Bioethics FellowshipPosted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2019-Sep-16
The Department of Bioethics is pleased to offer a limited number of two-year post-doctoral fellowships. Fellows participate in the activities and the intellectual life of our interdisciplinary department and study ethical issues related to biomedical research, clinical practice, genetics, biotechnology, public health, and health policy. They conduct mentored theoretical and empirical research on a range of bioethical fields of interest. For a typical fellow, this research yields multiple first-authored publications in premier academic journals. In addition to research and writing, fellows participate in weekly bioethics seminars, case conferences, ethics consultations, and IRB deliberations, and have access to multiple educational opportunities at NIH. No prior bioethics experience is required or expected.
Fellowships begin in September 2020. Stipends are commensurate with NIH Intramural Research Training Award guidelines.
