The Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies, a Recognised Independent Centre of the University
of Oxford, is engaged in the multi-disciplinary study of the Muslim world.
The Centre invites applications for a senior research fellowship in the study of the Islamic
world. The successful candidate will be engaged in research and publication in any area of the
arts, humanities or social sciences which contributes to a more informed understanding of the
Islamic world – its history, economics, politics, culture, civilisation and contemporary life.
This fellowship offers excellent opportunities for sustained research, to work with world-class
colleagues, and an intellectually stimulating research environment, drawing on the Centre’s
extensive academic links both within Oxford and internationally. The fellowship is tenable
from October 2019.
The successful candidate will be expected to play a full part in the academic and social life of
the Centre and will undertake research and develop academic projects as part of a multidisciplinary team. They will be a full member of the Centre’s Common Room. The holder of the Senior Fellowship may also be asked to take on an appropriately senior role in the oversight of the Centre’s wider academic programmes and activities.
The Senior Fellowship is initially tenable for a three year renewable period, and may be
extended by mutual agreement, offering a competitive salary determined by qualifications and
experience in the range of £39,000 to £53,000.
