Faculty Position in Christian and Classical Studies

Institution Name: 
Knox Theological Seminary
Start Date: 
July 1, 2018

Knox Theological Seminary invites applications for a full-time faculty position in Christian and Classical Studies (open rank), beginning July 2018. Ph.D. or its equivalent in a directly-related field is required. Ordination, ministry experience, prior seminary teaching, and familiarity with Christian schools and classical (Great Books) education are strongly preferred.

The successful candidate will be prepared to teach masters-level survey courses online and residentially that explore the intersections of the literary, historical, theological, and philosophical aspects of Christianity and the classical, Western tradition. Specific area of specialization is open, though this position requires significant background and competency in classical literature, historical theology, systematic theology, and biblical studies.

As the director of the MA in Christian and Classical Studies degree program, the successful candidate will play a central role in the assessment and revision of the curriculum. In addition to these and other related administrative duties, the anticipated residential teaching load is 6-7 courses per academic year, not including online teaching.

Knox is a seminary in the tradition of the Reformation that exists to educate men and women to declare and demonstrate the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As such, the successful candidate will agree to the Seminary’s statement of faith and join the faculty in representing a Reformed theological perspective that is firmly rooted in a covenantal reading of scripture, guided by the Westminster Confession of Faith, and is faithful to the Reformed heritage.

Knox Seminary educates students from around the world, providing them with the knowledge and skills needed to be ministry leaders in the Kingdom of God on Earth. Knox students come from diverse Christian traditions but are united both by their affirmation of the tenets of Christianity as found in the Apostle’s Creed and by their desire to grow in their knowledge of God for the purpose of serving Christ by proclaiming the Gospel to unbelievers and discipling those who already believe. Knox offers distance and residential courses to provide a cohesive educational experience to train students already actively engaged in a vocational or ministerial roles as well as those interested in full-time studies.
