The School of Divinity at the University of Edinburgh intends to appoint three Chancellor’s Fellows in the coming months, ONE of which will be in RELIGIOUS STUDIES, with the aim of having the positions start in SEPTEMBER 2012.
These prestigious awards are aimed at early career scholar-teachers of the highest potential who have begun to establish a reputation for research at the forefront of their discipline and who have a commitment to teaching at the university level. The Fellowship will be held for 5 years, subject to satisfactory review at the end of year 3, and the Fellow will then move to a standard University academic open-ended contract.
The first year of the Fellowship will focus on establishing the Fellow`s research programme, with a limited amount of teaching. Fellows will be expected to submit an appropriate number of high quality research submissions to REF2014. Teaching and administration will gradually increase over the 5-year period to that of a normal academic load in the School of Divinity.
Normally a Fellow appointed from or shortly after their PhD will be appointed on the Grade 7 scale, whereas those with postdoctoral experience would normally be appointed at grade 8. Current Salary Scales are: Grade 7: £29,972 – £35,788; Grade 8: £36,862 – £44,016.
The School of Divinity expects to appoint a Chancellor’s Fellow in each of three Subject Areas – Christian Ethics and Practical Theology, World Christianity and RELIGIOUS STUDIES:
*RELIGIOUS STUDIES: any substantive field or tradition in the Study of Religions that can enhance and extend the existing subject area profile, including strong theoretical and methodological interests*
