Research Fellow (2 years, Full-Time) (EXPIRED)
Centre for Biomedical Ethics, National University of Singapore
|Job category||Postdoc or similar / Fixed term|
|AOS||Biomedical Ethics and Applied Ethics|
We are looking to appoint a full-time Research Fellow at the Centre for Biomedical Ethics (CBmE), Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore (NUS). The successful candidate will contribute to the project “New insights into the theory and practice of research ethics,” working under the project’s Principal Investigator, Assistant Professor G. Owen Schaefer.
This project is aimed at identifying key theoretical gaps in the literature on human subjects research, and conducting rigorous analysis not only to fill those gaps but also to explore reforms in the conduct and oversight of research. Illustrative examples include: articulating an account of ‘public interest’ that can apply to and justify certain types of research; assessing whether and the extent to which individuals have a moral right to control and withdraw data about them used in research; assessing whether expanding research recruitment is an appropriate means to secure patient access to scarce treatments; exploring whether and to what extent national partiality and priority have a justifiable role in international research; and applying the concept of privilege (as contrasted, perhaps, with vulnerability) to the context of research regulation and oversight. Those are indicative examples only, however; the precise topics within this remit have not been pre-determined, and part of the successful candidate’s duties will be to work with the PI to identify what areas will be most fruitful to investigate further.
The NUS Centre for Biomedical Ethics (CBmE) was established in September 2006 in the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine through a generous gift by the Chen Su Lan Trust. We work to develop understanding, capacity for good judgement, and sound ethical practice in the context of healthcare provision, biomedical science and health-related policy development. CBmE is a thriving centre for learning, teaching and research relating to ethical and legal aspects of healthcare and biomedical sciences. We study issues of broad international significance with a particular interest in learning for and from Singapore and Asia and work collaboratively with academic colleagues across and beyond NUS, and with key stakeholders in the healthcare sector and biomedical science and policy communities.
