Job Opening: St. Mary's University, San Antonio

Assistant Professor of Biblical Studies (tenure track)

The Theology Department of St. Mary's University in San Antonio invites applications for a tenure-track position in Biblical Studies at the rank of assistant professor beginning August 2016. The successful candidate will demonstrate a robust academic research agenda and excellence in teaching that is grounded in the historical-critical methods and inclusive of traditional and contemporary theological methods of interpretation. The ordinary teaching load is twelve hours per semester, and includes courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Teaching competence should include the variety of methods of interpretation addressing the ancient historical contexts of the formation of biblical books through the ongoing interpretation of scripture in communities of faith. Area of specialization is open. The corpora of the New Testament are a primary need, but approaches reaching across traditional compartmentalization are also welcome. The ideal candidate will be able to teach a core introduction to theology which synthesizes the broader questions of faith seeking understanding from the perspective of the Catholic tradition of the Marianist founders of the university. Because the undergraduate core courses are required of students from diverse cultural and religious backgrounds, the successful candidate will demonstrate potential to create a learning environment that builds on diversity and respect for all. In addition to excellence in teaching and academic research, the department seeks candidates prepared to contribute in the "family spirit" of a Marianist university centered on faculty governance.
