Greenwall Faculty Scholars Program in Bioethics: Call for Applicants
October 2, 2007, Volume 54, No. 6

The selection committee for the University of Pennsylvania’s nominee for the Greenwall Faculty Scholars Program in Bioethics invites qualified university faculty to apply.

The Greenwall Faculty Scholars Program in Bioethics is a career development award to enable outstanding junior faculty members to carry out original research that will help resolve important policy and clinical dilemmas at the intersection of ethics and the life sciences. This research will also put Faculty Scholars in a position to help set public policy and standards of clinical practice. Applicants must be junior faculty members holding at least a 60 percent appointment at a university.

To learn more about the Program, visit www.greenwallfsp.org.

Applicants for the University’s nominee should write a three-page letter of intent that includes (1) a description of their research proposal, particularly its significance; how it will be carried out; how it is likely to have an impact on public policy or clinical practice; and (2) a personal statement describing their goals in the field of bioethics. This letter should be double-spaced and in type no smaller than 12-point. The applicant should also submit a curriculum vitae, no longer than 5 single-spaced pages and a cover page including the project title and applicant’s contact information. These materials are due by 5 p.m. on October 31, 2007 via email to Debbie Polekoff at Debbie.polekoff@uphs.upenn.edu.
