Applicants must be Columbia University graduate students.
Fellows will receive a $2,500 stipend for the year.
Columbia University’s working group on Precision Medicine: Ethics, Politics, and Culture is seeking graduate fellows for the 2021-2022 academic year (appointments may be extended to 2 years). The working group provides an excellent opportunity to engage in interdisciplinary discussion, networking, and research related to recent developments in precision medicine and society.
Graduate fellows will be expected to attend all meetings (five public events followed by five working group meetings led by visiting scholars during the academic year); read circulated materials prior to the meetings and take part in conversation; provide an oral response to one of the scheduled speakers; write a short blog about that event; assist with promotion and publicity for meetings on Columbia’s campuses; and otherwise support and facilitate the work of the group. In addition, graduate fellows will help develop a manuscript on a topic related to precision medicine and society and present on it to the working group and to the Precision Medicine and Society Steering Committee.
To apply, please submit your CV and a one-page letter describing your research interests, skills and how the Graduate Fellowship will advance your professional trajectory to Bella Horton at [email protected].
