Open Call for Fellowship Applications: Academic Year 2020 - 2021

The Institute for Medical Ethics and History of Medicine of the
Ruhr-University Bochum is now accepting fellowship applications for
2020-2021. This opportunity is for post-doctoral researchers who wish to
spend four weeks during term time in Bochum as part of the Institute’s
vibrant community of research and who seek to engage in collaborative
and interdisciplinary exploration of some of the most important and
compelling ethical issues. Applications will be accepted until Monday,
October 14th, 2019 at 11:59 p.m CET.
Open slots are available between April 6th and July 17th 2020 or between
October 12th 2020 and February 5th 2021! (Please indicate your preferred
time slot in your application!)

We are looking for talented and dedicated scholars with strong
intellectual abilities, an interest in interdisciplinary research,
flexibility, team-working skills, and a very good command of the English
language. Candidates should have successfully completed a doctoral
degree in medicine, philosophy, social sciences, psychology, or another
relevant discipline with experience in the field of medical ethics.

We invite applications from people working on a broad range of ethical
topics which may overlap with ongoing work at the Institute or may
expose our research community to new opportunities and approaches.

About the Fellowship Programme

The fellowships are awarded to post-doctoral researchers under the
Institute’s established International Visiting Fellowship Programme in
Medical Ethics. As one of the country’s leading groups in the
interdisciplinary field of medical ethics, we offer a dynamic and
vibrant research environment. Our research covers a broad range of
topics and methods, including projects with philosophical as well as
empirical social-scientific approaches. For information about previous
fellows, please visit our institute website

The duration of the fellowships is one month with the option to extend
the stay for another month. Fellows receive a monthly stipend of 1.200
EUR to cover their living expenses in Germany, depending on their
qualification. Fellowships do not provide medical insurance or other
social benefits. Social security or tax-payments are not deducted from
the stipend.

Your application should include your curriculum vitae, a short outline
(1-2 pages) of the purpose of your visit and a copy of a recent
publication or an example of relevant work. The latter should be on the
order of a paper or chapter - not an entire book or dissertation - and
should be in English. Please e-mail your application until Monday,
