Job description

The Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics is pleased to invite applications for the Hecht‐Levi Postdoctoral Fellowship Program in Bioethics. The Program is seeking a uniquely qualified postdoctoral applicant to begin this two-year fellowship in September 2022.  Although an extensive background in bioethics is not required, priority will be given to applicants with at least some exposure to bioethics during their education. The selection process is highly competitive.

Applications will be accepted October 17th, 2021 through December 19, 2021.

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 Berman Institute Fellows across the fellowship programs 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.

Hecht‐Levi Postdoctoral Fellows have access to a wide range of benefits and activities in multiple schools at Johns Hopkins, including:

  • Weekly seminars, presentations and discussions with leading academic and policy makers;
  • Individualized research program;
  • Bioethics coursework through the Berman Institute's Master in Bioethics program;
  • Postdoctoral mentoring in bioethics;
  • Professional development training;
  • Participation in the Berman Institute's outreach efforts via social media;
  • Teaching opportunities (commensurate with experience and background);
  • $62,500 per year, plus health and other benefits
  • $2,000 per year for travel/lodging and registration at relevant conferences
