Scope

The Greenwall Faculty Scholars Program in Bioethics is a career development award to enable junior faculty members to carry out innovative bioethics research. It supports research that goes beyond current work in bioethics to help resolve pressing ethical issues in clinical, biomedical, and public health decision-making, policy, and practice, and creates a community that enhances future bioethics research by Scholars and Alumni/ae.

Each year, the Foundation selects approximately three Greenwall Faculty Scholars to receive 50 percent salary support for three years to enable them to develop their research program.

Faculty Scholars will be selected on the basis of their achievements, the strength of their research project, their commitment to the field of bioethics, and support from their home institution, including after the end of this award. While the amount and quality of an applicant’s research in bioethics will count favorably towards his/her application, outstanding candidates with less direct experience in bioethics will also be considered when their proposed work aims to advance the bioethics field.

Within this group, priority will be given to applicants whose research addresses innovative ideas and/or emerging topics. Lower priority will be given to applicants who are primarily carrying out educational reform or theoretical work with limited applicability to practice, research, or health care delivery. The Greenwall Foundation particularly welcomes applicants from backgrounds that are under-represented in bioethics and academia.

Eligibility & Submission Requirements

Only two applicants from a university will be considered. Institutions are requested to have an internal screening and selection process. If you are interested in applying for this award, please contact Karen Drew (x4824) as soon as possible, and submit a CV and 2-page pre-proposal following the NU Procedure for Programs with Limited Submissions.

Eligibility:

  • Applicants must be junior faculty members at a university or non-profit research institute that has tax-exempt status in the United States.
  • Applicants must hold a faculty appointment that allows at least 50 percent of their effort to perform research (often this is a faculty position with at least a 60 percent appointment in a tenure-track position or its equivalent).
  • Priority will be given to applicants who have not yet been considered for tenure or an equivalent promotion; whose research will have an impact on public policy, biomedical research, or clinical practice; and who will make important contributions to the field of bioethics over their careers.
