Postdoctoral Fellowships in Science & Theology/Religion

University of St Andrews

Applications are invited for ten postdoctoral fellowships in science and religion/theology. The fellowships will run for two-years, beginning September 2017, and will be hosted in a Department of Theology/Religion at one of 18 participating universities from the US, UK, and Europe. Fellows will receive a competitive salary and a generous research and travel budget. They will conduct their own research on a topic of their choosing that fits the project research vision, teach one class in science and religion, and participate in a fully-funded series of workshops together with the other postdoctoral fellows, their mentors, and senior scholars in the field. Applications Due: December 9, 2016.

The project director is Dr John Perry, who will be available for informal conversations (not interviews) with prospective applicants at the AAR Annual Meeting in San Antonio. Full details, including our research vision and application instructions, are available at Direct enquires to

Qualifications: Applicants must hold a PhD in theology (broadly conceived) or a science. Advanced degrees in both theology/religion and a science are preferable. The successful candidate will have potential for world-class research at the intersection of theology and science, a clearly-defined research agenda that is both ambitious and achievable, and excellent teaching skills. When selecting a host institution, candidates are encouraged to apply elsewhere from where they obtained their PhD.
