The Faculty of Theology invites applications for a Ph.D. position in Ecotheology and Philosophy of Religion within the UiO:Nordic project The Ambivalence of Nordic Nature. Gift. Guilt. Grace. The project analyzes the current climate crisis from a multi-disciplinary approach, arguing that the crisis reveals an ambivalent relationship to nature within Nordic literature, philosophy and theology. A similar ambivalence has been discovered in biology and psychology, analyzing human relationships to their natural environment, torn between gift and guilt, dependence and shameless exploitation.
The successful candidate will conduct research on the relationship between cosmology and anthropology within the part of the project entitled Crisis and Creativity: Cosmology and Anthropology Reconsidered. The ability to conduct advanced research on topical issues in contemporary and classical systematic theology is required. The candidate is also expected to draw on perspectives from adjacent fields such as biology, life sciences, philosophy, psychology and literature.
