The Nuffield Council on Bioethics is an independent body that examines and reports on ethical issues in biology and medicine. It was established by the Trustees of the Nuffield Foundation in 1991, and since 1994 it has been funded jointly by the Foundation, the Wellcome Trust and the Medical Research Council. The Council has achieved an international reputation for advising policy makers and stimulating debate in bioethics.
The Fellow will produce a short briefing note (a ‘POSTnote’) on an area of public policy that raises bioethical issues. The Fellowship is open to postgraduate students registered for a PhD in a bioethics-related subject at a UK university.
Applications for this fellowship have now closed. You can also keep in touch with fellowship opportunities by following us on Twitter.
