How did Presbyterians Respond to the Troubles? Apply for a 6-Month Post-Doc Post with the Presbyterian Church (based at Queen’s) and me

I am really excited to be the principal researcher on a new project, ‘Reconciliation through Dealing with the Past: Learning from Presbyterian Responses to the Troubles.’

We are now advertising for a post-doctoral research fellow to assist with interviewing around 100 Presbyterians, who will tell their stories about their experiences of the Troubles. Interviews will identify what people think the Presbyterian community did well as faithful peacemakers; and explore the lost opportunities to contribute to peace.

The project was developed in collaboration with the Council for Public Affairs of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland (PCI). It is funded by the Republic of Ireland’s Department of Foreign Affairs and supported by the Senator George J Mitchell Institute for Global Peace, Security and Justice at Queen’s University.

The deadline for applications is 14 April, with interviews anticipated on 2 May. The particulars of the post can be found here.
