Fellow in Contemporary Muslim Societies in a Globalized World, Alwaleed Centre for the Study of Islam in the Contemporary World, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, UK. Deadline: 16 September, 2021.
The Alwaleed Centre for the Study of Islam in the Contemporary World at the University of Edinburgh is looking for an early career fellow to contribute to its growing research, teaching and outreach program on contemporary Muslim societies in a globalized world. The post-holder will conduct research into the contemporary social/political/religious dynamics of a key region, or regions, of the Muslim world. Priority will be given to applicants whose research focuses on regions not currently well covered by the Centre’s team (e.g. Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, Central Asia, East Asia, The Americas) or on supra-national processes. Applications from candidates whose work engages with broader transnational, international or global contexts would be particularly welcomed, as the post-holder will work with the Centre’s director to develop a research cluster on the globalized Muslim world. The post-holder will also be expected to contribute to the Alwaleed Centre’s teaching and outreach activities. The school welcomes applications for this post from all qualified candidates and particularly welcome applications from members of minority ethnic groups, who are currently under-represented in the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures.
