International Job Shadowing Program


The Global BioImaging project entails an international job shadowing program that aims to give the opportunity to the project's stakeholders to visit imaging facilities across the globe and learn from their peers.

The program allows both the hosting facilities and their guests to exchange experiences and ideas, while working on innovative imaging technologies and the related technical aspects. It also has the added value to support networking and prepare possible future collaborations between imaging infrastructures.

The first call for the GBI international shadowing program has been successfully closed in November 2016 and 7 Imaging facility staff members within the Global BioImaging (GBI) Project Network (Euro-BioImaging, Australian National Imaging Facility, Australian Microscopy & Microanalysis Research Facility, India-BioImaging) have been selected by a panel of international external experts on the basis of their CVs and compliance between their positions and the requested job shadowing. They will receive travel grants to cover their expenses.

The second call for GBI international shadowing will be open in September 2017 but general information can already be found below, where the general guidelines for the shadowing program and the list of hosting facilities are reported.
