1. St Andrews Fellows in Theology & Science

    Applications are invited for ten postdoctoral fellowships in science and religion/theology. The fellowships will run for two-years, beginning September 2017, and will be hosted in a Department of Theology/Religion at one of 18 participating universities from the US, UK, and Europe. Fellows will receive a competitive salary and a generous research and travel budget. They will conduct their own research on a topic of their choosing that fits the project research vision, teach one class in science and religion, and participate in a fully-funded series of workshops together with the other postdoctoral fellows, their mentors, and senior scholars in the field. Applications Due: December 9, 2016.

    Qualifications: Applicants must hold a PhD in theology (broadly conceived) or a science. Advanced degrees in both theology/religion and a science are preferable. The successful candidate will have potential for world-class research at the intersection of theology and science, a clearly-defined research agenda that is both ambitious and achievable, and excellent teaching skills. When selecting a host institution, candidates are encouraged to apply elsewhere from where they obtained their PhD.

  3. Senior Research Fellow / Research Fellow in Early Christianity

    The Australian Catholic University is seeking researchers of outstanding potential and demonstrated achievement to contribute to the research of the Centre for Biblical and Early Christian Studies. Researchers will be expected to contribute to a major five-year project, Modes of Knowing and the Ordering of Knowledge in Early Christianity. This international project, led by Prof. Lewis Ayres (ACU/Durham) and four others from ACU, Durham and Notre Dame, investigates ‘modes of knowing’ constructed by Greek, Latin and Syriac Christians c.100-700 CE. A particular focus is the manner in which developing Christian thought was shaped by classical intellectual discourses (such as grammar, philosophy, rhetoric and medicine), institutions, social practices, and material culture.

    This project builds on research across the Centre in areas such as the social and cultural history of early Christianity, the cultural and intellectual transformation of Classical antiquity, strategies of Christian identity formation, and intersections between Christianity and ancient philosophy, rhetoric, medicine, and education. For further information on the project and Centre, please see the Position Description.

  4. “The Fifth Century: Age of Transformation” Conference & Call for Papers

    The Society for Late Antiquity announces that the Twelfth Biennial Conference on Shifting Frontiers in Late Antiquity will be held at Yale University on the topic of “The Fifth Century: Age of Transformation,” on March 23-26, 2017. The conference will be cosponsored by the University of Groningen.

    In chronological terms there can be little doubt that the fifth century is the pivot point of Late Antiquity. It is arguable that it also represents the major watershed between a monolithic world still dominated by the Roman Empire in the third and fourth centuries and the more tessellated worlds of the sixth and seventh. Whereas the fourth century is still very much an age of continuity with the earlier empire, the fifth can rightfully be viewed as the moment when Mediterranean Eurasia and North Africa witnessed profound political, social, religious, economic and cultural transformations. Shifting Frontiers XII seeks to investigate the nature and impact of these changes.

  5. Research Fellowship Opportunity: 2017-2018 Shohet Scholars Grant Program

    The International Catacomb Society’s Shohet Scholars Program desires to support scholars of demonstrated promise and ability who are judged capable of producing significant, original research in the fields of archeology, art history, classical studies, history, comparative religions, or related subjects. The work need not focus explicitly on the Roman catacombs, but it should be within the sphere of the Mediterranean world from the late Hellenistic Period to the end of the Roman Empire. Of special interest are interdisciplinary projects that approach traditional topics from new perspectives.

    One or more Shohet Scholars will be selected each year and supported for a period of one year. Grants may be made to seed innovative approaches and new ideas or to cover specific expenses or phases of a larger project under the direction of the applicant. At this time, awards in the range of $2,000 to $30,000 will be made.
