Job description

The Rotman Institute of Philosophy is seeking a postdoctoral associate in population-level bioethics/public health ethics to work on a CIHR-funded project examining ethical issues related to research and development of novel vaccines, therapeutics, and diagnostics for COVID-19, with an eye to preparing for future infectious disease outbreaks and epidemics. The successful candidate will also have the opportunity to explore other areas of population-level bioethics/public health ethics. They will have a PhD in a relevant field (e.g., bioethics, public health, philosophy) with experience and a keen interest in examining ethical issues in public health, and specifically in pandemics. The duration of the fellowship is one year and start date may be negotiated.

The Rotman Institute Postdoctoral Fellowship provides new scholars an opportunity to pursue their work in a research intensive environment among colleagues with various philosophical interests in the sciences. Ongoing research focuses on a variety of philosophical problems arising in contemporary physics, biology, cognitive neuroscience, medical science, artificial intelligence, public health policy, and more.

Postdoctoral Associates are expected to involve themselves in our research community by participating in relevant seminar series, reading groups, and research groups. They will be given office space within the Rotman Institute, located in Western’s Interdisciplinary Research Building. Candidates must have had a doctoral degree (PhD) conferred within five years of the start of the Fellowship. All degree requirements must be completed by the starting date of the contract.
