The Caroline Miles Visiting Scholarships, funded by the Ethox Foundation, are awarded biannually to post-doctoral or early-career researchers.
Applications for the next round of scholarships are now open. The value of each scholarship is up to £2,500, and is intended to assist scholars with travel and living costs during their visit.
Scholars will spend up to a month at the Ethox Centre working on a topic relating to one of the Centre's four main research areas: global health ethics; clinical ethics; public health ethics; and research ethics.
Scholars will engage in the academic life of Ethox by participating in the Centre's activities (e.g. attend lectures and seminars), and will be invited to present at the Ethox Seminar, and write a guest post for the Ethox blog.
The deadline for applications is 21 October 2022. For more information about the scheme and how to apply please visit the Caroline Miles Visiting Scholarship.
Previous scholars have explored topics ranging from assisted reproductive technologies, community-based palliative care in refugee camps, global Health Inequalities and the NHS, and the effect of AI and big data systems on human agency and moral responsibility in healthcare. Feedback from and information about previous scholars can be found on the Caroline Miles Scholarship web pages.
