PhD Studentships in Islamic Studies: Islamic Civilization or Muslims in Europe


About The Event

Call for Applications

The Alwaleed Centre, University of Edinburgh

Application Deadline: April 12, 2018

The Alwaleed Centre for the Study of Islam in the Contemporary World at the University of Edinburgh is now offering two PhD studentships, for research on either Islamic Civilization or Muslims in Europe, for a September 2018 start. Research on either historical or contemporary aspects of Islamic Civilisation or Muslims in Europe would be welcome.

These are fixed, three-year, full-time studentships, ideal for students who have recently completed a Master’s degree in a relevant discipline (e.g. history, Middle Eastern languages, Islamic Studies, Religious Studies, sociology, anthropology).

The successful candidates will be expected to be Edinburgh-based and, in addition to undertaking research, would be encouraged to contribute to the Centre’s Outreach Program.

The successful candidates will have desk space within the Alwaleed Centre alongside fellow PhD students, Post-Doctoral Fellows and the Centre’s administrative team.  There may also be opportunities to contribute to teaching within the University.

The HRH Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Centre for the Study of Islam in the Contemporary World is an endowed Centre within the University of Edinburgh’s Department of Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies. Established in 2010, the Centre is devoted to research, outreach, and knowledge transfer in the field of Islamic Studies and is part of a unique network of six academic Centres established by the HRH Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Foundation: two in the United States (the universities of Harvard and Georgetown), two in the United Kingdom (the universities of Edinburgh and Cambridge), and two in the Middle East (the American University of Beirut and the American University in Cairo). All six Centres are devoted to the improvement of mutual understanding between the Muslim World and the West. The Edinburgh Alwaleed Centre’s current Director is Professor Jaakko Hameen-Anttila.
