We are growing our student numbers and graduate programs here at Houston Baptist University, so we have just posted an open rank position to begin in the Fall of 2015. Check out the full ad at HBU’s website, but here is the key information:
The successful candidate will have appropriate academic (PhD or terminal degree) and professional experience in a field related to one of the programs in the Department of Theology. The candidate will provide documentation of an excellent teaching record and evidence of scholarly interests and achievements. Candidates should have a strong research record. In addition, candidates may be considered for the role of Director of one of the graduate programs in the School of Christian Thought.
A few notes,
- We particularly are interested in deepening our faculty representation in Old Testament and/or Historical/Systematic Theology, though we are not limiting applications just to those areas.
- We will likely start an MDiv program in the fall of 2015. A distinctive aspect of the program is that it will be intentionally ministry focused, with internships throughout the program rather than just as an afterthought at the end of one’s coursework. If the candidate serves as the director of that program, s/he would coordinate the student interns and our relationship with partner churches.
- We have intentions to strengthen our academic offerings further, so the strong research record is important.
Do send in your application or pass the word along to those whom you think may be interested and qualified.
