The Van Mildert Professor of Divinity is one of the oldest chairs at Durham University. The chair is named in honour of Bishop William Van Mildert, one of the founders of the University. The holder of the Van Mildert chair, which is jointly funded by the University and Durham Cathedral, is also a residentiary canon at the cathedral and member of its Chapter, thus one of the requirements of post holder is to be an Anglican priest or a minister in another church in communion with Church of England.

The current Van Mildert Professor of Divinity is Simon Oliver, who took up the appointment in 2015.
