Faculty Scholars Program in Bioethics

**Limited Award Notice - for assistant professors (UTL & MCL)-University-wide internal selection process required**

This webpage contains the 2011 internal selection process for your reference only.


Internal Dean of Research Office deadline: Monday, September 26, 2011, at 12 noon (see the internal submission guidelines below)
Preliminary Proposals to Sponsor: Nov. 1, 2011
12 applicants will be invited to submit full proposals by Feb. 2012
3 Greenwall Faculty Scholars will be selected to begin their awards in the summer of 2012.

Number of applicants permitted: 1 (see internal submission guidelines below)
Only one applicant from an institution will be considered; institutions are requested to have an internal screening and selection process. At a university with a law school, medical school, and school of arts and sciences, for example, only one candidate may submit a preliminary application.

Amount of funding:
Greenwall Faculty Scholars will receive 50% salary support up to NIH salary cap guidelines and benefits for 3 years, as well as funds to attend an annual meeting of Scholars with the Advisory Board.


Faculty Scholars will be selected on the basis of their achievements, the strength of their research project, their commitment to the field of bioethics, and support from their home institution. While the amount and quality of an applicant's research in bioethics will count favorably towards his/her application, outstanding candidates with less direct experience in bioethics will also be considered.

Scientific advances in the life sciences have raised dilemmas in public policy, research, and clinical practice regarding such issues as human cloning, stem cell research, gene therapy, and new information technologies. Effective approaches and resolutions to such problems may come from a variety of disciplines including medicine, law, philosophy, religion, other fields in the humanities, and the social sciences.

The Greenwall Faculty Scholars Program in Bioethics is a career development award to enable outstanding junior faculty members to carry out original research that will help resolve important policy and clinical dilemmas at the intersection of ethics and the life sciences. This research will also put Faculty Scholars in a position to help set public policy and standards of clinical practice.
