About the role
The University proposes to appoint a McDonald Postdoctoral Fellow in Christian Ethics and Public Life, to be based at the McDonald Centre for Theology, Ethics, and Public Life. The post is designed to develop the career of a highly promising junior scholar and will provide the opportunity to undertake research and teaching in Christian ethics/ moral theology. This is a fixed-term post for four years, starting 1 October 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter.
You will be required to compose and pursue a coherent personal research agenda within the field of Christian ethics, and to publish the results. You will also contribute to teaching in the area and will support the Director in administering and developing the McDonald Centre.
You will hold a doctorate in Christian ethics / moral philosophy or in a closely related discipline, and will demonstrate the potential for producing distinguished research. You will have excellent communication skills and the ability to teach undergraduates to a high standard. Efficiency in administration is required and competence in managing a website is highly desirable. A record of successful publication will be of benefit, as will evidence of academic initiative and collaborative work.
The duties and skills required are described in more detail in the further particulars.
