Mexico City, 24 June 2014, prior to World Congress of Bioethics
The Clinical Center Department of Bioethics at the U.S. National Institutes of Health and the University of Bergen invite international applicants for an intensive workshop to support the research of early career bioethics scholars. The one day workshop will include presentations by experienced academics on bioethics research methods, research programs, and career planning. In addition, each participant will receive expert and peer mentoring on a conceptual or empirical work in progress. The workshop is intended to be complementary to the World Congress of Bioethics (25 – 28 June 2014). Workshop participants are therefore also expected to attend the World Congress of Bioethics and to have submitted a paper or symposium proposal to that conference (though acceptance of the proposal is not a requirement).
Successful applicants from low- and middle-income country institutions (World Bank criteria) will be fully supported to attend the pre-conference workshop and the World Congress of Bioethics, including travel costs, accommodation, and registration fees. Individuals from high-income country institutions are welcome to apply, but will be expected to cover their own costs. The total number of participants will be limited in order to ensure sufficient mentoring for each.
Application requirements:
Curriculum VitaeAn abstract, complete unpublished draft paper, or empirical research proposalConfirmation from the International Association of Bioethics of submission of a paper or symposium proposal (see for details; World Congress of Bioethics deadline is 1 December 2013)
Deadline: 15 January 2014.
