Harold T. Shapiro Postdoctoral Research Associate in Bioethics
University Center for Human Values, Princeton University
|Job category||Postdoc or similar / Fixed term|
|Location||Princeton, New Jersey, United States|
|Start date||September 1, 2024|
The Princeton University Center for Human Values invites applications for the Harold T. Shapiro Postdoctoral Fellowship in Bioethics for a possible available position starting in September 2024. The Shapiro Fellowship supports outstanding scholars studying ethical issues arising from developments in medicine, the biological sciences, or population health. We particularly encourage proposals focusing on problems of practical importance that have broader theoretical interest. The Shapiro Postdoctoral Research Associate will spend from one to three years at Princeton conducting research and teaching the equivalent of one course each year (subject to sufficient enrollments and approval by the Dean of the Faculty). They will participate in the Ira W. DeCamp Seminar in Bioethics and will be invited to participate in other activities of the University Center for Human Values including a year-long research seminar for visiting fellows and Center faculty. QUALIFICATIONS Applications welcome from candidates who have or expect to have a Ph.D., M.D., or other equivalent doctoral degree by the start, normally beginning September 1, 2024. Applicants should not have more than two years of postdoctoral experience by the date of appointment. An applicant may have a background in any area of ethical studies, not necessarily in bioethics. However, the proposed research plan should be related to the field of bioethics. Applications will be evaluated on the basis of the applicant's previous accomplishments and the promise of the proposed research project in bioethics. The capacity to contribute to the University's teaching program will also be considered. TERM OF APPOINTMENT The term of the fellowship is one year, normally beginning September 1, 2024, with the possibility of renewal for up to two additional years pending satisfactory performance. Appointment will be made to the rank of Postdoctoral Research Associate; the Shapiro Associate will also carry the title of Lecturer, if teaching. Princeton University offers competitive salary and employee benefits.
