Successful candidates will have a demonstrated record of outstanding teaching and proven research agenda and publications. Candidates must affirm the Baptist Statement of Faith and Message of 1963, including the preface and without added interpretation (see Samford Faculty Handbook section A5.1 for full information). Candidates must also be committed to promoting the study of biblical, theological, and religious studies as a central academic pursuit in the university and as valuable to the intellectual, vocational, and spiritual maturation of students.
