The CGIAR Excellence in Breeding Platform will be sponsoring short-term sabbaticals (approximately 1 to 2 months) in 2019 for members of the EiB Bioinformatics, biometrics and data management communities of practice.
The sabbaticals are intended to provide opportunities for scientists to develop critical new skills and expand collaborations across CGIAR Centers.
Proposed sabbaticals will be evaluated on the following criteria:
- Skills acquired through the sabbatical will fill critical gaps in Bioinformatics, Biometrics, and Data Management at the scientist’s home institution.
- Potential for the sabbatical to establish long term collaborative networks between the home and host institutions.
- The feasibility of the proposed sabbatical work plan.
The proposal should provide a brief plan of work, provide a justification for the choice of host institution, and address the three criteria criteria listed above.
It is recommended that applicants contact the host institution to confirm they will have the capacity to host a sabbatical prior to submitting.
To be eligible for consideration, a one-page proposal must be sent to Excellence-in-Breeding@cgiar.org by May 17 2019. Interested candidates should download the application form below.
