Assistant Professor, Princeton Theological Seminary

Assistant Professor in Early Christian Studies

Princeton Theological Seminary

Application deadline: 1st October 2016

Princeton Theological Seminary invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Early Christian Studies. The research and publication specialization is open, but candidates must be outstanding scholars whose work in early Christianity’s theological, cultural and social aspects prepares them to teach an introductory survey course on early and medieval church history, the traditional history of doctrine, and varieties of early Christianity outside the Roman Empire. Review of applications begins October 1, 2016. Appointment begins July 1, 2017.

The successful candidate will be appointed at the rank of a tenure-track Assistant Professor and must be qualified to guide interdisciplinary research, supervise Ph.D. students, and serve as faculty in the Seminary’s Department of History and Ecumenics. As Princeton Theological Seminary is related to the Presbyterian Church (USA), faculty members are expected to work constructively within an ecumenical ethos informed by the Reformed Tradition. Women and candidates from underrepresented communities are especially encouraged to apply.

A letter of interest, curriculum vitae and three letters of reference should be uploaded to the online application site.

Those wishing to nominate others for this position are invited to contact James F. Kay, Dean of Academic Affairs, Princeton Theological Seminary, P.O. Box 821, Princeton, NJ 08542-0803, or electronically at
