Lecturer in New Testament

An exciting opportunity has opened up at Carey Baptist College for the right person to step into the role of Lecturer in New 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. 

At Carey we believe that the God who we worship is at work in the world by the Spirit to renew people and places in Christ. Our calling as a college is to equip Christian leaders with the convictions, competencies, and capacity to participate in that mission, bringing gospel renewal in churches and communities across Aotearoa and around the 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 New Testament courses, teaching and supervising students in both our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. With a background in ministry or mission, they will demonstrate a capacity to integrate faith, context, and practice in both their research and teaching. With a doctoral level qualification (or the potential/commitment to achieve one within the first year of employment), they will produce high-quality research in service of God, the church, and the gospel. The successful applicant will contribute actively to the Carey community, as well as connecting widely with both church leaders and academic colleagues. 

This position is full-time, although we are willing to consider outstanding candidates who would prefer a part-time role.  

For further information please contact Dr John Tucker, Principal.
