Liz Harman asked me to post the following announcement:
To those on the job market, and those with students on the job market:
Anyone who does ethics should seriously consider applying for the Harold T. Schapiro Postdoctoral Fellowship in Bioethics at Princeton. The ad says (and we really mean it) "an applicant may have a background in any area of ethical studies, not necessarily in bioethics." The application requires a 1,500-word research proposal, so you do have to have in mind a serious research project in bioethics. But you do not have to already be doing bioethics! Princeton is a wonderful place to spend one to three years! Please feel free to email me if you have specific questions about the postdoc.
