Applications are invited for the above post which arises as a result of Professor Richard Bell being awarded a Leverhulme Trust Major Research Fellowship for a three year period from 1 September 2017.
The successful candidate will be responsible for teaching and research in the area of New Testament Studies. The duties will include teaching and assessment at all levels from first year to postgraduate students.
