Post-Doc: Ethics Fellowships at Stanford, McCoy Center for Ethics in Society

General and Interdisciplinary Ethics Fellowships

McCoy Family Center for Ethics in Society

Stanford University

Deadline: December 11, 2017

 

For 2018-19, the McCoy Family Center for Ethics in Society at Stanford seeks to appoint up to three postdoctoral fellows. Selected fellows will be designated as either General Ethics Fellows or Interdisciplinary Ethics Fellows. The two types of fellows have some distinct training opportunities and responsibilities, but they form a common community at the Center and participate together in the Center’s intellectual life. All applicants will be considered for both types of fellowships and do not need to tailor their application for one or the other fellowship.

 

General Ethics Fellowship

Some selected fellows will be part of our longstanding postdoctoral program that is open to candidates with substantial normative research in any area within philosophy or political science. For 2018-19, we are especially interested in candidates with research interests in inequality, immigration, global justice, environmental ethics, and ethics and technology, but we welcome all applicants with strong normative interests. General Ethics Fellows participate in the intellectual life of the Center for Ethics in Society (attend weekly workshops; events; professional training opportunities), teach one class per year, interact with undergraduates in the Ethics in Society Program, and contribute to an interdisciplinary ethics community across the campus.

 

Interdisciplinary Ethics Fellowship

2018-19 will be the third year of this fellowship program at the Center. The program is rooted in the Center’s commitment to bringing ethical reflection to bear on pressing social problems. Addressing many of these social problems involves knowledge of the work of social science, law, and the life sciences. The premise of this program is that the normative scholarship of our fellows will be enhanced by engagement with empirically-oriented scholars. To that end, each fellow in the program will be matched with a partner research center at Stanford that is dedicated to interdisciplinary research. For 2018-19, we are especially interested in candidates with research interests in engineering/computer science or biomedical ethics, but all applicants whose work may intersect with empirically-oriented scholarship will be considered. Applicants need not name a possible partner center on campus or tailor their materials for this type of fellowship. The Interdisciplinary Ethics Fellows and partner centers will be selected based on the natural match between their work. Fellows will participate in the regular intellectual life of the partner center and the Center for Ethics in Society (e.g., attend weekly workshops; events; professional training opportunities), interact with undergraduates in the Ethics in Society Program, and contribute to an interdisciplinary ethics community across campus.

 

Applicants for both fellowships must have normative training and hold a PhD in Philosophy or Political Science. Scholars with a PhD in Law will also be considered so long as their work focuses on ethical dimensions of public policy or law.
