Washington University in St Louis: NT Position

Another NT position is now being advertised:

Washington University in St. Louis seeks an assistant professor of Ancient Mediterranean Religions/Early Christianity. This position, which will begin in August 2009, will be held jointly between the Department of Classics and the Program in Religious Studies.

While the precise area of research specialization is open, we would be most interested in a promising and productive scholar who is engaged in interdisciplinary study of Christian literature (canonical and extra-canonical), history, exegesis, or theology in the context of the religions of the ancient Mediterranean world.

Teaching duties will include courses in Greek and Latin at all levels, as well as courses in early Christianity and in Greco-Roman religions. The ability to teach an introductory course in the New Testament would be particularly welcome. The teaching load is two courses each semester.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. either in Classics or Religious Studies (in hand by time of appointment), a well-developed research agenda for the future, and experience in the classroom.

Please submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation, and a sample of scholarly writing to:

Ancient Mediterranean Religions Search,
Religious Studies Program,
Campus Box 1065,
Washington University in St. Louis,
One Brookings Drive,
St. Louis, MO 63130.

Consideration of applicants will begin on October 25, 2008 and continue until the position is filled; preliminary interviews will be held at the AAR meeting in Chicago in November and the APA/AIA meetings in Philadelphia in early January.

Washington University is an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer. Women, minority candidates and persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
