In 2013, the McGovern Center started its Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in medical humanities and bioethics. Fellows work with the Center for two years and are provided with opportunities to apply the humanities to healthcare through teaching, research, and scholarship. Our fellows teach in Center electives, such as Introduction to Medical Humanities and Humanistic Elements of Medicine, facilitate small groups in ethics courses across the university, and develop their own courses, such as “Doctors in Medicine,” “Quackery in Medical History,” and “Lived Experiences of Illness.”
To date, the Center has welcomed six postdoctoral fellows, including one current fellow.
The McGovern Center has an opening for a postdoctoral research fellow.
The position starts September 1.
