Assistant Professor at the Centre for Comparative Theology

The University of Lucerne is the youngest university in Switzerland. The roots of the Faculty of Theology extend back into the 16th century. On the foundation of the Judeo-Christian tradition, professors conduct research and lecture on individual theological disciplines in an interdisciplinary dis-course with other related academic fields. The faculty recognises that the local church and the world church are connected and sees ecumenical and interreligious dialogue as a top priority. In Switzerland, the faculty takes a leading role in training theologians.
