5.12.22: Ariel University (AU), Israel’s newest public university, offers competitive fellowships for outstanding young researchers from North America interested in postdoctoral studies at AU during the academic year starting in October 2022. The candidate should plan to conduct research in their academic field on a full-time basis in an established AU research team, with an advisor who is a faculty member at the university. Applications are due by June 15, 2022 and candidates will be informed by Aug. 1, 2022.

5.9.22: The University of Miami Miller School of Medicine's Institute for Bioethics and Health Policy is seeking applications for an Associate Professor to focus on work in ethics and health information technology. Applicants should have an exemplary record of funded research and publications in ethics, best practices, governance or other topics in biomedical informatics or closely related fields; have experience as an instructor or curriculum developer in the areas of data science ethics or research ethics; be familiar with academic medical center operations, including electronic health records, laboratory information systems, and medical education; and have experience with or be willing to learn about hospital ethics processes and to assist in an ethics consult service.

5.4.22: The APPE IEB® National Case Writing Committee is looking for four new members. If you are interested in joining our committee, please email Dr. Robert Boyd Skipper at [email protected] by June 1.

We will be holding our annual case-writing retreat July 25-28 in person at the Prindle Institute for Ethics at DePauw University (Greencastle, Ind.). You are responsible for your own travel arrangements to Greencastle. At the retreat, writers will work both individually and collaboratively to produce the 17 cases that will be used for the 2023 APPE Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl®. Our cases cover a wide range of topics, so writers from any area or specialization are welcome. Committee members will be expected to submit numerous ideas before the retreat. The committee will then agree on writing assignments taken from the submitted ideas, so we can start researching and writing on the first day. The number of cases each person must produce will be determined in part by the size of the committee. We are hoping for a committee of eight people, so, ideally, that each person would only need to produce no more than three cases. With fewer members, of course, those numbers must change. Writers will have ample alone time, but we will gather each day for a group critique of the latest drafts.

While all academics think they are good writers, ethics bowl case-writers actually do have to write well. Case-writers must also respond well to criticism, since much of that will be flying around the room. We use the latest edition of the Chicago Manual of Style, supplemented by a Ethics Bowl case-writing style sheet.
