Job description

The Centre for Bioethics at The Chinese University of Hong Kong was formally established in January 2015 within the Faculty of Medicine, but with a very close affiliation with the Department of Philosophy. The Centre aims to excel in research in bioethics. It also organizes workshops and conferences on bioethics. Currently, the Centre has 2 philosophers and 1 public health scholar. Affiliated with the Centre are an Assistant Professor of Law, several senior Professors of Medicine, and the Institute of Ageing. The Centre plans to recruit an internationally renowned scholar as Chair Professor of Bioethics.

 The successful candidate will be appointed at the level of Research Assistant Professor and will be housed in the Department of Philosophy.  Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Philosophy with a specialty in Bioethics, Medical Ethics, Practical Ethics (or Applied Ethics), or Ethics. He or she is expected to do research mainly in Bioethics, but is also encouraged not to give up his/her research interests outside of Bioethics.   

The successful candidate should have several good publications in bioethics, medical ethics, practical ethics (or applied ethics), or ethics, and is expected to be an active researcher. He or she will teach approximately one course per year. There will be opportunities to collaborate in bioethical research with scholars from around the world. He/she is expected to participate in the Centre’s activities – including workshops, conferences, etc. – as well as perhaps the Centre’s collaborative effort to submit research proposals. The amount of administrative duty will be minimal.

Appointment will initially be made on contract basis for three years commencing August/ September 2017, renewable subject to mutual agreement.
