Duke University School of Medicine announces the opening of a faculty position in Research Ethics. The position will be situated in the Trent Center for Bioethics, Humanities, & History of Medicine, with the primary academic appointment to be negotiated with an appropriate academic department.
Candidates must have a doctoral degree (such as MD, PhD, or JD) and have demonstrated significant engagement and scholarship (empirical and/or theoretical) in research ethics. The successful candidate will be an individual who can advise broadly on matters of research ethics, drawing on personal experience, scholarship, and engagement with academic and other organizations/agencies promoting the ethical conduct of research. The candidate will serve as a consultant to the Duke Human Research Protection Program and the newly-created ASIST (Advancing Scientific Integrity, Services, and Training) office. Administrative and educational responsibilities will include teaching and coordinating Responsible Conduct of Research training within the School of Medicine. It is expected that these activities will occupy approximately 50-70% of the faculty member’s time, leaving the remainder of time free for independent scholarly activities. Salary, academic rank, and tenure-track status will be based on experience and qualifications.
Those interested in this position should send a curriculum vitae and short letter indicating their desire to be considered. The letter should include the names and contact information for three persons to supply a reference. Applications from female and minority candidates are strongly encouraged.
