The Academic Fellowship is a two-year, residential postdoctoral program specifically designed to identify, cultivate, and promote promising health law policy, biotechnology, and bioethics scholars early in their careers. Fellows have been selected from among recent graduates, young academics, and mid-career practitioners who are committed to pursuing publishable research likely to make a significant contribution to the Petrie-Flom Center's focus areas. Our prior fellows are now producing top-rate scholarship at schools around the country, including Harvard, UC Berkeley, BU, UCLA, Cornell, the University of Illinois, the University of Arizona, Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, the University of New Hampshire, and the University of Cambridge.
Fellows devote their full time to scholarly activities in furtherance of their individual research agendas. In addition, fellows contribute to the intellectual life of the Center and the Harvard Law School community through mentoring students, presenting their research in and attending faculty workshops and seminars, participating in Center events, and blogging at Bill of Health.
Please note that we are not soliciting applications for the 2015-2017 fellowship term.
