Applications are invited for the position of the Gresham
Professor of Divinity. Gresham College has been giving
free public lectures since 1597; these are both presented
in person in London and live-streamed to a global audience.
Gresham Professors are outstanding in their fields and
superb communicators, able to connect with an audience
whose members may not have specialist expertise in the
subject, but who will be informed people with a thirst for
increased knowledge and understanding.
The Professorship of Divinity is open to any discipline within
the field of theology and religious studies. It is not confined to
Christian theology and it is open to lay-people/academics as
well as religious ministers and clergy.
The appointment is part-time from 1 August 2022 and
normally for three years. Gresham Professors present a series
of six one-hour lectures each academic year. They also fully
participate in College life, attending the Academic Board,
being active in promotion and outreach, attending social
events and acting as ambassadors for the College. The post
offers excellent opportunities to widen public exposure.
We offer an annual stipend of £8,000 (plus reasonable
expenses) and welcome applications from all backgrounds
