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 selection committee will also be mindful of the impact that the Covid-19 pandemic may have had on candidates’ careers as a result of additional caring responsibilities or other factors.
