He has held academic positions at a number of institutions including the University of Notre Dame (1985–91), Harvard University and the University of Chicago (1991–2000). He served as president of the Chicago Society of Biblical Research (1995–96), of the Catholic Biblical Association of America (1996–97), and of the Society of Biblical Literature (2002), and as regional president for the New England and Eastern Canada region of the Society of Biblical Literature (2008).
