Job shadowing is a "on-the-job" learning opportunity. Job shadowing program is open to the staff of imaging core facilities that offer biological imaging or biomedical imaging and also to those who wish to pursue career in imaging core facilities.
Essentially, imaging facility shadowing involves working with another experienced member of staff in a different facility who might have longer experience, provide open user access, operate a different set of imaging technologies, and so on. This experience helps the participants of the program to learn new aspects related to user access, quality management, software tools, image data storage and analysis, facility organization or the latest technologies in the field.
The program allows both the hosting facilities and their guests to exchange experiences and ideas. It also has the added value to support networking and prepare possible future collaborations between imaging facilities and infrastructures.
Global BioImaging has organised three rounds of job shadowing in 2016, 2017 and 2018 and is now opening a continuous program that allows anyone interested to experience life in a peer imaging facility, to travel internationally and learn from others.
General guidelines of the program can be downloaded from the attachments section on the side. They describe the general features of the international job shadowing program and provide some practical information on the procedure to be followed by both the hosting facilities and the job shadowing guests.
The facilities adhering to the Global BioImaging Job Shadowing are listed in the table below and cover both biological imaging and biomedical imaging. The applications to the international job shadowing program can be submitted by clicking on this link.
