Harold T. Shapiro Postdoctoral Fellowship in Bioethics
University Center for Human Values

Princeton University

Princeton, NJ
The University Center for Human Values invites applications for the Harold T. Shapiro Postdoctoral Fellowship in Bioethics for a possible opening in September 2014. The Shapiro Fellowship supports outstanding scholars studying ethical issues arising from developments in medicine or the biological sciences.

The Shapiro Fellow will spend from one to three years at Princeton conducting research and teaching the equivalent of one course each year, participate in the Ira W. DeCamp Seminar in Bioethics, and be invited to participate in other Center activities.

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.
