Make Sure You Can Fully Commit
All applicants must have a PhD or equivalent terminal degree (e.g., DMin, ThD) in a discipline that engages theological inquiry (e.g., theology, religion, Biblical studies, philosophy). Most applicants will hold tenure-track faculty positions, but we will accept applications from theologians in non-traditional settings as long as they are regularly engaged in theological scholarship. Criteria for proposal review will include the following: potential impact, fit with program aims, likelihood for successful collaboration with psychologists, creativity/novelty of work, and addresses the needs of an underserved population. All applications must be submitted in English and all payments will be made in US dollars.
