Departmental Lecturer in New Testament Studies
Grade 7: Salary £29,249 – £35,938 p.a.
The Faculty of Theology in the University of Oxford wishes to appoint
a Departmental Lecturer in New Testament Studies for a fixed-term of
two years (1 October 2012 – 30 September 2014).
The Lecturer will have a primary field of expertise in New Testament
Studies and be qualified to lecture and give tutorials on the
interpretation of Paul and the Gospels. Working closely with the other
New Testament colleagues, the successful candidate will teach for both
compulsory and optional papers in the undergraduate Theology and
Religion and Philosophy and Theology degrees, as well as for relevant
taught postgraduate degrees (MSt and MPhil). The appointee will be
expected to contribute to undergraduate examining for the Preliminary
and Final Honours examinations. Introductory and advanced teaching in
Greek is an important aspect of the faculty’s New Testament provision;
the appointed lecturer may be asked to take a role in the delivery of
that teaching.
The successful candidate will have already submitted a doctoral thesis
for examination no later than 24 May 2012; candidates should have a
research and publication record of a level appropriate to their career-
stage and clear plans for the production of research of distinction in
the future. Some experience of undergraduate teaching is desirable.
Candidates should be willing to participate in the administration of
the faculty.
This is an exciting opportunity to join the Faculty of Theology at a
time of promise and transition, and to contribute to the development
and delivery of its teaching and research. Further particulars, which
all candidates are asked to consult, and which include details of how
to apply, can be downloaded from the faculty website at Candidates may also
contact the faculty by email:
Applications must be submitted by email to the Faculty Administrator
no later than 12.00 noon on Thursday 24 May 2012. Candidates should
ask two referees to write independently to Mrs Frances Jenkins at by the same date.
Interviews will be held in Oxford on Friday 8 June 2012.
