The Greek New Testament

  • Awaiting Funding Decision/Possible External Funding
    Awaiting Funding Decision/Possible External Funding

Profile Description

Applications are welcome at any time in the year for students with excellent ability in Greek and an interest in the New Testament to pursue doctoral study at the University of Birmingham.

The Institute for Textual Scholarship and Electronic Editing (ITSEE) is a specialist unit in the School of Philosophy, Theology and Religion, creating and using digital tools to produce state of the art editions of the New Testament in Latin and Greek. Doctoral students work alongside members of the project team on a topic related to the overall editorial goals, such as investigating the biblical quotations of an early Christian author or writing, examining the biblical text and its presentation in early manuscripts, or looking into early commentaries.

Examples of projects currently in progress can be seen at http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/research/activity/itsee/staff/index.aspx

Prospective students should contact Dr Houghton giving details of their interests and experience. Alternatively, applications may be made directly online using the link below.

Funding Notes

From 2018 onwards, we have funding available for doctoral students to earn up to £6,000 per year making transcriptions of Greek New Testament manuscripts which will offset the cost of their studies or living expenses. Students must demonstrate competence before they are engaged for this work.

Funding Notes

This programme is waiting to hear about funding for the next session, or external funding will be applied for once a suitable candidate is selected. Applications are welcome - please see programme details for further information.
