Caroline Miles Visiting Scholarship – Deadline for proposals 24 April 2017

The Caroline Miles Visiting Scholarship is funded by the Ethox Foundation and is awarded annually to a post-doctoral or early career researcher to visit the Ethox Centre. The value of the scholarship is up to £2000, and is intended to assist scholars with travel and living costs during their visit. Visiting Scholars will spend up to a month working at the Ethox Centre in Oxford, pursuing a research project on a topic relating to one of the Ethox Centre’s four main research programmes: global health ethics; clinical ethics; public health ethics; and research ethics. They will benefit from the supervision and feedback of the Ethox research staff and will have access to the libraries and research facilities of the University of Oxford. They will also have the opportunity to attend talks and lectures which are relevant to their interests. Scholars will be expected to make a presentation on their research toward the end of their stay.
