The Institute of Medical Ethics is pleased to announce two openings to join our Research Committee.
The committee is dedicated to fostering the growth and development of the Medical ethics and Bioethics communities in the UK through organisation of annual conferences, public lectures, support for PhD students and early career researchers.
We are now in a position to expand our small but very active team with two new members. We are seeking applications from academics and clinicians based in the UK conducting research in medical ethics/bioethics.
Duties of being a member include attending on average four annual meetings per year (generally in London) and our annual conference (changing locations in the UK), in addition to contributing to the organisation of the annual conference and participating in other subcommittees or tasks as they may arise. The position is not remunerated but reasonable travel expenses are covered.
Applicants must either already be members of the IME or must commit to join the IME before they become members of the committee.
In your personal statement (between 500 and 800 words) you should outline:
- Why you want to join the IME Research Committee
- Your vision for the IME Research Committee over the next three years
- How you think you can contribute to the work of the IME Research Committee
Applications will be considered by current members of the Research Committee. Information about the IME Research Committee and its current members can be found here:
Applicants will be notified by email by June 30th of the outcome of their application.
Successful applicants will be invited to join us for the next meeting of the IME Research
