We are looking for people with a doctorate in Biblical Studies or Old Testament with emphasis on biblical Hebrew, and with a special interest in the application of modern linguistic principles in the study of this language. People who are currently enrolled in such a doctorate project will be considered as well.

In addition to this we welcome contributions from students in any of the disciplines mentioned above who want to do a lexicographic study of one or more Hebrew words for their thesis, as long as their work is supervised by someone who meets the requirements outlined in the previous paragraph.
