The recruited person will continue the work begun by his/her predecessor on the GARE research project (Governing antimicrobial resistance in livestock farming: actors, knowledge and regulations of an international public problem (1945-2019)), funded by DIM One Health. In direct collaboration with Frédéric Vagneron (SAGE, University of Strasbourg) and more broadly with the AMAGRI collective (https://www.amagri.eu) coordinated by Nicolas Fortané (IRISSO, INRAE, University of Paris-Dauphine), the post-doctoral fellow will conduct research on controversies related to the establishment of standards to regulate the use of antibiotics in veterinary medicine in international organisations since the 1990s.


The recruited person (contract of 14 months) will be in charge of identifying the spatio-temporal frameworks of one or two controversies related to the problem of antimicrobial resistance in livestock in international organizations in charge of health and agriculture (e.g. growth promoters, antibiotic residues in food or the environment, critically important antibiotics, surveillance and monitoring of resistant bacteria, etc.) and to carry out an analysis according to the theoretical and methodological approaches of the sociology and/or the history of science and medicine.
It is expected that the results of this research will be disseminated in international conferences and publications, and that the post-doctoral fellow will participate in the activities of the AMAGRI collective.


- PhD thesis in sociology or history of science and medicine
- Expertise in the field of the environment is particularly desired in order to understand this little-studied facet of the problem of antimicrobial resistance.
- Mastering of qualitative analysis methods in a socio-historical perspective (archives and documentary analysis, interviews)
-Fluency in English for data collection (interviews), communications and publications.
- Ability to work in a collaborative environment.
- Autonomy

Work Context

The post-doctoral fellow will carry out his/her work at the Centre Alexandre Koyré (CAK), UMR CNRS 8560, working under the supervision of Frédéric Vagneron, Nicolas Fortané, Delphine Berdah and Anne Rasmussen. Regular meetings with colleagues based on other sites are to be expected (physically or remotely depending on the sanitary situation). Travel for the purposes of the research (conducting interviews and consulting archives) is also to be considered.

Constraints and risks

The main risk is related to the current sanitary situation. This could lead to a high rate of home-working and make access to sources difficult. In this case, the applicant will be expected to use alternative methods (e.g. distance interviews, digital archives and documentation) so that the research can nevertheless be carried out successfully.
