The (Hi)story of Bioethics – Student Fellowships available

24 November 2010

An excellent opportunity for students working in bioethics:


The (Hi)story of Bioethics – 5 Student Fellowships available

We have a special meeting on the (Hi)story of Bioethics, to be held at Chancellors Conference Centre in Manchester, UK, on the 25th of January. It is an invitation-only meeting. However, we would like to extend a fully funded invitation to FIVE UK PHD Students, on the basis of their special interest in this area and the advantage to their own Doctoral studies of Bioethics.

With funding from GLEUBE (Globalising European Bioethics Education), a European Commission funded Erasmus Mundus program co-ordinated by Mark Cutter and by the Centre for Social Ethics and Policy at Manchester University, this event is organised by the ESRC Centre for the Economic and Social Aspects of Genomics (Cesagen): a Lancaster-Cardiff collaboration.

We aim to produce (subject to review and approval) a special issue of the Bulletin of the John Rylands University Library of Manchester, marking the fifth decade of the field of Bioethics.

We are able to fund reasonable UK return travel expenses for the 5 student fellowships,plus dinner with our invited guests on the 24th, and accommodation at the conference centre for that evening.In order to be considered for the fellowships, we are asking students to submit a short (1 page) summary of their Doctoral research and how this fellowship will be advantageous to their work. These should be received by us no later than 6th December.

We would also like to ask PhD supervisors to bring this opportunity to the notice of their students and to encourage them to apply.We look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards

Ruth Chadwick & Søren Holm
