The National Institute for Public Health and the Environment

The World Health Organization Collaborating Centre for Antimicrobial Resistance Epidemiology and Surveillance is looking for an enthusiastic senior (medical) epidemiologist to strengthen the team that provides technical support and capacity building to national Antimicrobial Resistance programs in Central Asian and Eastern European countries.

You will initiate and coordinate Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) surveillance demonstration projects, develop guidance materials on quality control, analysis and interpretation of AMR surveillance data. You will also organise and facilitate national and multi-country workshops, and provide on-site technical support to national AMR surveillance networks.

An important part of your work will be for the regional AMR surveillance network CAESAR (the Central Asian and Eastern European Surveillance of Antimicrobial Resistance). CAESAR is a collaboration between the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM), the European Society for Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases, the WHO regional office for Europe and the participating countries.

  • You have proven experience conducting infectious disease surveillance and/or epidemiologic research, demonstrated by international publications.
  • You have strong organisational skills and experience coordinating projects.
  • You have experience facilitating workshops and teaching epidemiological concepts.
  • You are a team player, but like to take initiative and are able to work independently.
  • You have strong intercultural skills, and are good at connecting with people from different cultural and educational backgrounds, if needed through translators.
  • You are flexible and creative and look for opportunities and solutions in the context of limited resources and knowledge gaps. 
  • You are willing and able to travel on a regular basis.
Overige arbeidsvoorwaarden

In addition to the salary and holiday pay, you can expect to receive an end-of-year payment, the so-called ‘13th month’. The national government strongly adheres to personal growth and career development and offers several opportunities to facilitate this. The terms of employment include, amongst other things, a maximum of 55% paid parental leave (conditions apply), facilities to study, an additional leave plan for older employees and reimbursement of commuting costs. Moreover, the national government also offers a range of options to shape your total employment package based on individual choice.

Please send your application to dr. Tjalling Leenstra.

De organisatie - The National Institute for Public Health and the Environment

The Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) protects and promotes public health and consumer safety, and we help to protect the quality of the environment. We’ve done so for more than a hundred years and RIVM has become a knowledge institute that is at the heart of society. RIVM carries out independent research and provides the government with trusted policy advice regarding health and the environment. We deal with issues concerning infectious diseases, vaccinations, population studies, lifestyle, nutrition, drugs, the environment, sustainability and safety. We do this through research, advice, direction or implementation. RIVM annually produces and publishes numerous reports. RIVM has a total of approximately 1.800 staff.

De afdeling - The Centre for Infectious Diseases, Epidemiology and Surveillance

The Centre for Infectious Diseases, Epidemiology and Surveillance (EPI) at the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) analyses and monitors the occurrence and trends in infectious diseases in the Netherlands and carries out studies on the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of measures to control such diseases. We collect local, regional and national data on infectious diseases, analyse and interpret these data and report the results in support of infectious disease control practice.

In close collaboration with other departments of the Centre for Infectious Disease Control (CIb) we conduct surveillance to evaluate the national vaccination program, STI (sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV), healthcare-associated infections and antimicrobial resistance, food and water-related infections and respiratory infections. Based on the analysis of surveillance data and our specialist knowledge, we initiate epidemiological studies and develop mathematical models to understand (determinants of) transmission and to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions. This is done to support infectious disease control policy development.

Besides working on national infectious disease surveillance, EPI also works in an international context. EPI actively contributes to the surveillance programs of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) and the World Health Organisation (WHO). Since 2014 EPI hosts the WHO Collaborating Centre for Antimicrobial Resistance Epidemiology and Surveillance (WHO-CC AMR). The Collaborating Centre supports the WHO with the implementation of the Global Action Plan on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) by providing technical advice on surveillance methodology and technical support to member states towards strengthening of national AMR surveillance capacity. AMR surveillance is a necessary ingredient in the national strategies to control AMR, that are currently being developed as it provides the necessary insight into the current AMR situation required for an effective and targeted approach to control AMR.

Functiegroep

Deze vacature valt in de functiegroep Wetenschappelijk Medewerker. Binnen het Functiegebouw Rijk staat deze functiegroep omschreven als: uitvoeren en inhoudelijk verantwoordelijk zijn voor (complexere) wetenschappelijke onderzoeken.

Wil je meer over de functiegroep Wetenschappelijk Medewerker en de betreffende doorgroeimogelijkheden te weten komen, ga dan naar het .

Om functies van medewerkers te beschrijven, werkt het Rijk met functiegroepen. Bijvoorbeeld de functiegroep beleidsmedewerker. Voorheen hadden ministeries en grote diensten, zoals de Belastingdienst en Rijkswaterstaat, hun eigen functiebeschrijvingen. Hierdoor waren functies moeilijk vergelijkbaar en hadden medewerkers weinig inzicht in welk soortgelijk werk binnen het Rijk aanwezig is en wat alternatieve loopbaanmogelijkheden zijn.

De ruim 30.000 functiebeschrijvingen zijn nu ingewisseld voor slechts 52 functiegroepen. Er is één gemeenschappelijk taal ontstaan waardoor vergelijkbaarheid tussen functies nu wel mogelijk is en de verschillende loopbaanmogelijkheden binnen het Rijk zichtbaar worden. Met de nieuwe resultaat- en ontwikkelgerichte functieprofielen worden medewerkers en leidinggevenden geholpen bij het maken van concrete werk- en ontwikkelafspraken.

De 52 functieprofielen staan beschreven in de website Functiegebouw Rijk. De website laat ook passende vacatures zien en de stappen die medewerkers in hun loopbaan kunnen maken.

Heb je een vraag of een suggestie om WerkenvoorNederland te verbeteren, neem dan met ons op.
