Education & Fellowship Opportunities: How to Apply


Students with an undergraduate degree who are planning to pursue MD, JD, PhD, or other graduate degrees are encouraged to apply for a post-baccalaureate/pre-doctoral fellowship. Students who have achieved MD, JD, PhD, or other advanced degrees in relevant fields are encouraged to apply for a post-doctoral fellowship. No bioethics experience is required or expected.

The department prides itself on being a diverse and interdisciplinary community. Fellows have come from a variety of academic and social backgrounds and have pursued research on a wide range of topics. An intellectual environment composed of such different points of view has greatly added to the rigor and success of our program. Fellows are selected on the basis of their previous academic achievements, commitment to scholarship, and the contribution they are likely to make in the field of bioethics.

Two-year positions begin September 2013. Salary is commensurate with federal guidelines.


To apply, please mail or email the following materials to Becky Chen:


Official undergraduate and graduate transcripts

One or more writing sample(s) that demonstrate analytical or critical thinking ability (not to exceed 30 pages collectively)

Three letters of recommendation (preferably from individuals familiar with your academic work)

A 1000-word statement of interest which may include discussion of how the fellowship fits into your career goals and potential topics you would like to investigate while here. You might also discuss how you can lend a unique perspective to the department or contribute to the department’s diversity.

Post-doctoral application deadline is December 31, 2012. Post-baccalaureate/pre-doctoral application deadline is January 15, 2013. Notification of acceptance will be in March 2013. Contact Becky Chen for questions regarding the application process.
