Johns Hopkins, founded in 1876, is America’s first research university and home to nine world-class academic divisions working together as one university.
Hecht-Levi Fellowship Program Description:
The Hecht-Levi Fellowship is a two-year program of study and experiential learning in bioethics administered by the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics. The main goal of the Fellowship is to launch the careers of the next generation of bioethics scholars, so the program offers a considerable amount of protected time for research and publication.
All Hecht-Levi Fellows participate in weekly seminars or discussions, pursue their own scholarship in bioethics, collaborate with faculty on selected projects in bioethics, and engage in teaching. Each Fellow designs an individual program tailored to their particular goals, interests, and background.

· Weekly seminars, presentations and discussions with leading academic and policy makers;
· Individualized research program;
· Bioethics coursework through the Berman Institute’s Master in Bioethics program;

· Teaching (serve as course director, co-director, or TA depending on experience and background);
· Professional development training;
· Berman Institute’s outreach efforts via social media;
· $62,500 per year, plus health and other benefits
