Greenwall Faculty Scholars Program in Bioethics: November 9
October 13, 2009, Volume 56, No. 07

Faculty in the University of Pennsylvania are invited to submit a proposal for the Greenwall Faculty Scholars Program in Bioethics.

The Program is a career development award to enable outstanding 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. To maximize Scholars’ development, three years of support are provided, requiring a 50% time commitment in each of the three years. This research will also put Faculty Scholars in a position to help set public policy and standards of clinical practice.

Potential applicants are strongly urged to consult the Greenwall Faculty Scholar website for details on the program, eligibility and a competitive application: www.greenwallfsp.org

Penn will nominate one applicant. To apply to be the Penn nominee, applicants must 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, and 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 and a cover page including the project title and applicant’s contact information.

Applications are due by 9 a.m. on November 9 to Robin Hartley, hartleyr@mail.med.upenn.edu, Fax (215) 573-0246, Tel. (215) 573-0246.
