Center for Genetic Research Ethics and Law
Department of Bioethics, Case Western Reserve University
Department of Bioethics, Cleveland Clinic
The Center for Genetic Research Ethics and Law (CGREAL) is recruiting 1-2 post-doctoral trainees who have demonstrated promise as future leaders in research examining ethical, legal, and social issues (ELSI) in human genetics, and who would benefit from didactic training and intensive mentorship. The goal of the CGREAL Post-Doctoral Training Program is to train researchers whose work is focused on ELSI in the design and conduct of human genetic research, the translation of research results into clinical medicine, public health, and health policy needs related to genetics. We offer a flexible 1-2 year training program to help guide young investigators in this field of study and to provide them with integrated but focused training.
Program Description: CGREAL is an NIH-funded Center of Excellence in ELSI Research (CEER) directed through a collaborative partnership between Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) and the Cleveland Clinic. This collaboration allows post-doctoral trainees to participate in the experiential learning environments of both institutions and work closely with a network of scholars engaged in related conceptual and empirical work. Each CGREAL trainee defines a unique training program that is consistent with their personal and professional goals.
The training program consists of:
• An individualized longitudinal curriculum in ethics, genetics, and social sciences, offered through relevant academic departments and programs. Upon entry into the program, each trainee’s research and clinical training is evaluated to ascertain which “package” of courses the trainee will take;
• Direct experience with a variety of clinical and research practices, conceptual paradigms, and disciplinary approaches;
• A mentored ELSI research project designed and conducted by the trainee in collaboration with his/her mentors.
Required Qualifications: An advanced professional degree (e.g., PhD, JD, MD) in the social and behavioral sciences, genetics or other basic sciences, nursing, medicine, law, or one of the humanities. Candidates interested in clinical genetics and other translational applications of genetic technologies are encouraged to apply. Successful applicants must have completed their doctoral training prior to beginning the post-doctoral program. The post-doctoral positions are currently only open to US citizens.
Application Requirements: Candidates are required to submit the following materials: 1) a recent curriculum vitae including previous research experience; 2) a personal statement describing the reason for seeking research training and specific interests in ELSI research; 3) one general letter of recommendation; 4) letter of support from the training director or doctoral committee chairperson/advisor.
Applications will be reviewed beginning November 1st, 2010 and will continue until the positions are filled.
