Honorary Supervisors

All our PhD students are supervised by more than one person. From time to time we are looking for new volunteer co-supervisors for which we can pay expenses.

This is an opportunity to learn the craft of supervision alongside staff who have an average of more than 30 years experience. It is also a great way to find to enjoy being alongside someone as they push the boundaries of a new idea or research area.

Please get in touch if you have a PhD (Theology,. Biblical Studies, etc) and would like to apply to join the team.
