Closing Date: 31-Mar-2008
We wish to enhance our investment in New Testament research and teaching by appointing an exceptional scholar of international standing to the Kirby Laing Chair of New Testament Exegesis. Your role will involve providing intellectual and personal leadership for research and teaching activities e.g attracting high calibre postgraduate students, raising research income, strengthening the taught and research postgraduate programmes, and contributing to the department's undergraduate teaching. In addition, there is a major role to play in maintaining established links between New Testament studies and other biblical and theological fields within the School of Divinity, History and Philosophy.
You must demonstrate a distinguished record in research/publication, teaching and strategic management of a team. Analytical skills of the highest level, sound judgement and excellent communication skills are also essential.
We invite interested candidates to submit an initial application. Suitably qualified individuals will be invited to visit the University informally before any formal interview. We would hope to have completed interviews by April 2008, and that you would take up the appointment in September 2008.
