The Testament of Job at Qumran?  I'm aware of Nicholls' 1982 dissertation 
on TJob.  Although I haven't yet had the opportunity to read it
myself I've come across other writers who have discussed/interacted with
his ideas about the testament.  His suggestions concerning
composition seemed interesting but I don't recall any mention of the
dissertation dealing with material from Qumran.  Did I miss something?
Could you elaborate further?
