The Department of Theology, Philosophy and Religious Studies at Liverpool Hope University is in urgent need of a Visiting Lecturer (hourly paid) to teach Jewish Studies to undergraduate students this academic year at the following levels: 

1. Level 4 – an introduction to Jewish traditions. This is usually a 5 week block with 3 lectures and 2 seminars per week on Thursday and Friday. Because of the timing of the Friday lecture and seminar, however, last year the lectures and seminars were stretched over 10 weeks so that everything was on a Thursday – to accommodate sha b bat. We would do the same this year if necessary.

2. Level 6 – Advanced Studies in Jewish traditions – a course of 8 one hour lectures, which will be on a Monday.

The Level 4 teaching will begin in January and the Level 6 teaching will start either in November or February depending on how soon someone can be recruited. 

The Department is looking for someone with a relevant PhD and preferably some teaching experience. 

If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact: Dr Elizabeth Harris;
