AJOB is part of Bioethics Education Network, or bene, a newly formed NYS LLC based in Albany. bene also includes the world’s only Editor’s Blog by the editors of a major bioethics journal, as well as tens of thousands of pages of information including the definitive lists of events and jobs in the fields associated with ethics in medicine and science (stem cells, cloning, etc.). The American Journal of Bioethics is read in the office of virtually every U.S. appellate court justice, member of Congress, and even the White House. It has caused FDA scandals leading to the reform of medicine in a broad way and introduced the nation to a number of new technologies like face transplantation. It is regularly featured in places like Oprah, New York Times, etc.
Pay: $0.00 – $0.00 Per Year
Pay Description: includes travel, benefits, academic cred
Job Description: This person will be responsible for the back end of bioethics.net, blog.bioethics.net, and the interface between The American Journal of Bioethics and the above. They will interface with web designers and editors, and will be widely publicly known for their work. This internship position has been filled three times, and all three have gone on to outstanding positions that would never have been possible in an internship in a large computer corporation, even of the nature of Google. bioethics.net is, though, incidentally a partner of Apple and Google, and has relationships which this person would be able to access at every level. There simply are no internships in health policy and computing that would produce a greater yield per hour for good work. This position must be filled immediately so the first highly qualified applicant will be placed. One reference is required, but that can be by email or phone. glenn.mcgee@bioethics.net

Zotero is an easy-to-use yet powerful research tool that helps you gather, organize, and analyze sources (citations, full texts, web pages, images, and other objects), and lets you share the results of your research in a variety of ways. An extension to the popular open-source web browser Firefox, Zotero includes the best parts of older reference manager software (like EndNote)—the ability to store author, title, and publication fields and to export that information as formatted references—and the best parts of modern software and web applications (like iTunes and del.icio.us), such as the ability to interact, tag, and search in advanced ways. Zotero integrates tightly with online resources; it can sense when users are viewing a book, article, or other object on the web, and—on many major research and library sites—find and automatically save the full reference information for the item in the correct fields. Since it lives in the web browser, it can effortlessly transmit information to, and receive information from, other web services and applications; since it runs on one’s personal computer, it can also communicate with software running there (such as Microsoft Word). And it can be used offline as well (e.g., on a plane, in an archive without WiFi).
