Call for Applications: Harvard Center for Ethics Fellowships
November 15, 2018
The Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University announces the 2019-20 Call for Applications for our Fellows-in-Residence Program.
Application deadline: November 15, 2018
The Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University invites applications from a broad range of researchers and practitioners who will work over the course of the year on pressing issues in ethics. Faculty in arts and sciences and professional schools, postdoctoral scholars, practitioners, and researchers from industry, government, and NGOs are eligible to apply. For the 2019-20 academic year, the theme at the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics will be the Ethics of Technological and Biomedical Innovation.
Priority will be given to early career scholars and practitioners whose work closely aligns with this theme, but we reserve some “open” slots for senior scholars and practitioners, and for exceptionally competitive applicants whose work in ethics falls outside this scope. The goal will be to craft a cohort in which “thematic” fellows and “open” fellows will all find valuable intellectual partnerships to support and spur their work.
The one-year fellowship term runs the course of the academic year, typically from the beginning of September through the end of May. All Fellows-in-Residence will be expected to devote the majority of their time to their individual projects and to participate in regular work-in-progress seminars. In addition, Fellows are strongly encouraged to participate in the Center’s programming, which includes public lectures, themed seminars and reading groups, conferences, workshops, and lunch discussions.
Under our new theme, the Center is pleased to offer joint fellowship opportunities with the following Centers: the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology and Bioethics at the Harvard Law School; the Center for Bioethics at the Harvard Medical School; the Center for Research on Computation and Society at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences; and a special AI Initiative joint fellowship with the Berkman-Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University. Please note that the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics is no longer able to accept applications for Berggruen Fellowships.
