EuBI Cross-Node Job Shadowing

EuBI Cross-Node Job Shadowing


Euro-BioImaging just launched its first Cross-Node Job Shadowing programme open to all EuBI node staff members!

The objective of this initiative is that of developing the Nodes through their staff. If you would like to learn from your colleagues at other Nodes, whether that be Scientific/Technical fields (instruments and techniques), Operations (facility management, Node administration, and soft skills) or Data (data management and analysis), this initiative is for you!

The job shadowing program is made possible through EU funding as part of the EVOLVE project.

What is Cross-Node Job Shadowing? 

It is an opportunity for you to visit another Node within Euro-BioImaging, work with them, learn from them and exchange ideas and best practices. It is open to all Euro-BioImaging Node Staff: technicians, administrative employees and Node managers are all encouraged to apply. Visits can last from a few days to a maximum of two weeks.

We highly recommend that a range of topics, rather than just one, be handled during the visit.

How to apply

The deadline for applications is Friday 14th June 2024. 

There are two ways to make your application:

  1. You know what Node you’d like to visit: please contact your host directly and begin to draw up a detailed Training Plan for host approval. Once this is done you can proceed to fill out the Application Form
  2. You know what you want training on, but not what Node you can find it in: Fill out the Call of interest for Match-making. We will put you in contact with the host, and, together with them, you can draw up the training plan. If you need match-making support, please fill out the form as soon as possible, so you have sufficient time to prepare the full application before the deadline. If you fill this in shortly before the deadline, we cannot guarantee successful match-making.

What you will need to apply

Before submitting your application, please make sure that you have the following prepared:

  1. A short Motivation Statement describing the impact that this visit will have on you and your Node.
  2. Host-validated Training Plan including:
    • Date and duration of the visit
    • A detailed plan comprising the timeline and training objectives
    • The Host-Visitor agreement signed by both parties
  3. Dissemination plan

It is important that the knowledge gained during the job shadowing does not stop with you! We would like successful applicants to share what they have learned, and this can be done in a range of ways. For example: 

  • Informal training among work colleagues
  • In-person training sessions in facility
  • Webinars across your node
  • Inter-Node online training sessions

Your Dissemination Plan must include details of how you plan to share the knowledge that you have acquired. Wider and more effective dissemination will result in a stronger application.

Reimbursement Modality

The support for job shadowing will be provided as a reimbursement to be paid upon submission of the Host-Approved Report at the end of the visit. The payment will cover travel and accommodation (reimbursement of invoices) and there will be a meal allowance. Full details will be provided upon approval of application.

Costs (transportation, accommodation and meal allowance) will be reimbursed up to a maximum of 1500 EUR.
