|JOB TITLE:||2022-2024 McDonald-Agape Postdoctoral Fellowship in Bioethics|
|DEADLINE:||Monday, January 3rd, 2022|
The Kennedy Institute of Ethics at Georgetown University
Through a generous grant from the McDonald-Agape Foundation, The Kennedy Institute of Ethics is pleased to announce this call for McDonald-Agape Postdoctoral Fellowship in Bioethics. The Fellowship is designed to promote the academic career of a junior scholar with outstanding potential for scholarship and leadership in bioethics. We are inviting applications from exceptional candidates for this two-year fellowship, which will begin in July, 2022. Priority will be given to physicians, but those with other terminal degrees are also eligible. Some previous education in bioethics is required, but a formal degree in ethics is not necessary. The program is highly selective. Only one candidate will be accepted in this fellowship’s inaugural year.
The McDonald-Agape Fellowship is a two-year program of study and scholarship at Georgetown’s prestigious Kennedy Institute of Ethics. The fellow will conduct scholarly work directly with Dr. Daniel Sulmasy, the André Hellegers Professor of Biomedical Ethics and Acting Director of the Kennedy Institute of Ethics. Qualified physician fellows will have the opportunity to maintain practice skills through limited outpatient work at the MedStar-Georgetown University Hospital.
The program will be uniquely tailored to the needs, interests, and background of the successful candidate. It will include opportunities for formal study, research, participation in the life of the Kennedy Institute, and experience in clinical bioethics consultation. The proximity of the main campus and the medical center provides unique opportunities for interdisciplinary study and collaborative research. The Law Center is also accessible via Georgetown University Transportation Services.
