An exciting opportunity has opened up at Carey Baptist College for the right person to step into the role of Lecturer in Old Testament. Carey is one of Aotearoa New Zealand’s leading providers of theological education. According to the Tertiary Education Commission’s 2019 assessment of research performance within the tertiary sector, in the AQS (S) ranking (which measures the intensity of research relative to staffing numbers), Carey Baptist College is the highest ranked non-university in New Zealand. We offer programmes at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

Our calling at Carey is to equip Christians to think, live, lead, and serve in ways that will advance God’s mission in this world. We specialise in preparing men and women for pastoral and mission leadership, but we provide a range of training pathways for anyone wanting to grow in their faith and participate more fully in God’s work of renewing this world. 

The successful candidate will develop and facilitate a portfolio of Old Testament courses, teaching and supervising students in both our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. With a doctoral level qualification (or the potential/commitment to achieve one within the first period of employment), they will produce high-quality research. They will contribute actively to the Carey community, as well as connecting with churches and colleagues in their academic discipline. The successful candidate will demonstrate a capacity to integrate faith, context, and practice in both their research and teaching.

This position is full-time, although we are willing to consider outstanding candidates who would prefer a part-time role. The successful candidate, if full-time, will be expected to teach at least one course outside of Old Testament.

If you believe you have the knowledge, skills and experience, and support the values and mission of Carey Baptist College we would encourage you to express your interest in the role. Please send a CV with a covering letter addressing these criteria to [email protected] before 14 February 2020.
