View All Vacancies

Are you an academic with proven abilities to carry out teaching in the areas of Theology and Religious Studies, with expertise in Religion, Gender and Global Development? Are you passionate about delivering an exceptional student experience in a research-intensive Russell Group university? Would you like to join and contribute to the vibrant academic community in the interdisciplinary School of Philosophy, Religion and History of Science?

As a Teaching Fellow, you will carry out teaching in the areas of Religion, Gender and Global Development. It is essential that you should also be able to contribute to the supervision of undergraduate final-year projects and to the personal tutoring of undergraduate students within the School.

You will be asked to lead a module called ‘Religions and Global Development’, which has a third-year undergraduate and an MA version, plus the second-year undergraduate module ‘Religion, Gender and Society’. Additionally, you will be asked to provide teaching assistance, in the form of guest lectures and seminar tuition, for other modules. At undergraduate level, these are likely to include ‘Religion, Politics and Society in the Modern World’, ‘Studying Religion in Context’, and ‘Religion and Media’; at MA level, they are likely to include ‘Religion, Politics and Society’ and ‘Religion, Gender and Sexuality’. You may also be asked to assist with the teaching of a first- or second-year module on the BA Liberal Arts programme or a broad-ranging foundation-year module called ‘Exploring the Arts and Humanities’.

Responsibilities will include preparing teaching materials, lecturing, leading seminars, assessment, and one-to-one supervision of undergraduate dissertations. You will participate in and contribute to activities coordinated by the Centre for Religion and Public Life, and you may be asked to take on a modest amount of administrative work.

You will have submitted your PhD thesis (or be very close to submitting it) in Religious Studies (or another demonstrably relevant area) and have relevant subject expertise and teaching experience.
