Job Description

Wycliffe College invites applications for a full-time faculty position in New Testament Studies to begin August 15, 2019. Wycliffe is a graduate school of Theology in the evangelical and Anglican tradition, working within the Toronto School of Theology and granting degrees conjointly with the University of Toronto. Our college is committed to the study of Scripture as the foundation for Christian faith and practice, and in its recently adopted Strategic Plan, Wycliffe has committed itself to making the theological interpretation of Scripture a priority for teaching and scholarship. Applicants for this position should have a deep affinity with Wycliffe's mission, vision, and commitments, and must be able to subscribe to the College's Six Principles (see https://www.wycliffecollege.ca/about-us/mission-values).

The successful candidate will be a mid-career or senior scholar with a relevant PhD or ThD, and a strong track record of graduate teaching and publication. They should exhibit a breadth of competency in the New Testament, including its relation to Scripture as a whole and to Christian Theology. They will have the ability and willingness to teach New Testament courses across the curriculum, in both on-campus and online modes, and supervise theses at the doctoral level. Responsibilities include teaching five courses per year. They will be expected to participate in the wider community life of the College and Chapel.

Wycliffe College is committed to employment equity and offers equal opportunities to qualified women and men, including visible minorities and persons with disabilities. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, in keeping with Canadian law, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority. Final appointment is subject to receipt of official transcripts and completion of a satisfactory criminal record check.
