The Winchester Centre of Religion, Reconciliation and Peace (CRRP) is a vibrant and rapidly developing research centre which examines the role faith-based organisations, religious leaders, and faith communities can play in national and community level peacebuilding and reconciliation processes. The Centre has a growing and diverse post-graduate community, including two MA programmes which have been developed in collaboration with St Ethelburga’s Centre for Reconciliation and Peace, London.  CCRP is looking for an exceptional candidate who can continue to grow our Master’s degree provision, whilst simultaneously developing our important relationship with St Ethelburga’s.

The successful candidate will be someone who has the enthusiasm and vision to embrace and develop this new role at the University.  This exciting opportunity will enable the post holder to enhance their learning and teaching skills, and broaden their experience of working with individuals from diverse contexts and backgrounds. Some element of research activity is also expected. They will report directly to the CRRP Director. Our ideal candidate would hold a PhD in a subject area related to Peace and Conflict Studies, and have experience of teaching at Master’s level; preferably with some knowledge of Distance Learning. Some experience of developing collaborations and practical peacebuilding work would also be an advantage.
