Senior Lecturer and Director of the Professional Doctorate in Practical Theology – Anglia Ruskin University – Faculty of Arts, Law and Social Sciences

Senior Lecturer and Director of the Professional Doctorate in Practical Theology at Anglia Ruskin University

Anglia Ruskin is a vibrant workplace and our University is gaining prominence both nationally and internationally. We have ambitious plans for the future and we are determined that our students and staff will realise their full potential. Our main campuses in the cities of Cambridge, Chelmsford and Peterborough have been transformed with major capital investment. With an annual turnover of over £200m, we are a major force for higher education and one of the largest universities in the East of England.

This post is a joint appointment between Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) and the Cambridge Theological Federation (CTF). The employer is ARU.

The Cambridge Theological Federation (CTF) has been a partner of ARU since 1995.  The CTF is an ecumenical collaboration of educational institutes which teaches theology for ministry; reflect on the local and global, ecumenical and inter-faith context for Christian mission; foster encounters between people of different ecclesial and faith traditions; and undertake research in theology and religious studies. (http://www.theofed.cam.ac.uk)

The post-holder needs to be firmly embedded in, and committed to, both contexts, as a key element of the role is the bridging and mediating of relationships, regulations and procedures between Anglia Ruskin University and the CTF, and within Anglia Ruskin University between both the Faculty and the Doctoral School. The post-holder will sit on key committees within the CTF, the Faculty of ALSS and our wider University, as well as participating in the life of the Faculty at the Departmental level.

Directing the DProf programme involves the supervision of approximately 15 research students; the creative development of the taught component of the programme (2 level 7 modules introduced in 2017, which are offered both face to face and by distance learning); responsibility for a cohort of 10 students working through a link with the Divinity School of Chung Chi College in the Chinese University of Hong Kong including an annual visit to Hong Kong; the development of other international cohorts; responsibility for an international week in Cambridge during the summer for DProf students; involvement with the national practical theology professional doctorate summer school in which ARU/CTF DProf students participate.  The successful applicant will also contribute to teaching in PG research methods or sociology of religion.

In respect of DProf and other CTF/ARU students the responsibilities also include student recruitment, admissions, visa compliance, ethics approval and advice and progression monitoring, budget management, staff development and supervisor/examiner recruitment.

With a PhD/DProf in Theology or cognate discipline, you’ll be an experienced and culturally sensitive doctoral supervisor in practical theology with recent teaching experience in a higher education institution.  You’ll also be comfortable in working within the ethos of theological education in an ecumenical and interfaith context.

For an informal discussion, please contact Jane Leach, Principal, Wesley House Cambridge and President Emerita of the Cambridge Theological Federation: jl332@cam.ac.uk or Dr Alison Ainley, Head of Humanities, Law and Social Sciences, alison.ainley@anglia.ac.uk.
