Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies Visiting Fellowships 2018
About The Event
Application Deadline: January 19, 2018
Disciplines: Culture, Islamic Studies, Religious Studies, Sociology
The Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies (OCIS) has developed an international network of personal and institutional contacts to enable liaison, dialogue and exchange between the Islamic and Western worlds of learning. Protocols of academic cooperation exist between the Center and many institutions worldwide, facilitating the exchange of scholars and researchers. The Center’s program of Visiting Fellowships and Scholarships plays a key role in these international activities. Since its inception in 1987 the program has brought to Oxford scholars and students from more than forty countries in Asia, Africa, the Americas and Europe.
An expanding program of Visiting Fellowships and Scholarships enables the Center to bring to Oxford scholars from around the world with academic interests in the Islamic world.
– Distinguished Fellowships are awarded periodically by invitation.
– Research Fellowships: From time to time, the Center advertises other Research Fellowships. They are awarded in support of those who wish to pursue independent full-time study and research.
Visiting Fellowships are awarded annually to enable scholars or writers to spend an extended period of independent study and research at Oxford. The following Fellowships are established at the Center:
- Abdul Aziz Al-Mutawa Visiting Fellowship
- Muhammad Bin-Ladin Visiting Fellowship
These are offered to support research in any area of the arts, humanities, or the social sciences that has relevance to the study of Islam or the Muslim world (particularly anthropology, economics, geography, history, international relations, law, literature, philosophy, politics, religion, and sociology).
Applicants will normally be mid career or senior academics. An academic affiliation is not a necessary requirement.
Each Fellowship carries a grant of £5,000 and membership of the Common Room. The grant is intended as a supplementary award and may be held in conjunction with other research grants, stipends, or sabbatical salaries. Fellowships are tenable from 1 October for an academic year, though shorter periods will be considered.
Applications should include a curriculum vitae and one-page statement of proposed research. Two letters of recommendation should be sent directly to the Center.
