This Visiting Programme has been established by the Uehiro Foundation on Ethics and Education with a view to providing opportunities for graduate students, postdoctoral and senior academics who are ordinarily resident in Japan to study or conduct research at the University of Oxford for nine or twelve months as a Visiting Scholar. The awards are available in the field of practical ethics. A successful graduate student candidate will normally be supervised by Professor Julian Savulescu and academic staff at the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics and a successful postdoctoral or senior academic candidate will conduct their own relevant research at the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics. Successful candidates in either case will reside at St Cross College enabling him/her to benefit from the true Oxford college experience. The Visiting Programme aims to provide career development opportunities for those who are at a relatively early stage of their academic careers.
The Programme is open to graduate students, early postdoctoral researchers or Lecturer/Professors in the field of practical ethics, who are normally resident in Japan and whose first language is Japanese.
Two awards are available, funding a nine or twelve month research visit to the Uehiro Centre and residency at St Cross College for the duration of the stay.
Applications for 2020/21 academic year are to be submitted between 17 February and 16 March 2020.
