Job description

The Institute for Practical Ethics at the University of California, San Diego, invites applications for the position of postdoctoral scholar for the academic years 2018-2019 and 2019-2020. Applicants must possess a PhD granted from an accredited university before the position begins.

The postdoctoral scholar positions are two-year appointments, with the second year contingent upon acceptable performance in the first year. Salary, as based on UC’s salary scales and candidate qualifications, will be provided in exchange for active participation in the Institute’s program of activities and in particular its research project in Ethical Issues in Active Genetics. Postdoctoral scholars will be expected to lead monthly meetings on active genetics and ethics, attend a monthly meeting on scientific issues within active genetics, explore the Indian context, and assist with project activities (which may include writing grant proposals, organizing workshops, and research in the area). Duties will be decided through consultation between the fellow and Institute Co-Directors. Postdoctoral scholars are required to be in residence for the entirety of the academic years. The postdoctoral position is open to international applicants. The Institute is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through research and service.
