Short-term Summer Fellowship for Teaching Neuroethics

Would you or a neuroscience colleague like to develop and teach a course on neuroethics at your institution? The University of Pennsylvania is ready to help, by offering Short-term Visiting Fellowships for Teaching Neuroethics.

This summer the Penn Center for Neuroscience & Society will host 16 college and university professors with primary expertise in neuroscience for a week-long intensive course on “neuroethics,” that is, the ethical, legal and societal implications of neuroscience.

Through reading, lecture and discussion, fellows will acquire a strong grasp of the core issues of neuroethics, as well discuss with experienced instructors the design of neuroethics syllabus, selection of readings and implementation of learning activities. Work space, hotel rooms, and most meals will be provided.

We invite applications from faculty members planning to teach courses, in the next two years, on “Neuroethics,” “Neuroscience and Society” or any course that includes a substantial component of these topics (e.g., neurolaw, neuroeducation, ethics for neuroscience students or other interdisciplinary neuroscience courses).

Applications are due February 15, 2013. For more details and application information, visit the fellowship page on neuroethics.upenn.edu. A flier is available for download at:  neuroethics.upenn.edu/images/stories/2013cnsfellowshipflyer.jpg
