Postdoctoral Fellowship (Fixed Term)

The Faculty of Divinity is inviting expressions of interest from recently completed or final stage doctoral students whom the Faculty might support in this year's British Academy postdoctoral Fellowships (3 years), the Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship (3 years), and Marie-Curie Fellowships (2 years).

These include, but are not limited to, biblical studies, history of Christianity, inter-faith relations, Christian Doctrine, philosophical theology, Judaism, Hinduism, Islamic theology and world Christianities. Further details about the Faculty and its research can be found at: www.

In order to be considered, it will be necessary to submit an expression of interest by midnight (GMT) on Monday 5 July 2021.
