The Council on Middle East Studies at Yale University is offering a one-year postdoctoral fellowship — with the possibility of renewal for a second year — that will begin on July 1, 2014. Candidates for the fellowship must have a Ph.D. in hand or must be close to finishing and must have received the degree no earlier than 2008. The Council seeks a specialist in Islamic theology and philosophy of the post-classical and pre-modern period (1100–1800 CE), particularly on the continuation of the falsafa tradition within kalam literature. The Postdoctoral Associate will work closely with appropriate
members of Yale’s faculty.
The Postdoctoral Associate will be expected to be in residence, to conduct research in Yale’s library, to participate actively in the intellectual life of the university, and to teach one course within the 2014–15 academic year. The annual salary will be $52,000 plus benefits. Candidates apply by sending a cover letter, CV, project proposal, names and addresses of three referees, and a draft proposal of the course to:
