Apply now - EiB sabbaticals in Bioinformatics and Data Management

Excellence in Breeding Module 5 will be sponsoring short-term sabbaticals (approximately 1 month) in 2018 for members of the 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 CG centers.

Proposed sabbaticals will be evaluated on the following criteria:

  1. Skills acquired through the sabbatical will fill critical gaps in Bioinformatics, Biometrics, and Data Management at the scientist’s home institution.
  2. Potential for the sabbatical to establish long term collaborative networks between the home and host institutions.
  3. The feasibility of the proposed sabbatical work plan.

The proposal should provide a brief plan of work, provide a justification for the choice of the 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 by May 25 2018. Interested candidates must download the application form here.
