Gresham Professor of Divinity


London and Home Counties

Ref: JN009481

Job Description

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

and communities.
