Call for Applications: 2020-21 Fellows-in-Residence at the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University


The Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University announces the 2020-21 Call for Applications for the following fellowship program:


Application deadline: November 15, 2019

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.

Priority will be given to early career scholars and practitioners whose work closely aligns with our theme, the “Ethics of Technological and Biomedical Innovation,” 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 all fellows will find valuable intellectual partnerships to support and spur their work.

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 current theme, the Center is pleased to offer joint fellowship opportunities with the following Centers:

Please forward this notice to promising candidates.
