The Department of Theology and Religious Studies at King’s College London is seeking to appoint a Lecturer in Modern Islam starting on 1 September 2022. The post is open to candidates with expertise in Islam in the modern and contemporary world, whether in relation to theological, philosophical, sociological, anthropological, legal and/or political debates and dimensions. Applicants should have a good command of Arabic and/or another language relevant to Muslim majority contexts. The successful applicant will teach a range of modules on modern and contemporary Islam at BA and MA levels and should be willing to supervise PhD students. Different disciplinary backgrounds are welcome, but candidates must be able to teach and research within the context of a department specialising in the integrated, postcolonial study of theology and religious studies.


We welcome applications from black and minority ethnic candidates, and from members of groups that have been marginalized on any grounds enumerated under the Equality Act, including religion. Applicants who directly engage with communities of practice, including Muslim Higher Education Institutes, are welcome.
