The Cleveland Clinic invites applications for a Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Bioethics Research. This academic year Fellowship (September through June) will offer opportunities to advance one’s knowledge and skills in quantitative and qualitative research methods. The Fellow will work on his/her own independent research project, in addition to collaborating in faculty-driven research projects currently being conducted in the Department of Bioethics. Fellow will have at least 75% protected time to dedicate to his/her research activities.

In addition to empirical research activities, this fellowship offers opportunities to participate in research ethics consultations, to observe clinical ethics consultations in areas pertinent to the chosen research focus, and to pursue teaching opportunities. Regular seminars, held in conjunction with fellows in the Cleveland Fellowship in Advanced Bioethics and the Cleveland Clinic Transplant Ethics Fellowship, will explore a range of topics in Bioethics, including: neuroethics, pediatric ethics, public health ethics, reproductive ethics, end of life care ethics, the ethics of organ transplantation and other current topics in bioethics.
