The Caroline Miles Visiting Scholarship is funded by the Ethox Foundation and is awarded annually to a post-doctoral or early career researcher to visit the Ethox Centre. The value of the scholarship is up to £2000, and is intended to assist scholars with travel and living costs during their visit. Visiting Scholars will spend up to a month working at the Ethox Centre in Oxford, pursuing a research project on a topic relating to one of the Ethox Centre’s four main research programmes: global health ethics; clinical ethics; public health ethics; and research ethics. They will benefit from the supervision and feedback of the Ethox research staff and will have access to the libraries and research facilities of the University of Oxford. They will also have the opportunity to attend talks and lectures which are relevant to their interests. Scholars will be expected to make a presentation on their research toward the end of their stay.
The deadline for applications is in April each year. The deadline for the academic year 2013-14 is: 2nd April 2013. Applicants are asked to state the proposed dates of their visit and to submit a CV, with the names of two referees and a 500-word statement summarising their research interests and what they hope to achieve during their visit. The application should be submitted via email to the following address:firstname.lastname@example.org. All applications will be acknowledged on receipt. If you do not receive an acknowledgment please try to contact us again. Please note that applications sent after the closing date will not be acknowledged or considered.
The Ethox Centre is a multidisciplinary bioethics research centre in the University of Oxford’s Department of Public Health. It aims to improve ethical standards in healthcare practice and in medical research through education, research, and the provision of ethics support to health professionals and medical researchers. The Ethox Centre aims in all its activities to be close to practice and seeks to engage with ethical issues faced by real world actors in real world settings. An implication of this is that the Centre places particular value on approaches to research bringing together empirical social science research and ethical analysis. The Centre’s research activities focus on three areas: global health ethics; clinical ethics; and research ethics. For more information about the Ethox Centre, go to: www.ethox.org.uk
