Pontifical College Josephinum

Assistant Professor of Sacred Scripture

The Pontifical College Josephinum, founded in 1888 and located on a beautiful campus north of downtown Columbus, Ohio, has a College of Liberal Arts and a School of Theology. The College of Liberal Arts offers undergraduate degrees in philosophy and humanities as well as a two-year pre-theology program offering a certificate or a bachelor of philosophy degree. The School of Theology offers a Master of Divinity (MDiv) and a pre-doctoral Master of Arts in Theology (MA), as well as a Bachelor of Sacred Theology degree (STB) through affiliation with the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum).  

For many decades, the Josephinum, which is overseen by the Apostolic Nuncio to the United States, who serves as Chancellor, and ultimately by the Congregation for the Clergy in Rome, has offered programs recognized for their academic excellence and conformity to the standards of priestly formation promulgated by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and approved by the Holy See.

The Josephinum is seeking to hire an Assistant Professor of Sacred Scripture in the School of Theology beginning in the Spring of 2023.  For the successful candidate, a completed doctorate in Sacred Scripture (Ph.D. or SSD) is desirable. 

The ideal candidate would be able to teach courses in both Old and New Testament in the Master of Divinity program. The candidate would also have the opportunity to teach electives at the graduate level of his/her choice and expertise, and to direct theses for the MA and STB degrees. The appointment will be to the faculty of the School of Theology, though occasional teaching in the College of Liberal Arts may be required.

The expected teaching load will be six (6) courses annually. If the successful candidate is a priest, depending on other responsibilities assigned by the rector for spiritual direction or formation in the external forum, this teaching load may be reduced.  The successful candidate will also have the opportunity to participate in the overall formation program through membership on various committees according to his/her interests and the needs of the seminary.

Please respond via email with a curriculum vitae listing three references from whom letters of recommendation may be obtained, graduate transcripts, student and peer evaluations of two classes, and a letter of interest to:

Cathi Ebling, Administrative Assistant to the Academic Dean
