The Euro-BioImaging Bio-Hub (hosted by EMBL Heidelberg) is seeking for a highly motivated imaging scientist to support the operation of the European research infrastructure Euro-BioImaging ERIC (www.eurobioimaging.eu) regarding support and consultation for researchers in accessing Euro-BioImaging services, engagement with service providers across Europe and coordination of facility staff training program.
Euro-BioImaging offers life scientists open access to imaging instruments, expertise, training opportunities, and data management services. All scientists, regardless of affiliation, area of expertise, or field of activity, are invited to apply for access and can benefit. State-of-the-art imaging services are offered through the 35 internationally renowned Euro-BioImaging Nodes representing 173 individual imaging facilities across Europe. Euro-BioImaging ERIC is a landmark on the ESFRI roadmap since 2018, and governed by its 16 Member States and EMBL. Euro-BioImaging legally is set-up as an ERIC (European Research Infrastructure Consortium). The management entity of Euro-BioImaging, the so-called Hub, is distributed across three sites: the legal seat is based in Finland, the Med-Hub in Italy, and the Bio-Hub is hosted by EMBL in Heidelberg, Germany. This post is for the Bio-Hub at EMBL.
The European Commission recently granted the new EVOLVE project to Euro-BioImaging, to significantly strengthen the ERIC; to reach its next level as a pan-European organization; and to address the needs and expectations of its continuously expanding communities of users, service providers, partners, ERIC members, industry and other relevant stakeholders. The EVOLVE project fosters the family of Euro-BioImaging Nodes and Hub at the personal, institutional, national and European level.
The Scientific Project Manager for User Management and Staff Training will develop and manage the following tasks in close collaboration with the Bio-Hub team as well as the Hub-teams in Finland and Italy:
- Manage user access to Euro-BioImaging services, including consultation for researchers in the selection of suitable imaging technology and host facility for their research project, as well as managing the scientific and technical review process
- Assess the technical, hard skills and soft skills training needs of the Euro-BioImaging Nodes’ staff and collaboratively develop and implement a training program to address these needs in EVOLVE;
- Support skill-building at the Euro-BioImaging Nodes to improve Node efficiency and Euro-BioImaging service delivery;
- Increasing visibility and uptake of training activities for end users organized by Euro-BioImaging Nodes;
- Strengthening national imaging communities and the close connection of the Nodes with their communities;
- Supporting the Bio-Hub in linking Euro-BioImaging to relevant external scientific communities and bio-imaging initiatives, and representing Euro-BioImaging ERIC in relevant international scientific events for promoting access and services.
The successful applicant will be integrated into the international Euro-BioImaging Bio-Hub team located at EMBL Heidelberg, working closely together with colleagues that are professionals in the fields of imaging technologies, project management, communication & outreach, image data analysis and science policy.
Closing date: 8 December 2023
