Regius Professor of Moral and Pastoral Theology

Faculty of Theology and Religion in association with Christ Church

The Faculty of Theology and Religion and Christ Church intend to appoint to the Regius Professorship of Moral and Pastoral Theology with effect from 1st October 2024 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The Regius Professor of Moral and Pastoral Theology is appointed to research, teach, and supervise in the area of Christian Ethics. The Faculty understands Christian ethics as a broad field that includes both historical and systematic or constructive reflection on the long tradition of Christian moral thought, as well as how that tradition bears on contemporary issues and debates. As such, we welcome applications from candidates who will deepen our Faculty's historic strengths in traditional areas of Christian ethics, and also from those who can help us develop new strengths in more recently thriving areas like, for example, environmental ethics, Ethics and Artificial Intelligence, bioethics, or disability studies. This professorial position is likely to be especially attractive to candidates who enjoy working in an interdisciplinary way and who value reflection on the place of their work within the larger field of Theology and Religion.

You should have a track record of published research of an outstanding international quality in modern, contemporary, or systematic theology, together with an international reputation which will contribute to and enhance the profile of the subject and of the Faculty of Theology and Religion. You should have proven experience of academic leadership and successful graduate supervision. You should be able to demonstrate commitment to providing excellent teaching and fostering high achievement at undergraduate and postgraduate level, and to applying for external grant funding and to identifying opportunities for successful grant capture.

The Regius Professor will also hold a Cathedral canonry at Christ Church. The person appointed must be ordained either in the Church of England, or in an Episcopal Church in communion with the Church of England. Please see the Further Particulars document under ‘The Canonries of Christ Church' for requirements.

If you would like to discuss this post, please contact the Faculty Board Chair for Theology & Religion, Professor William Wood ([email protected]). Questions about the canonry and Cathedral duties associated with the post should be directed to the Very Reverend Professor Sarah Foot, Dean of Christ Church ([email protected]). All enquiries will be treated in strict confidence and will not form part of the selection decision.

The closing date for applications is 12:00 UK time on Monday 19 February 2024. Interviews are expected to be held in late April 2024.

This post is being advertised at the same time as the Regius Professorship of Divinity (vacancy ID 170541), also in the Faculty of Theology and Religion and associated with a Cathedral canonry at Christ Church. You may apply for both posts if you wish: you will need to submit a separate application for each vacancy. Applications will be considered by the same Advisory Committee, so you may upload the same CV and supporting statement if applying for both posts.
