The Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics is pleased to invite applications for the Hecht‐Levi Postdoctoral Fellowship Program in Bioethics. The admissions committee is seeking one to two uniquely qualified postdoctoral applicants to begin this two-year fellowship in September 2018. Applicants with at least some exposure to Bioethics during their education are encouraged to apply, though an extensive background in bioethics is not required. This admissions process is highly competitive, and only one or two applicants are accepted into the program each year.

Hecht-Levi Fellowship Program Description:
The Hecht-Levi Fellowship is a two-year program of study and experiential learning in bioethics administered by the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics. The main goal of the Fellowship is to launch the careers of the next generation of bioethics scholars, so the program offers a considerable amount of protected time for research and publication.

All Hecht-Levi Fellows participate in weekly seminars or discussions, pursue their own scholarship in bioethics, and collaborate with faculty on selected projects in bioethics. Each Fellow designs an individual program tailored to her or his particular goals, interests, and background. Fellows have access to a wide range of programs.

• Weekly seminars, presentations and discussions with leading academic and policy makers;
• Individualized research program;
• Bioethics coursework through the Berman Institutes Master in Bioethics program;
