Dr Hunt has served as Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Assistant Professor of Hebrew Bible and Jewish Studies at her alma mater, Vanderbilt Divinity School, since 2001. She sits on the Board of Directors of the American Academy of Religion, and on the Steering Committee of the Chief Academic Officers Society of the Association of Theological Schools. Her 2006 book Missing Priests: The Zadokites in Tradition and History, by all accounts an important contribution to the literature, may be previewed here, with reviews available here, here, and here.
Further details about Dr Hunt’s appointment may be read at the seminary’s Presidential Search Homepage. Congratulations to CTS in this felicitous choice, and to Dr Hunt on her new position, into which she will be installed this Fall.
