NIH Post-Baccalaureate Bioethics Fellowship

Bioethics Department at the NIH is now accepting applications for its post-baccalaureate fellowship program!

The Department of Bioethics is pleased to offer a limited number of two-year post-baccalaureate fellowships. Fellows participate in the activities and the intellectual life of our interdisciplinary department and study ethical issues related to biomedical research, clinical practice, genetics, biotechnology, public health, and health policy. They conduct mentored theoretical and empirical research on a range of bioethical fields of interest. For a typical fellow, this research yields multiple first-authored publications in premier academic journals. In addition to research and writing, fellows participate in weekly bioethics seminars, case conferences, ethics consultations, and IRB deliberations, and have access to multiple educational opportunities at NIH.  No prior bioethics experience is required or expected.

Fellowships begin in September 2018. Stipends are commensurate with NIH Intramural Research Training Award guidelines.

Applicants for post-baccalaureate fellowships must have earned their degree no more than 3 years prior to the start date of the fellowship. Students planning to pursue MD, JD, PhD or other graduate degrees are encouraged to apply for post-baccalaureate fellowships. Only U.S. citizens are eligible.

Applications comprise: resume/CV, undergraduate transcript, three letters of recommendation, a statement of interest, and one or two writing samples. Writing samples should total fewer than 30 double-spaced pages and should demonstrate analytical or critical thinking ability. They need not be on a bioethics topic. Most successful applicants submit samples that defend a position or analyze an argument. The statement of interest should be up to 1000 words and explain how the fellowship fits into your career goals and what potential bioethics topics you would like to investigate. You may also choose to discuss how you can lend a unique perspective to the department or contribute to the department’s diversity. The NIH is dedicated to building a diverse community in its training and employment programs.
