The Jagiellonian University in Kraków invites applicants for postdoc (adjunct professor) position in the project Deep uncertainties in bioethics: genetic research, preventive medicine, reproductive decisions (Acronym: BIOUNCERTAINTY), founded by the European Research Council (ERC).

Uncertainty is everywhere, as the saying goes, but rarely considered in ethical reflections. This project aims to reinterpret ethical discussions on current advances in biomedicine: instead of understanding bioethical positions as extensions of classical normative views in ethics (consequentialism, deontologism, contractualism etc.), my project interprets them more accurately as involving various normative approaches to decision making under uncertainty.
