PhD in New Testament at St Mary’s—Chris Keith

For those of you who are considering pursuing a PhD, I want to take a moment of self-promotion here on the Jesus Blog.  In my capacity as Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at St Mary’s University College, Twickenham, I’m currently taking on new PhD students.  If you have a desire to pursue doctoral work, please get in touch with me at chris.keith@smuc.ac.uk.  We have an exciting Biblical Studies faculty with Philip Esler and me in New Testament and Dr. Katherine Southwood in Hebrew Bible/Old Testament.  At the end of this academic year, we will be launching the Centre for the Social-Scientific Study of the Bible.

St Mary’s is located in an ideal part of Southwest London, about twenty-five minutes from Central London and six miles from Heathrow Airport.  Although we encourage students to join us in residential study here on campus, there is also the possibility of studying in a non-residential format.  Students can come for an intense period of initial study, and then finish from their homes abroad.  And, let me throw this out there, too—if you could talk him into it, there’s even the possibility of Dr. Le Donne being your PhD co-supervisor!  So if anyone has some exciting ideas for a PhD in historical Jesus work and would want to work with us, let us know about it.
