In other words, sociologists of religion are strongly encouraged to apply.

Assistant Professor in Catholic Studies or Theology

The role

This is an excellent opportunity to join a truly world-leading Department of Theology and Religion. Not only was the Department recognised in the last two UK assessments of research as being the best in the country; it was also named third in the world in the recent QS rankings.  Extending our existing strengths in Catholic Studies research, you will find our home next to Durham Cathedral an inspiringly beautiful place to work.  You may specialise in any areas of this broad field of enquiry, but we are particularly keen to hear from you if you are working in ethics/moral theology or the social scientific study of aspects of Catholicism.  Other areas that are under-represented in the Department include the history of modern Catholicism, Catholic spirituality, and the interface between Catholic thought and world religions. Whatever your interests, you will play a key role in both teaching and the development of further world-class research.
