UK-based questionnaire to collect information on the current funding sources for bioimage analysts.
Bioimage analysis is an emergent discipline which develops and supports image analysis applicable within the life sciences. The community's need for bioimage analysis is becoming more urgent as research moves towards becoming more automated and larger scale. Due to the grass roots nature of this discipline the funding sources and job specification are still not well defined. It is becoming clear that to retain the best talent we need to improve and develop the way in which these researchers are funded. The goal of this questionnaire is to establish how researchers are presently funded with respect to image analysis and to ascertain whether the available funding is appropriate to their needs.
