The Greenwall Foundation is soliciting Letters of Intent for its Greenwall Faculty Scholars Program in Bioethics, a career development award that supports innovative bioethics research by junior faculty members. Each year, up to three Greenwall Faculty Scholars are selected to receive 50 percent salary support for three years in support of their research program.
The program supports research that goes beyond current work in bioethics to pressing ethical issues in clinical care, biomedical research, and public policy. Scholars and alumni attend twice-yearly meetings, where they present their work in progress, receive feedback and mentoring from the Faculty Scholars Program Committee and other scholars, and have the opportunity to develop collaborations with other researchers. The involvement of alumni with the program provides them with ongoing opportunities for professional development and feedback and engages them in the mentoring of younger scholars.
Applicants must be a junior faculty member holding at least a 60 percent appointment in a tenure series or its equivalent at a university or nonprofit research institute in the United States. Priority will be given to applicants who have not yet been considered for tenure, who have not received a comparable career development award, and whose work will have an impact on public policy, biomedical research, or clinical practice.
The award supports 50 percent of a scholar’s salary plus benefits for three years (up to the NIH salary cap), with 10 percent institutional costs for the salary and benefits. In addition, the program provides $5,000 a year for limited project support and travel (no indirect costs).
LOIs must be received by November 1, 2017. Selected applicants will be invited to submit a full application online by January 15, 2018.
