with a mission to develop evidence-based solutions to mitigate antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Working in partnership with LMICs, ICARS will use intervention and implementation research to support LMICs implementing their National Action plans. ICARS is currently embedded within the Danish Ministry of Health and by the beginning of 2021, ICARS is expected to operate as an independent entity.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a new initiative in its inception.
