Opening: Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Theology and the Arts

We wish to appoint a Lecturer (a standard position equivalent to a US Assistant Professor) within the Institute for Theology, Imagination and the Arts in the School of Divinity at the University of St Andrews, Scotland. You will be a scholar with a growing international research reputation in Theology and the Arts, and commitment to delivering high-quality teaching within that broad field. You will be expected to have a range of interests that strengthen or complement those in the Institute and the School, to be active in research publication, and to be capable of teaching the subject to undergraduate and taught postgraduate students from a wide range of backgrounds.

You should have academic and/or professional training in both theology and one of the arts (musical, visual, dramatic, or literary), and hold a PhD in a cognate discipline. We welcome applications from candidates with any theological and artistic specialisms within this interdisciplinary field, and particularly invite applications from those who complement our current strengths, for example by being able to contribute to our growing collaborative work in Sacred Music.

It is essential that you have a strong research record, potential for excellent teaching, and an interest in collegial, interdisciplinary work. You should also have some familiarity with grant-seeking processes in relation to research councils and other sources.

Closing Date: 12 March 2018

Salary: £39,992 – £49,149 per annum

Start: 1 September 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter
