University Center for Human Values -- Harold T. Shapiro Postdoctoral Research Associate in Bioethics

Funding Agency:
Princeton University

The Princeton University Center for Human Values invites applications for the Harold T. Shapiro Postdoctoral Fellowship in Bioethics for a possible opening in September 2020. The Shapiro Fellowship supports outstanding scholars studying ethical issues arising from developments in medicine, the biological sciences, or population health. We particularly encourage proposals focusing on problems of practical importance that have broader theoretical interest.

The Shapiro Fellow will spend from one to three years at Princeton conducting research and teaching the equivalent of one course each year (subject to sufficient enrollments and approval by the Dean of the Faculty). He or she will participate in the Ira W. DeCamp Seminar in Bioethics and will be invited to participate in other activities of the University Center for Human Values including a year-long research seminar for visiting fellows and Center faculty.

Deadline: Dec. 5, 2019

Eligibility Requirements

Applicants must have completed all the requirements for the Ph.D., M.D., or other equivalent doctoral degree by the start date, and should not have more than two years of postdoctoral experience by that date. An applicant may have a background in any area of ethical studies, not necessarily in bioethics. However, the proposed research plan should be related to the field of bioethics.

Applications will be evaluated on the basis of the applicant’s previous accomplishments and the promise of the proposed research project in bioethics. The capacity to contribute to the University’s teaching program will also be taken into account.
