LECTURER IN RELIGIOUS STUDIES, THE OPEN UNIVERSITY
The Department of Religious Studies, The Open University, invites applications for a full-time lectureship, based in Milton Keynes. The Department is active in both teaching and research and has a particular focus on contemporary religion in historical perspective (i.e. largely nineteenth century and later).
The Department is genuinely open to making an appointment at any point in the Lecturer range, and will assess the standing and skills of candidates in the light of reasonable expectations for their stage of career.
The Lecturer must have the necessary skills and experience to make a substantial contribution to the in Religious Studies, using electronic tools such as Moodle and VLEs appropriate to The Open University context.
Our over-riding concern is to appoint a new colleague able to make a flexible and wide-ranging contribution to the work of the Department and the Arts Faculty, with a specialism outside of – but having potential for synergy with – existing departmental expertise. The Department neither assumes nor precludes personal religious commitment on the part of staff or students; it is not a Theology department.
