inter-institutional collaboration – across NIH Institutes and Centers and beyond. The incumbent will

NIH community of investigators, research staff, clinicians, and administrative and program staff,
and be an active participant in the Bioethics Consultation Service. The incumbent will serve as
an advisor to the Chief, Department of Bioethics, the NIH Clinical Center Director, NIH Institute
and Center leadership, and others on bioethical issues through consultation, participation in
institutional review boards, and participation on the NIH committees and task forces.

BSJ is tasked with developing and teaching bioethics as well as general oversight to ensure bioethics content integration.

BSJ also wishes to bolster its growing research portfolio in social justice-oriented bioethics, including externally-funded research. A successful candidate’s research could either be in bioethics education, or in some other area of social justice-oriented bioethics. A successful candidate will also have an interest in contributing to the outreach work of BSJ, such as hosting meetings with local community groups, and facilitating campus dialogue around bioethics and social justice.
