THE KHALILI RESEARCH CENTRE FOR THE ART AND MATERIAL CULTURE OF THE MIDDLE EAST

Faculty of Oriental Studies, University of Oxford

I.M. PEI GRADUATE SCHOLARSHIP IN ISLAMIC ART AND ARCHITECTURE

Further Particulars

The Khalili Research Centre is offering a fully-funded graduate scholarship in the Faculty of Oriental Studies at the University of Oxford from the beginning of the academic year 2019. 

Preference will be given to DPhil candidates who already hold a Masters qualification in a suitable field, but the Scholarship may also be available to graduates who will be required to complete the MSt in Islamic Art and Archaeology (or the MSt in Oriental Studies) or the MPhil in Islamic Art and Archaeology as the first stage in their doctoral training.

The Scholarship is intended to cover the full costs of a postgraduate student pursuing research to doctoral level in any subject in the history of Islamic art and architecture before 1900 C.E., or in Islamic archaeology and material culture, that current staff in the Faculty of Oriental Studies are able to supervise. Preference may be given to applicants with an interest in art and architecture, calligraphy, or the arts of the Arabic book, in the early and middle Islamic periods before circa 1200 C.E.. Applicants are encouraged to visit the staff page of the Khalili Research Centre website to acquaint themselves with the staff and their research interests, and to contact the member of staff with interests closest to their proposed research before 15 December 2018.

The Scholarship will cover the course fees and maintenance costs equivalent to the U.K. national minimum doctoral stipend.

The award is tenable for one year in the first instance, renewable for further periods subject to the following conditions.

  • A scholar who is admitted as a probationer research student to pursue doctoral research may have the award renewed for up to a maximum of three further years, subject to receipt of satisfactory termly reports from the supervisor and to satisfactory and timely progress through the transfer and confirmation of status.
  • A candidate who is admitted to the MSt in Islamic Art and Archaeology (or to the MSt in Oriental Studies), who attains a distinction in the final examination, or otherwise provides evidence of exceptional potential, may have the award renewed for a further period of up to three years, subject to receipt of satisfactory termly reports from the supervisor and to satisfactory and timely progress through transfer and confirmation of status.
  • A candidate who is admitted to the MPhil in Islamic Art and Archaeology, who passes the Qualifying Examination at the end of Year 1, may have the award renewed for a second year. Should he or she attain a distinction in the final examination at the end of Year 2, or otherwise provide evidence of exceptional potential, the award may be renewed for a further period of up to two years, subject to receipt of satisfactory termly reports from the supervisor and to satisfactory and timely progress through transfer and confirmation of status.
  • The award must be held in the Faculty of Oriental Studies. Candidates are urged to apply to one of the two colleges of which teaching staff of the Khalili Research Centre are fellows: St Cross College and Wolfson College.

All applications will be considered on their merits by a panel of representatives of the Faculty of Oriental Studies and of the Management Committee of the Khalili Research Centre.

Applicants, whether internal or external, should apply to the University under the standard procedures for graduate degrees for 2019-20.
