Applications are invited for the following stipendiary and non-stipendiary Visiting Fellowships, tenable at the Centre from October 2019 to June 2020.
The Abdul Aziz Al-Mutawa and The Muhammad Bin-Ladin Visiting Fellowship
These two stipendiary Visiting Fellowships are awarded annually to support an extended period of independent study and research at Oxford.
The Imam Bukhari and The Imam Tirmizi Visiting Research Fellowship
These stipendiary Visiting Research Fellowships are open to citizens of countries in Asia or Africa and are intended to encourage interaction among academics from different traditions of learning.
Non-stipendiary Visiting Fellowships
The Centre welcomes applications for a limited number of non-stipendiary Visiting Fellowships and Visiting Research Fellowships.
• Two Visiting Fellowships are available to support research in any discipline within the arts, humanities and social sciences relevant to the study of Islam or Muslim societies, without restriction to any period or region.
• Post-doctoral or equivalent level academics may apply. However, these posts are normally taken by academics with an established record in their discipline. Applications are determined finally on the merits of the research proposal.
• These Fellowships carry a stipend of £5000, with membership of the Common Room, office space and access to the resources of the Centre.
Visiting Research Fellowships
• These are open to citizens of countries in Asia or Africa and are intended to encourage interaction among academics from different traditions of learning. Preference is given to those working in the field of classical Islamic sciences, but other fields in the humanities and social sciences will be considered.
• These Fellowships carry a stipend of £4000, with membership of the Common Room, office space and access to the resources of the Centre. The stipendiary awards are designed to supplement funding from other sources and may be held in conjunction with other research grants, stipends, or sabbatical salaries. Visiting Fellows are expected to devote their time to research and writing and to participate in the Centre’s academic activities.
