Applications for the academic year 2011-2012 are invited for Visiting
These are offered to support research in any area of the arts, humanities,
or the social sciences that has relevance to the study of Islam
or the Muslim world (particularly anthropology, economics, geography,
history, international relations, law, literature, philosophy, politics,
religion, and sociology).
Applications would normally be scholars or writers at the postdoctoral
or equivalent level, but senior researchers are also eligible. An
academic affiliation is not a necessary requirement.
Each Fellowship carries a stipend of £4000 and membership of the
Common Room. The stipend is intended as a supplementary award and
may be held in conjunction with other research grants, stipends,
or sabbatical salaries. Fellowships are tenable from 1 October 2011
for nine months, though shorter periods will be considered. Click
here for the poster.
Applications should include a curriculum vitae and a brief statement
of proposed research. Two letters of recommendation should be sent
directly to the Centre.
