Call for applications: Fellows-in-Residence Program 2017-2018

Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics

Harvard University


The Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University invites applications from a broad range of researchers who will work over the course of the year on pressing issues in ethics. Faculty, postdoctoral scholars, practitioners, and researchers from industry, government, and NGOs seeking sabbatical time to pursue research directly relevant to ethical issues are eligible to apply.


The majority of Fellows will be selected in relation to an annual theme, but in each year some "open" slots will be reserved for applicants working on any issue in ethics. In each year, 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. For the 2017-18 academic year, the theme at the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics will be Political Economy and Justice. 


The one-year fellowship term runs the course of the academic year, typically from the beginning of September through the end of May. 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 whose work intersects most directly with the annual theme will be invited to participate in the thematic components of the Center's programming, which consists of public lectures, conferences, and workshops.
