PhD position in Ethics of Exchange: MPI 333 views

The Department ‘Law & Anthropology’ at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology is offering one PhD position commencing from June 2021 (to be confirmed). The position is offered within the Minerva Research Group “The Ethics of Exchange” which will focus on how the law’s boundaries are shaped in decision-making processes in organ donation and transplantation in the UK and Germany. The PhD positions are awarded for three years, with the possibility of two six-month extensions.

About the Project:
  • The Ethics of Exchange: the regulation of Organ Donation and Transplantation is an exciting new research project led by Dr. Farrah Raza that combines doctrinal legal methods and medical anthropology to uncover how the law on organ donation and transplantation is negotiated in practice in two jurisdictions with different regulations.
  • The guiding question of the project is how various actors make decisions about organ donation and transplantation in different sets of cases.
  • The aim of the project is to provide a detailed account of how the different layers of decision-making in organ donation and transplantation intermesh within the clinical setting.
  • The project will consist of two key inter-related workstreams.
  • The first workstream The Procedures and Substance of Hospital Ethics Committees and decision-making in Organ Donation and Transplantation will focus on the emergence and application of ethical frameworks and norms in practice.
  • The second workstream Religion, Culture and Minority Rights in Organ Donation and Transplantation will focus on how religious and cultural diversity is accommodated in clinical decision-making.

Requirements:

  • Applicants should hold an advanced degree in Law.
  • Excellent academic writing and communication skills in English/German are essential.
  • Earlier field experience in the designated region and knowledge of additional relevant local languages are desirable.
