In 2009 Jane moved to Wolfson College to take up the post of Senior Tutor, stepping down in 2018 to devote more time to teaching and research. Presently she is teaching New Testament at Westminster College. She co-ordinates first year Greek teaching for the Faculty of Divinity and also teaches on the second year Greek course.
