Oxford Brookes University

Location: Oxford
Salary: £30,487 rising to £32,982
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 24th November 2023
Closes: 4th January 2024
Fixed term contract until September 2026.
 
This post is part of the John Templeton Foundation funded research project titled “Objects of Spiritual Yearning Among the Spiritual but not Religious” led by Dr. Myron Penner (Trinity Western University, Canada), Dr. Emily Burdett (University of Nottingham, UK), and Dr. Adam Baimel (Oxford Brookes University, UK).
 
The central focus of this project is to investigate and understand how the “spiritual but not religious” (SBNR) conceive of, and interact psychologically with, the objects of their spiritual yearning. The project aims to: (a) expand the scope of existing SBNR research by developing reliable and widely-applicable means for accurately identifying this population,  (b) investigate the attributed features of the objects of spiritual yearning among SBNR and identify whether, and the contexts and mechanisms by which, spiritual yearning in SBNR parents is transmitted to their children; (c) investigate ways in which SBNR interact, psychologically, with their objects of spiritual yearning and, (d) identify features that may contribute to a flourishing spirituality for SBNR. This post will involve working alongside the PIs and research assistants on various interconnected research projects involving surveys and experiments that deploy methods from developmental, cross-cultural and cognitive psychology.
 
The position will be based at Oxford Brookes University in the Centre for Psychological Research from January 2024 (or soon thereafter).
