(Senior) Research Fellow - Medieval or Early Modern Studies, Australian Catholic University lead image

The Australian Catholic University seeks scholars of outstanding potential and demonstrated achievement with expertise in medieval and early modern studies broadly conceived, to join and help to develop a new research team within ACU’s Institute for Religion and Critical Inquiry (IRCI).

Successful applicants will join a vibrant research environment and work collegially and collaboratively to build their own research profile of high-quality publications, and contribute to team projects within their areas of specialisation and across traditional disciplinary boundaries.

Research Fellows and Senior Research Fellows have a primary focus on research, but some teaching, especially of graduate students, may be part of the role.

The IRCI is a research Institute which promotes collaborative research on religion and critical thought from multiple disciplinary perspectives, including philosophy, theology, history, and literature. It explores the inter-relationships between philosophy, religion and their cultural contexts, and contributes to contemporary theological, philosophical, social, and political debates. We now seek to add a program in Medieval and Early Modern Studies to established research in Biblical and Early Christian Studies, Philosophy, and Religion and Theology, building on current expertise in this period across theology, philosophy, history, and literature. In addition to these roles, we are also seeking a senior academic leader for the team. The Institute has established research partnerships with leading global universities, and presents a series of research seminars each year at ACU’s Rome Campus.
