Drivers for Antimicrobial Resistance in Poultry in India (DARPI) is a project aiming to apply design research and social science methods to map antimicrobial use (AMU) and the antimicrobial resistance (AMR) that is driven by inappropriate use, across the entire poultry meat supply chain from farm to table in India. The study provides a unique interdisciplinary opportunity to map AMU, to understand entry points for development of AMR and the contribution by inappropriate AMU in poultry, and suggest co-design solutions to address the huge AMR burden in India.


The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will support the Principal Investigator (PI) and the Co-Investigator (CI) in the fulfilment of DARPI project deliverables and to independently research, collate and document key aspects of the project and facilitate its effective and efficient delivery. Key responsibilities will include:


  • Working with the project team to guide and undertake design ethnographic work including mapping and visualising.
  • Working with team members in the delivery of field work methods and practices
  • Undertaking relevant literature review in relation to research into antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in poultry farming contexts particularly with reference to infection practices and control in India
  • Creating visual templates and prompts for workshop activities
  • Contributing to the development and delivery of co-design workshop activities
  • Contributing to the analysis of the challenges, strength and added value of deploying particular design and participatory approaches
  • Contributing to the synthesis of the qualitative research data especially around the implementation of co-designed prompts / touch-points
