Annonce poste — “Women’s Studies in Religion Program”
Research Associate and Visiting Faculty
Harvard Divinity School announces five full-time Research Associate and Visiting Faculty positions for 2013-14 in its Women’s Studies in Religion Program. Proposals for book-length research projects utilizing both religion and gender as central categories of analysis are welcomed. They may address women and religion in any time, place, or religious tradition, and may utilize disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches from across the fields of theology, the humanities, and the social sciences.
Research Associates are required to be in full-time residence at Harvard Divinity School while carrying out their proposed research projects during the 2013-14 academic year. Associates meet together regularly for collective discussion of research in progress. Each Associate teaches a one-semester course related to the research project, and the Associates present their research in a public lecture series.
Positions are open to candidates with doctorates in the fields of religion and to those with primary competence in other humanities, social science, and public policy fields who demonstrate a serious interest in religion and hold appropriate degrees in those fields. Selection criteria emphasize the quality of the applicant’s research prospectus, outlining objectives and methods; its fit with the Program’s research priorities; the significance of the contribution of the proposed research to the study of religion, gender, and to its field; and an agreement to produce a publishable piece of work. Applicants must have received their PhD by October 1, 2012. Applications from those whose degrees have not yet been awarded will not be considered.
