H.M. King Abdullah II Ibn Al Hussein of Jordan Fellowship for the Study of Love in Religion

Regent’s Park College welcomes applications for the H.M. King Abdullah II Ibn Al Hussein of Jordan Fellowship for the Study of Love in Religion. This appointment will be for a period of five and a half years preferably beginning from 1 September 2021. The post is situated at present within a wider project for the Study of Love in Religion at Regent’s Park College, a research programme of the Oxford Centre for Religion and Culture.

As a condition of the endowment, tenure of the Fellowship alternates between Christian scholars and Muslim scholars who satisfy the qualifications. The current holder of the Fellowship is a Christian scholar and so on this occasion the College will appoint a Muslim scholar who may be a specialist in any field of scholarship which permits them to research love in religion.

The post will include responsibilities for research and teaching in Oxford, and since the post-holder will be engaged in inter-faith relations and ministerial formation, applicants must have an active commitment to their faith tradition and have experience in relating to those of other faiths than their own.
