Expressions of Interest are invited for the Directorate positions of the newly formed Euro-BioImaging ERICThe OrganisationEuro-BioImaging (https://www.eurobioimaging.eu) is the European landmark research infrastructure for biological and biomedical imaging technologies as recognised by the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI). Through Euro-BioImaging, life scientists can access cutting-edge imaging instruments, expertise, training opportunities and image data services that they might not find at their home institutions or among their collaboration partners. All scientists, regardless of their affiliation, area of expertise or field of activity can benefit from these open access services, which are provided with high quality standards by leading imaging facilities across Europe. The Euro-BioImaging ERIC is structured as a distributed Hub, which consists of Finland as the statutory seat, Italy as the medical imaging coordinator (Med-Hub) and EMBL as the biological imaging coordinator and host of the data services (Bio-Hub).Euro-BioImaging was granted the legal status of an ERIC (European Research Infrastructure Consortium) on 29 Oct 2019, became fully operational in December 2019 and is currently supported by 16 members.The OpportunityThis is an exciting leadership opportunity to form the foundation senior management team as full-time employees to further build, develop and coordinate the recently established Euro-BioImaging ERIC. The mission of this new research infrastructure is to provide the European research community, collaborative partners and industry with world class imaging services that bridge biological and biomedical imaging and enable innovative and world-class research. Whatever the scale of imaging, Euro-BioImaging provides the tools and support to explore and answer research questions.The Directorate of Euro-BioImaging is composed of the Director General, the Section Director of the Med-Hub and the Section Director of the Bio-Hub. The role of the Directorate is to both provide advice to, and implement the decisions of, the Euro- BioImaging Board. In addition, the Directorate will be responsible for: the day-to-day management of the Organisation, promoting the research infrastructure nationally and internationally, ensuring the coordinated provision of access, services and training to state- of-the-art imaging technologies for all life scientists in Europe and beyond and finally, to foster liaison and cooperation across the broad bioimaging communities.Euro-BioImaging ERIC is now seeking to recruit the Directorate;Expressions of interest are therefore invited for the following roles: Director General (Statutory seat, Turku, Finland) Section Director (Med-Hub, CNR, Turin, Italy) Section Director (Bio-Hub and Data Services, EMBL, Heidelberg, Germany)
