Research Associate Position

July 8th, 2016 by


Fuller Seminary invites applications for one research associate position in the Systematic Theology Department for academic year 2016-2017. (An additional position will be open for 2017-2018.) The associates will take positions of leadership in research of a major research initiative on “Prayer, Love, and Human Nature: Analytic Theology for Theological Formation,” funded by the John Templeton Foundation. The yearlong post will begin on, or shortly after, Sept 1, 2016, and will end on August 31, 2017.


About the Project:

Analytic Theology (AT) is an approach to theology that seeks integration between theological investigation, on the one hand, and the methods and results of progressive and truth-oriented disciplines such as the empirical sciences and analytic philosophy, on the other. This grant takes AT forward by focusing on three Big Questions as case studies to road test the value of analytic theology in a vocational context: prayer, divine love, and the theological implications and engagement of the sciences of human origins. The project hypothesizes that AT provides a rigorous intellectual framework for the training and formation of church leaders. This project will involve weekly seminars, visiting fellows, colloquia events, and a capstone conference, in addition to the research outputs listed below.
