Informed consent is central to the ethics of human subjects research. However, it remains both conceptually and practically underspecified. A conceptually clear account of informed consent that is appropriate to the broad array of human subjects research,
from medical to social science, has been elusive. Challenges to the ethics of informed consent have been compounded by the globalization of research and rapid technological developments.
We invite the submission of abstracts (up to 750 words) on topics such as : Conducting research on vulnerable populations ;Conducting research in virtual environments ; Community-based participatory research and its challenges to traditional informed consent ; Informed consent, parental/guardian responsibilities, and minors ; etc.. Please email abstracts (and questions) to Ronald Sandler (email@example.com) by May 1st.
The medical faculty of Nijmegen University (The Netherlands) will appoint 3 part-time professors of medical ethics (for one year with the possibility of tenure). Candidates should have a PhD in ethics, care ethics, ethics of new technologies or ethics of healthcare, and be interested in elaborating issues in virtue ethics. We prefer colleagues with experience in education. Interest and skills in multidisciplinary approaches in education and research, capacity to conduct education in small groups and coach students in writing theses are required for this job.
