Job vacancy: PhD on human tissue donation at Erasmus MC

The Department of Medical Ethics, Philosophy and History of Medicine (MEFG) of Erasmus MC is looking for a PhD candidate to work on the project “I Give You My Body. A historical-ethical study on the donation of human tissues in Dutch medicine”.

The PhD candidate will answer questions such as:

Where does the “gift paradigm” in the transfer of human tissue historically come from? What moral principles underlie this paradigm? How has the gift paradigm in the Netherlands been elaborated in the field of three donation practices: gamete donation, organ donation, and other uses of body material? And which new donation practices are putting pressure on the gift paradigm and the moral handling of human tissue in medicine?

Deadline for applications: 29 November 2022.
