The Reilly Center received a grant for Ethics Education in Science and Engineering (EESE) from the National Science Foundation and is looking for a postdoctoral fellow to help with the project. (See original story here.)
This project on Citizen-Scientists as Agents of Change: Training the Trainer in the Ethics of Science and Technology seeks to produce science and engineering graduate students who will be models of the ethically engaged citizen-scientist. Each year for three years, fifteen gradate students at the University of Notre Dame will receive both classroom and experiential learning. The graduate students' training starts with an intensive, one-week citizen-scientist ethics boot camp, and is reinforced for the remainder of the academic year with mandatory, follow-on, in-service projects. The students who participate in this train-the-trainer program will take what they learn back into their laboratories, classrooms, professional associations, and on into their own later careers. Through their actions they will serve as models and trainers themselves.
The postdoctoral fellow will contribute to this NSF-EESE project, teach courses in the History and Philosophy of Science (HPS) graduate program and Science, Technology, and Values (STV) undergraduate minor program, and perform original research. See the Reilly Center website for more information about the postdoctoral position, NSF-EESE project, HPS program, and STV program.
