The doctorate should not date back to more than four years.

The department welcomes the application of international early career researchers with an outstanding doctorate in Catholic theology, in a subject of systematic or practical theology, who have innovative research achievements or research projects of theological reflection in relation to significant contemporary phenomena of plural and globalized societies. A scientific profile that pays particular attention to the contemporary challenges for the form of theological theory is desired.

Applicants are expected to have adequate experiences in research-oriented teaching. The position includes teaching in the courses offered in the bachelor's, master's and teacher training programs.
