Fellow-in-Residence
November 15, 2017

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

The Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University invites applications from a broad range of researchers and practitioners who will work over the course of the year on pressing issues in ethics. Faculty in arts and sciences and professional schools, postdoctoral scholars, practitioners, and researchers from industry, government, and NGOs are eligible to apply. 
 
For the 2018-19 academic year, the theme at the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics will be Political Economy and Justice. 

Priority will be given to early career scholars and practitioners whose work closely aligns with this theme, but we reserve some "open" slots for senior scholars and practitioners, and for exceptionally competitive applicants whose work in ethics falls outside this scope. The goal will be to craft a cohort in which "thematic" fellows and "open" fellows will all find valuable intellectual partnerships to support and spur their work. 

Applicants who engage in scholarship of broad social and political importance from cross-cultural perspectives, and demonstrate a commitment to the public dissemination of their ideas may be interested in our Berggruen Fellowship opportunity. We particularly welcome applications for the Berggruen Fellowship from researchers and practitioners addressing great transformations that impact the world today in connection with our theme of Political Economy and Justice (e.g. artificial intelligence and the future of work, the ethics of bioengineering, crises of legitimacy in political and social institutions).

Candidates for the Berggruen Fellowships will be asked to indicate this interest on the application form, and are strongly encouraged to apply in teams of two or three. Team applications must be submitted individually, with each separate application indicating the names of the other team members.

All Fellows-in-Residence will be expected to devote the majority of their time to their individual projects and to participate in regular work-in-progress seminars. In addition, Fellows will be invited to participate in the Center's programming, which includes public lectures, themed seminars and reading groups, conferences, workshops, and less formal discussions.

ELIGIBILITY

Applicants must have a PhD, professional degree, or a minimum of 5 years of equivalent professional experience, and any discipline or professional field will be considered. Those who have previously held a yearlong residential Fellowship at the Center are not eligible; this limitation does not apply to former Undergraduate Fellows or former Graduate Fellows. The Fellowship-in-Residence Program runs the course of the academic year, typically from the beginning of September through the end of May and is open to all applicants who meet the above criteria, regardless of citizenship.

APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS

To apply, you will need to complete an online application form which includes submission of the following (pdf, .doc, or .docx versions are acceptable):

• Cover letter stating your background and interest in the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics Fellows-in-Residence Program
• Three professional references
• Recent writing sample
• Research proposal
• CV

The deadline for submitting this application is November 15, 2017. Please note that the application form will be saved automatically while in progress, but no edits or alterations will be allowed once you have submitted the application.

Should you have any questions regarding this application process, please send an email to applications [__at__] ethics [dot] harvard [dot] edu.
