GerBI Core Facility Management Course
Core facility managers find themselves in a variety of different roles that demand a broad set of skills they traditionally haven’t been taught in their academic career. Managing budgets, marketing facility services, negotiating, dealing with hierarchy, dealing with conflicts in a team or recruiting the right people are some of the challenges people typically face in this position. GerBI has hired hfp consulting, a group who specialises in supporting scientists to improve their leadership and management skills, to develop and run an intense, interactive and highly specialised workshop that addresses these challenges. This course is meant for scientists working or planning to work in a life science Core Facility.
Application deadline is May 1, 2016. Places are allocated to eligible applicants on a “first come, first served” basis.
Participants of past courses rated their course as “excellent”, and found that it was of highest relevance to their professional development. The participants stated e.g. that the course is “essential for current and future generations of imaging facility managers” and that they liked “the exchange with people who are in a similar position”.
