The Department of Religion at Wellesley College seeks candidates for a two-year Elisabeth Luce Moore Post-doctoral Fellowship in Biblical Studies beginning in Fall 2020. We seek a Fellow with graduate training in Hebrew Bible or New Testament, including substantial competence in Greek and/or Hebrew and demonstrated ability to teach undergraduate courses, preferably in both textual corpora. The appointment, however, is not restricted to traditional textual, geographical, or chronological definitions of Biblical Studies. We encourage applicants from various disciplines such as Anthropology, History, and Religion Studies and specializations including Ancient and Late Antique Mediterranean Studies, Ancient Near East Studies, Archaeology and Material Culture of the Bible, the History of Biblical Interpretation, and Modern and Contemporary Approaches to the Study of the Bible. Wellesley College is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer, and we are committed to increasing the diversity of the college community and the curriculum. Candidates who believe they can contribute to that goal are encouraged to apply.
Wellesley is known for the excellence of its education, the beauty of its setting, its gifted faculty, and the uniqueness of its campus culture. But most of all, Wellesley is known for the thousands of accomplished, thoughtful women it has sent out into the world for over 100 years women who are committed to making a difference. Every year, some 2,400 of the world's top undergraduate women are challenged to exceed their own highest personal and intellectual expectations. The mastery Wellesley graduates demonstrate across the professional and vocational spectrum, and the influence they wield, whether in their own communities or on the world stage is testament to a singularly empowering undergraduate experience. Wellesley's lively academic community places a high value on rigorous, probing inquiry, and creative, cross-discipline thinking. Its collaborative approach to scholarship encourages students to question, debate, and refine their points of view, not only with each other, but with our world-class faculty, often by working directly with them on groundbreaking projects. A Wellesley education fosters the highest standard of readiness for the real world in its graduates, in terms... of ability to think, act, and contribute meaningfully and effectively in their chosen areas of interest.
