Coptology Job, WWU-Münster

Coptologists often lurk around as New Testament professors or the like, since only a handful of institutions dedicate a position to the subject area.  Stephen Emmel, whose ground-breaking work has fostered reconstruction of the disbursed fragments of Shenoute of Atripe's (Wikipedia article) writings, will retire in one year, and the Uni is inviting applications for this professorship through 25 Aug 2018.
The successful candidate will have general research and teaching experience in Coptology and should be internationally outstanding in one of the following research subfields: philology, language and literature, cultural history, archaeology or art history.

Congratulations to Prof. Dr. Emmel for an outstanding career and our appreciation to the WWU for renewing this important Lehrstuhl!

  1. Coptic is such a rarely studied field. I know one of my seminary profs would do independent studies with students who wanted to learn it, but it was never a highly desired enough language for the seminary to offer it in the catalog.
