Faculty Positions in Biblical Studies and Pastoral Theology
Atlantic School of Theology
Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

Atlantic School of Theology in Halifax, Nova Scotia, intends to hire two new tenure-track faculty members at the Assistant or Associate Professor level, to commence in summer 2021 (date negotiable). One of the positions is in Biblical Studies, the other in Pastoral Theology. To fulfill statutory requirements, one (1.0 FTE) of the two appointments must be filled by a Roman Catholic.

In addition, to allow some flexibility around local needs for institutional fit and global demands related to the pandemic, each position may be filled by either one full-time appointment, or two half-time appointments. All finalists will be expected to come to Halifax for on-campus interviews, public health requirements permitting; however, only full-time appointments would be expected to relocate to Halifax. Half-time appointments could be remote positions.

Applicants to the position in Biblical Studies should specialize in New Testament or Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, and should have a strong secondary competence and ability to teach in at least one other relevant theological discipline.
