The University of Oslo and The Faculty of Theology has a vacancy for a full-time Associate Professor with a particular obligation to engage in research, teach and supervise in the field of religion and society/interreligious studies. Thematically, methodologically and theoretically, this field is still under development. It involves broad interdisciplinary collaboration between the faculty’s own teaching staff and colleagues from other relevant areas at the university. Several PhD candidates work in the field. In addition to forming the basis for the Religion and Society study programme and for the continuing education programme in interreligious studies, the field also has an important role in the university’s inter-faculty research network, PluRel (Religion in Pluralistic Societies).
