St Andrews Fellow in Science and Theology

St Andrews Fellow in Theology & Science - AR1831SB

School of Divinity, Salary: £31,656 - £34,576 per annum, Start: January 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter, Fixed term for 33 months

The University of St Andrews invites applications to be the St Andrews Fellow in Theology & Science. This is 33-month postdoctoral fellowship, beginning January 2017.

The fellow’s primary responsibility is to pursue her or his research agenda, publishing both in established journals of science and religion as well as ‘mainstream’ theology journals where the subject may, so far, be overlooked. Secondary responsibilities include creating and teaching one new undergraduate course on some area of science and religion, contributing to other teaching modules as needed, and assisting with administrative responsibilities for a wider network of associated science and religion projects. Salary and research/travel budget are competitive. The fellow will work closely with Dr John Perry, to whom enquires may be directed (jmp24@st-andrews.ac.uk).

Research Vision: The post is associated with a new, international project in theology and science based at St Andrews but involving universities from across the United States and European Union. Its goal is to promote exploration of a new generation of questions at the intersection of theology, religion, and the human and natural sciences. While previous generations have asked methodological questions—sometimes including challenges from scientists that cooperation with religion violates the norms of rationality, and from religious believers that science threatens orthodoxy—we take for granted that serious scholarly study always aspires to interdisciplinary cooperation. Rather than focusing chiefly on methodological questions, we are interested in research that brings these disciplines together in productive and creative ways. The successful candidate will pursue a major research project related to, or inspired by, one of the topics listed in our complete Research Vision, available here: http://tinyurl.com/researchvisionstandrews.

About the University: The University of St Andrews is the third-oldest university in the English-speaking world and is consistently ranked among the top in the United Kingdom. The School of Divinity is the top-ranked theology and religion programme in the UK, according to The Guardian. It has a diverse and ecumenical faculty and a highly international student body.

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. Ideally, the candidate’s project and interests will complement existing strengths in the University’s School of Divinity.

The University of St Andrews is committed to promoting equality of opportunity for all, which is further demonstrated through its working on the Gender and Race Equality Charters and being awarded the Athena SWAN award for women in science, HR Excellence in Research Award and the LGBT Charter; http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/hr/edi/diversityawards/.

Applications are particularly welcome from women, who are under-represented in Research posts at the University. You can find out more about Equality & Diversity at https://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/hr/edi/.

Executive Summary of the Templeton Grant: The ReFaithing Science at Regent College initiative takes up the theme of Science in Dialogue by addressing the following Big Question: “How can the relationship between Christian faith and scientific endeavor be conceptualized and communicated in a way that effectively engages diverse audiences?” Sir John Templeton recognized that science and spirituality should be neither sealed in separate boxes nor positioned at opposite ends of a battlefield, yet even a cursory glance at contemporary culture reveals that the supposed incompatibility and even hostility between faith and science is something of a truism in much of Western society. Regent College believes that this widespread perception is a significant threat to the development of theology and science alike, as well as to the spiritual and intellectual flourishing of countless individuals. The project team proposes an alternative model for the relationship between faith and science: mutual coinherence, or existence within one another. The goal of each project activity is to explore the implications of this model and to communicate it in an accessible form that encourages and enables further exploration of science, theology, and their interaction. The project outputs—academic publications, public lectures, two graduate-level courses of study, and an online hub for content and resources related to faith and science—will target different audiences with the same basic narrative, a story of one world, created by one God, who can be known and worshiped through both theology and science—and who is best known and best worshiped when theology and science work together. By introducing this narrative to present and future thought leaders in faith communities, scientific communities, and the wider world, Regent College hopes to contribute thousands of critically engaged, spiritually committed, and graciously inclined participants to the ongoing dialogue between faith and science.
