Residential fellowships etc. - The Lab “Project on Institutional Corruption”
January 15, 2010

Call for Applications

The Edmond J. Safra Foundation Center for Ethics invites applications for its newly launched five-year project, the Lab on “Institutional Corruption” — roughly defined as legal, even currently ethical acts which tend either to weaken the effectiveness of an institution, or that weaken public trust of the institution. The aim of the Lab is to study institutional corruption with both an empirical and normative focus. The empirical research will explore whether and when institutional corruption exists. The normative project will develop tools to address institutional corruption when it is found to exist. Some of the work will be done by the Lab; some of it has already been done and simply needs better translation across institutional fields; and some we hope to inspire by providing a better framework into which the work might fit. The ultimate objective of the Lab is to produce a set of tools that institutions might use both to understand the problem of “institutional corruption,” and to respond to it.
The project invites applications from all disciplines, and is especially eager to develop multidisciplinary approaches that might integrate the work of different fields directed at a common problem.
The core of the Lab will be made up of Research Fellows, who will be in residence at Harvard. Research Fellows in residence will be expected to devote the majority of their time to the research project, and participate in a weekly seminar designing the work of the Lab, and evaluating its progress.
A broad range of researchers are invited to submit proposals to the Lab, either to become residential Research Fellows, or to propose joint or collaborative research projects. Tenured and untenured faculty are invited to participate, so long as their work during the fellowship is primarily directed towards the project of the Lab. Alternatively, faculty members are invited to propose projects that they would direct but that would be executed at the Lab. Postdoctoral applications are eagerly encouraged, as well as proposals from researchers in industry or government seeking sabbatical time to pursue research directly relevant to the project. Researchers need not be located at Harvard.
The deadline date for receipt of applications for projects beginning September 2010 is January 15, 2010.
Further details about the Project, the Operational Plan, and procedures for submitting an application are available on our website: http://www.ethics.harvard.edu/lab
