The University of Oxford intends to appoint to the Andreas Idreos Professorship of Science and Religion from 1 January 2013 or as soon as possible thereafter. The successful candidate will hold a non-stipendiary fellowship at Harris Manchester College. The chair, which is based in the Faculty of Theology, was created by means of a benefaction from Dr Andreas Idreos. In making this donation, Dr Idreos had a particular concern for the relation of science to Christian Theology, and he was also interested in the relation of science to religion more widely. The professorship is an interdisciplinary chair devoted to research and teaching in (i) questions raised for Theology by the natural and human and social sciences (including moral and social questions), and (ii) the impact of Theology on the natural, human and social sciences. The post was held previously by John Brooke and, most recently, Peter Harrison.
