Ashley Moyse Appointed Post-Doctoral Fellow in Theology & Science
Regent College is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Ashley Moyse as Post-Doctoral Fellow in Theology and Science, effective from January 1, 2017 to July 31, 2019.
Regent College’s Academic Dean, Paul Spilsbury, welcomes the appointment, noting, “I am delighted that Dr. Moyse will be joining our faculty. He brings a wealth of expertise and a depth of insight that will greatly enrich the conversation about theology and science at Regent College.”
Dr. Moyse joins Regent College as part of a three-year initiative to advance conversations about the relationship of theology and science at the college and beyond, made possible by a generous grant from the John Templeton Foundation. Dr. Moyse’s responsibilities will include co-teaching Theology & Science (INDS/THEO 517) with Dr. Ross Hastings, overseeing student projects, publishing, planning public events in the area of theology and science, and developing online resources aimed at advancing public understanding and engagement with questions of faith and scientific inquiry.
Before completing his PhD in theology at the University of Newcastle, Dr. Moyse pursued graduate studies in physiology and bioethics. He thus brings extensive experience in the fields of science and medicine to his theological reflection and teaching. His research interests are diverse, ranging from bioethics and biopolitics, philosophy of technology, and theological engagement with popular culture, to expressions of Christian ethics from patristic to modern sources and the writings of Karl Barth and Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
Dr. Moyse has taught courses on physiology and ethics at Trinity Western University, ACTS Seminary, and University of the Fraser Valley, and has served as a Research Associate at Trinity College and the Vancouver School of Theology. He is the author of Reading Karl Barth, Interrupting Moral Technique, Transforming Biomedical Ethics (Palgrave Macmillan, 2015), and a co-editor of Correlating Sobornost: Conversations between Karl Barth and the Russian Orthodox Tradition (Fortress, 2016) as well as the forthcoming works Kenotic Ecclesiology: Select Writings of Donald M. MacKinnon (Fortress, 2016), Dispatches: Turning Points in Theology and Global Crises (Fortress, 2017), and Treating the Person: Jewish, Christian, and Muslim Perspectives on Medicine and the Body (under review).
Dr. Moyse currently lives in Surrey, British Columbia, with his wife, Aime.
