Contract work: literature review of work on the concept worldview
The RE Council is looking for a researcher to undertake a literature review on work engaging with the concept worldview. The literature review must include work within the disciplines of religious studies, theology, and religious education. In addition, it should acknowledge work on worldview in other disciplines where it is relevant to religious education.
The successful candidate will be working with guidance from Professors Trevor Cooling, Denise Cush, and Stephen Pattison, although it will be the successful candidate who is expected to produce the text of the literature review.
Applications are welcome from researchers who wish to undertake the whole review as well as those who would wish to share the work with another researcher.
The successful candidate(s) should have or be working towards a PhD or equivalent in a related field.
It is expected that the work will take place in March and April 2020.
The fee for delivery of the contract to the required high standard will be £8,000.
Expressions of interest outlining suitability for the project should be sent, along with a writing sample, to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on 7th February. Interviews will take place on 18th February (virtual interviews will be possible). Potential candidates who would like to discuss the work prior to making an application should feel free to contact Rudolf Eliott Lockhart on the email address above.
