The PhD position is open for proposals that investigate the ethical implications of greater scientific knowledge and control over human embryos in research and fertility treatment. As our understanding of embryonic development increases, there are more opportunities to make judgments as to which embryos are ‘best' for implantation. Not only this, but it is becoming possible to effect changes to embryos, either through altering the environment in which they are stored, or through intervening on them directly. The successful candidate will explore the ethical significance of these new aspects of Control.
