The Center for Bioethics and Social Sciences in Medicine — or CBSSM — is soliciting applications from qualified individuals for 1-2 post-doctoral research fellow positions for the 2017-2018 academic year.

Bioethics Post-Doctoral Research Fellow

Active projects in bioethics at CBSSM currently include the ethical, legal and social implications of genomic medicine, informed consent and therapeutic misconception, surrogate decision-making, decision-making capacity for treatment and research, deliberative democratic methods in bioethics, resource allocation and the sociology of medical ethics/bioethics, among others. A candidate’s area of focus must be in bioethics, although their backgrounds may be in social or natural sciences, humanities, medicine or law.

Decision Sciences Post-Doctoral Research Fellow

This fellowship focuses on understanding and improving the health care communication and decisions made by both patients and providers. Past post-doctoral fellows have included scholars whose research in health care communication and decision-making has been approached using theories drawn from social cognition, motivation and emotion, risk communication, human factors, ethics and economics.

Please see the CBSSM website for more details about these fellowship opportunities.
