The following announcement came through the British New Testament Society.
DOMINICAN BIBLICAL INSTITUTE, a research center affiliated with the University of Limerick, Ireland, invites applications for a sabbatical fellowship program from scholars with expertise in Biblical Studies.
Fellowships will normally last for an academic semester, but full-year appointments will be considered. The program is contingent on funding, but the Institute hopes to select two to four fellows per year.
Scholars who will be on sabbatical in the next few years are encouraged to inquire about the program. Duties include teaching one graduate seminar or undergraduate course and serving as a resource for Ph.D. students. Recipients will also be expected to engage in a program of research and to share their research with others at the Institute.
Preference will be given to scholars whose research interests
(a) extend beyond the traditional boundaries ofbiblical scholarship, and
(b) complement the expertise of the director of the Institute (early Christian uses of Scripture).
The fellowship carries a stipend of 4000 euro ($5600) plus travel expenses and the use of a shared apartment near the Institute.
Applications are due by December 1, and should include a letter of interest, CV, three letters of reference regarding the applicant's scholarly work, and a description of the planned research program.
Applications should be submitted to
Dr. Thomas Brodie,
Dominican Biblical Institute,
Upper Cecil Street,
