Lecturer in New Testament
This post is full-time and fixed-term (1/10/18-30/9/20).
The role of a fixed term Lecturer at Durham provides the opportunity to deliver outstanding education and research within an inclusive and supportive environment that is staffed by world class colleagues. Lecturers will be supported to develop their academic careers by training and financial support in research and education, guided by a designated mentor.
The current post arises from the award of a Leverhulme Major Research Fellowship to Professor John for the period 2018-20. Applications are welcome from those with research expertise in any area of New Testament studies. Those who currently teach in the area include Professor Barclay, Professor Francis Watson, Dr Jan Dochhorn and Dr Jane Heath, while many other staff in the Department have cross-disciplinary research interests that relate to the New Testament. It is not anticipated that this period would be extended beyond the initial fixed term.
There is a weekly research seminar in New Testament, at which papers are presented by leading scholars from the UK and abroad as well as by members of staff and research postgraduates.
The successful applicant will be expected to teach modules in New Testament at undergraduate and taught postgraduate levels, to participate in postgraduate research supervision at an appropriate level, to undertake outstanding research leading to publications of international significance, and to play a full part in the life of the department.
