Harold T. Shapiro Postdoctoral Research Associate in Bioethics
The Harold T. Shapiro Postdoctoral Research Associate position supports outstanding scholars studying ethical issues arising from developments in medicine or the biological sciences. We particularly encourage proposals focusing on problems of practical importance that have broader theoretical interest.
The Shapiro Research Associate spends from one to three years at Princeton conducting research and teaching the equivalent of one course each year. He or she participates in the Ira W. DeCamp Seminar in Bioethics and is 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.
The term of the position is one year with the possibility of extension for up to two further years. Princeton University offers competitive salary and employee benefits.
Applicants must have completed all the requirements for the Ph.D., M.D., or other equivalent doctoral degree by the start of the appointment and must not have held the degree for more than three years. 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 are 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 is also taken into account.
