Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Natural Theology

Applications for this vacancy closed on 19 January 2018 at 12:00PM
The University proposes to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Natural
Theology to be based at the Ian Ramsey Centre for Science and Religion in the
Faculty of Theology and Religion. This is a fixed-term post available for 2
years from 1 September 2018.



This appointment is a key component of a 2 year research project, directed by
Professor Alister McGrath, entitled “Renewal of Natural Theology: Academic
Engagement and Church Outreach”. The Fellow will be required to develop
research in the field of natural theology, with a particular focus on
assessing its importance academically (as an intellectual interface between
science and faith), apologetically (as a means of helping the churches engage
with a scientific culture through theological education and preaching), and
spiritually (in terms of helping Christians to see the natural world as God’s
creation, and explore how this impacts on their faith). As well as undertaking
research, she/he will also contribute to teaching in the area at both
undergraduate and graduate level, and will support the Director in
administering and developing the Ian Ramsey Centre.



The successful candidate will hold a doctorate in a discipline relevant to the
field of natural theology, and will demonstrate the potential for producing
distinguished research. She/He will have excellent communication skills and
experience of public presentation of academic research or public engagement.
Publications in fields of relevance to natural theology, or the work and
outreach of the Ian Ramsey Centre, will be of benefit, as will familiarity
with the use of Social Media in promoting events.



The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 19 January 2018.
