Biography

Dr Jaeger hold a permanent lectureship and is academic dean at Nogent Bible Institute (IBN) in Nogent-sur-Marne, an interdenominational evangelical Bible college situated near Paris which trains pastors and other Church workers at an undergraduate level, and lay people in extension programs.

After completing postgraduate studies in physics and mathematics — including research in theoretical solid state physics — at the University of Cologne (Germany) and in theology at the Evangelical Theological Seminary (FLTE) in Vaux-sur-Seine (France), Lydia Jaeger obtained her Ph.D. in philosophy at the Sorbonne on the possible links between the concept of law of nature and religious presuppositions, under the supervision of Michel Bitbol (CNRS, France).

Since 2000, Lydia Jaeger has had several short study leaves in the Department of History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Cambridge (Great Britain), where she is also an associate member of St. Edmund’s College and of the Faraday Institute for Science and Religion. From 2005 to 2010, she held a research professorship in philosophy of science and contemporary thought, jointly based at the Evangelical Theological Seminary (FLTE) in Vaux-sur-Seine and the Institut Biblique de Nogent-sur-Marne. Since 2012 she has been coordinating a joint project with the French branch of IFES (GBU) to develop evangelical science-faith resources for the francophone world. Her current research interests are natural order, the epistemological and ethical implications of the doctrine of creation, the theology of science and our understanding of human persons in the light of evolutionary biology, neuroscience and philosophy.

She is a member of the American Scientific Affiliation (ASA), Christians in Science (CiS), the Fellowship of European Evangelical Theologians (FEET), the International Society for Science and Religion (ISSR) and the Tyndale Fellowship; she is a founding member of the Société de Philosophie des Sciences, the Réseau des Scientifiques Evangéliques and the Réseau Evangéliques et Sciences Humaines.
