Fellowships at Harvard University

19 09 2008

The Edmond J. Safra Foundation Center for Ethics encourages teaching and research about ethical issues in public life and the professions; helps meet the growing need for teachers and scholars who address questions of moral choice in practical ethics and in areas such as architecture, business, education, government, journalism, law, medicine, public health, and public policy; brings together those with competence in philosophical thought and those with experience in professional education; and promotes a perspective on ethics informed by both theory and practice.
Fellows participate in the weekly seminar of the Center, which discusses problems of teaching and research in ethics. They enjoy access to a wide range of activities in all of the professional schools at Harvard, as well as the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, including opportunities to participate in courses, colloquia, curricular development, collaborative research, study groups, casewriting workshops, and clinical programs. A significant part of their time is devoted to conducting their own research in ethics.
A University committee of Harvard faculty members, representing several of the professional schools and Harvard College, select the Faculty Fellows. Applicants are judged on the quality of their achievements in their field of specialization and their ability to benefit from work in the Center; the contributions they are likely to make in the future in higher education through teaching and writing about ethical issues; and the probable significance of their proposed research and its relevance to the purposes of the Center. Applicants should hold a doctorate in philosophy, political theory, theology or related disciplines; or a graduate degree in one of the professions. Preference will be given to applicants at an early stage of their careers, normally no more than ten years from their first academic appointment. The Faculty Fellowships are open to all regardless of citizenship.
Stipends and Conditions
Fellows normally receive stipends of up to one-half their academic year salaries (not exceeding a maximum stipend set each fall) for the fellowship period. Their home institution is expected to provide at least half the salary, plus all benefits. Overseas fellows and those without regular academic appointments, or any other source of income, are eligible for stipends depending on individual circumstances. Each fellow is provided with an office, library privileges, and a research allowance. They are expected to devote fulltime to the activities of the Center during the period of the fellowship, September 1 through June 30.
