The Society of Biblical Literature has recently published a Jobs Report for Theological, Religious, and Biblical Studies based on 2011—2012 data. You can download it as a PDF file here.

A key finding is that the number of academic positions increased markedly from 2010 to 2011, and plateaued in 2012.

A typical new position is a full-time tenure-track appointment. However, the report indicates that non-tenure-track positions are probably under-reported.

Johanna Selles, Associate Professor of Christian Education at Emmanuel College, has been awarded the Davidson Trust Award for excellence in teaching and scholarship. This is awarded by a unit of the United Church of Canada to a faculty member at a theological college connected with the United Church.

TST expects to open a conjoint PhD degree program in Theological Studies to a class entering in September 2015.  “Conjoint” means that the proposed PhD (in Theological Studies) will be offered conjointly by the University of Toronto and six TST member colleges.  It will be administered by TST’s Graduate Centre for Theological Studies.
