Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary seeks a creative colleague who enjoys teaching a range of biblical courses including Hebrew, Old Testament survey, and Old Testament exegesis, as well as biblical electives. Candidates for this tenure-track position must have a heart for teaching, a strong and critical love for the Church, and a passion for helping to form the next generation of pastoral leaders. Applications are particularly encouraged from women and persons of color.

Louisville Seminary has been serving the Reformed tradition for more than 160 years, and we are committed to continuing that relationship: candidates must be able to move comfortably within this context and guide students preparing to minister in churches of the Reformed tradition. At the same time, Louisville Seminary is an increasingly diverse ecumenical community embracing many traditions. We are committed to growing as a multicultural and anti-racist place of learning and living and to deepening ecumenical and inter-religious learning.

The Professor of Old Testament will teach students in our Master of Divinity, Master of Arts in Religion, Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy, and Doctor of Ministry degree programs. In addition, they will have opportunities to participate in the Black Church Studies program.

A Ph.D. or Th.D. in Old Testament/Hebrew Bible is required. We anticipate making this appointment at the assistant or associate professor level beginning in September 2018. Faculty rank will be determined on the basis of experience.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. All applications must be received by September 30, 2017.

An application must include:
1. a letter of application,
2. your curriculum vitae,
3. a tentative syllabus for a course you could offer in Old Testament,
4. three letters of reference.
