Application Deadline: January 7, 2021

An interesting opportunity for a post-graduate student from our friends at the Faculty of Divinity in Cambridge – if you are interested or have any questions then please contact Esra Özyürek at the Faculty of Divinity.

Applications are invited for an AHRC CDA doctoral studentship offered by the Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership, to start in the October or January of the 2020-21 academic year. The studentship will be based in the Faculty of Divinity. The successful applicant, will work on a collaborative project co-led by Professor Esra Özyürek (, Faculty of Divinity and Sadiya Ahmed co-supervisor, Everyday Muslim Heritage and Archive Initiative.

The studentship will investigate how different generations of Muslims understand what it means to be a Muslim in the U.K.? Can we talk about a British Muslim experience? If so, at which generation does it start? What kinds of everyday religious expressions bind British Muslims with each other and make them different from non-British Muslims? What would the across the generations experiences of British Muslims tell us about the relationship between migration and localization when it comes to diverse religious communities coming together and forming a distinct minority?
