The SBL Student Board is looking for a new International Coordinator. The coordinator communicates with our International Representatives—Master's or doctoral students in biblical, late antique, and related studies—and encourages them to represent SBL on their campuses. The task also involves sharing resources and ideas with fellow representatives and working with the Student Advisory Board to ensure that the Society stays in touch with the needs of its student members and addresses those needs through its resources and activities.
