About Providence, Divine Action and the Church


In this blog, Terry J. Wright posts thoughts and shares research on the Christian doctrine of providence. This doctrine testifies to God’s provision for all things through creation’s high priest, the man Christ Jesus. However, the precise meaning and manner of this provision is a perpetually open question, and this blog is a forum for discussion of the many issues relating to providence and the place of the Church within God’s action.

Applicants must have appropriate academic qualifications in Christian theology, including a PhD, and primary expertise in the field of Systematic Theology.

You will have a strong record of research publications, and the capacity to make an immediate contribution to the established research excellence of the School, as well as a clear programme of anticipated research activity over the coming years.

However, you must also have demonstrable expertise in dogmatics, and be interested in the exploration of constructive theology in a contemporary context. You will contribute to the School’s programmes in these areas at both undergraduate and taught postgraduate levels, and supervise research students.
