Postdoctoral Program


Thank you for your interest in postdoctoral fellowships at the Institute for Practical Ethics. Our recruitment for the 2018-2019 academic year has concluded, and we will announce our new postdoctoral fellows this spring.

Please visit this page again in Fall 2018 for information about the 2019-2020 recruitment.

 

Visiting/Guest Scholars Program


IPE offers a limited number of Visiting/Guest Scholar positions each academic year in order to support advanced research and writing on any aspect of the mission of the IPE.

Visiting/Guest scholars must have their own extramural funding, but are provided with shared office space, as well as full access to all UCSD academic, institutional, and recreational resources. They benefit from interaction in a supportive, interdisciplinary community of scholars and have an opportunity to present their research.

Visiting/Guest scholars are not required to have a UC affiliation.

International Visiting/Guest Scholars will be responsible for their J-1 visa fees, which are approximately $800 for processing costs and SEVIS and visa fees, but may be higher depending on one’s country of origin.

How do I apply?

Email your C.V., desired dates of stay and a one-page description of the work you would do while at IPE to ipe@ucsd.edu.
