N/A

Start Date: 
July or September, 2020 (see Job Description)

Evangelical Theological Seminary (ETS) is a graduate-level institution which aims to train men and women as pastors, missionaries, and Bible school teachers for the south Asian context. The seminary is located on a 30-acre campus about one hour outside of Bangalore, India. ETS has approximately 130 full time, residential students who come from India, Nepal, Burma, and the Middle East. The seminary offers both master’s (M.A. and M.Th.) and doctoral (D.Min. and Ph.D.) degrees as well as operating an online program for distance theological education. Please visit our website (https://www.ets-india.org/) for more information.

ETS is seeking an adjunct lecturer who can serve in a temporary capacity for up to one academic year. The lecturer should have completed a Ph.D. in Old Testament, New Testament, or theology. We are searching for a lecturer who is broadly evangelical (preferably dispensational) and who has a missional heart to use his training in the developing world.

The academic year at ETS is divided into three semesters: summer (July-August), fall (September-December), and spring (January-April). We are seeking a lecturer who would be able to join the seminary either in July, 2020, (for the beginning of summer semester) or in September, 2020, (for the beginning of fall semester) and commit to teaching through the academic year until graduation in mid-April, 2021.

The lecturer will be responsible for teaching one master’s level class in the summer semester and two master’s level classes in both the fall and spring semesters. Classes will be assigned depending on the lecturer’s area of specialization. The lecturer will also be involved in regular faculty duties, such as faculty meetings, chapel preaching, and discipleship groups. All of our students speak English as a second language, so there is no need to worry about a language barrier.

ETS will pay the cost of round trip airfare for the lecturer and his spouse (if he is married). The seminary will also provide living accommodations on campus. In addition, ETS will provide a stipend of $150 USD per month to the lecturer to help offset the cost of groceries and basic household supplies. Our campus is equipped with internet access and we have a research library so the lecturer can continue to pursue writing and publication projects. This adjunct position is an excellent opportunity for a young scholar to gain valuable teaching experience in a cross-cultural setting while also using his gifts to advance the kingdom of God in south Asia.
