The successful applicant is expected to participate in project activities pertaining to the project AMR and Labour Migration Across Boundaries (AMR@LAB). This is a collaboration research project between Vallabhbhai Patel Chest Institute (VPCI), Delhi, India, Aarhus University (AU), Denmark, BP Koirala Institute of Health Sciences (BPKIHS), Nepal, South Asian University (SAU), New Delhi, India.
Ordinary infections have been projected to become the most common cause of death by 2050 due to the increase globally of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The project AMR@LAB addresses the increasing global problem of AMR with a particular focus on the vulnerable category of labour migrants working in northern India and southern Nepal. The project develops a biosocial network analysis that makes it possible to link individuals, pathogens, workplaces, medicines and service providers into a comprehensive multi-scalar analysis of the dynamics between these actors as drivers of or barriers to development and transmission of AMR. This approach creates a shared analytical platform across the disciplines of anthropology, microbiology, public health and pharmacology that otherwise tend to work independently.
