The Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine invites applications for the postdoctoral Fellowship in Advanced Biomedical Ethics. This 2-year Fellowship seeks to train scholars and future leaders in academic biomedical ethics. Appointments will commence in Summer 2017.
Fellows will participate fully in the life of the Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy, which is among the world’s leading bioethics departments. They will have full access to the intellectual resources of the Penn community.
Fellows will receive a generous annual stipend, benefits, and funds for academic books and travel. Depending on educational needs and career goals, fellows may also receive support to pursue a Master of Bioethics (MBE) or Master of Science in Medical Ethics (MSME) degree.
Applications are invited from scholars with doctoral degrees in hand (MDs, PhDs or equivalent, JDs), or who will receive such degrees by May 2017. Doctorates may be in any relevant field, including but not limited to philosophy, political science, or any of the social sciences. Prior experience in bioethics is not required.
