Applications are invited from ambitious academics in the field of Religion, Theology and Culture. We are looking, in particular, for outstanding candidates to develop our existing strengths in World Religions and Ethics. They must have the ability to teach Indian Religion and/or Judaism at both undergraduate and postgraduate level and have the ability to contribute to modules on environmental ethics, human rights, and interfaith dialogue.

Our department covers a broad range of subjects: history, classics, philosophy, theology and religious studies, English literature and creative writing. It has strong links with The National Archives, particularly through the 17th-century Hearth Tax Project, The Globe, Wimbledon Bookfest and numerous Christian churches and Islamic organisations.

This is an exciting time for the University; our new £35m state-of-the art library has just opened and we are continuing to develop a number of external partnerships across the globe.

We have a strong emphasis on supporting our students to reach their full potential in order to launch themselves onto successful graduate careers and we are embarking on a radical programme of enhancement in learning and teaching across all our academic areas. ‘In the Complete University Guide 2018, Roehampton is the highest-ranked modern university in London. Modern, or new, universities are defined as those granted university status post- 1992. Complete University Guide does not itself define modern universities and does not produce a separate league table in which these are ranked.’

The University has a beautiful, vibrant parkland campus, is located in the heart of south-west London and offers excellent facilities for researching, learning, teaching and working.
