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 £4,000 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 2013 for nine months, though shorter periods
will be considered.
Applications should include a curriculum vitae and a brief statement
of proposed research. Two letters of recommendation should be sent
directly to the Centre.
