Job Description

Epidemiologist (Antimicrobial Resistance)

Full time/ Permanent


Institute of Environmental Science and Research Ltd (ESR)

About ESR

ESR is a Crown Research Institute, working with and for clients and stakeholders to deliver enhanced scientific research services for the economic, environmental and social wellbeing of New Zealand. ESR has approximately 400 staff with sites across New Zealand.

We are currently seeking someone with a great attitude and the skills to match to take up a permanent Epidemiologist position at a Science Leader level within our Health and Environment Group in Porirua, Wellington.

Your new role

ESR provides surveillance and intelligence services for notifiable diseases and other health threats, including Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR). The Health Intelligence Group is responsible for leading the delivery of the translation of clinical and epidemiological analyses into public health intelligence to support the health sector.

Reporting to the Team Leader, Health Intelligence, this role will lead the epidemiological and intelligence function of ESR's AMR work programme.

What you'll need to succeed

You will be an experienced epidemiologist with a strong interest in antimicrobial resistance. You will be client focused and have an agile and flexible approach to your work. Although you will be primarily working on AMR, the nature of our work means that you will also be expected to participate in outbreak responses, as appropriate. You will enjoy working as part of a team and be able to develop and maintain effective professional working relationships with internal and external stakeholders and clients.

What you'll get in return

You will be working with a dedicated and passionate team of people who take pride in the quality of their work. Your work will be varied and interesting and you will have the opportunity to contribute to the health of New Zealanders. You will have plenty of training opportunities and will be involved in responding to outbreaks, public health threats and emergencies. You will also get to be part of a very unique institution that supports the wellbeing of the community and wider New Zealand.

ESR promotes active work/life policies including family-friendly initiatives and flexible hours. You'll receive ongoing personal development, free car parking as well as access to a Southern Cross group membership scheme.
