His Highness Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani Professorship in Contemporary Islamic Studies

University of Oxford - Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies in association with St Antonys College

Location: Oxford
Salary: Professor (A20)
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent
Placed On: 23rd November 2022
Closes: 16th January 2023
Job Ref: 161849

The Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies and St Antony’s College intend to appoint to the His Highness Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani Professorship in Contemporary Islamic Studies with effect from 1 October 2023 or as soon as possible thereafter. This post is a statutory professorship, which is the most senior academic grade at Oxford. 

As the Sheikh Hamad Al Thani Professor you will provide academic leadership in promoting and sustaining research within the Faculty, and contribute to administrative roles in the Faculty. You will teach, examine, supervise and inspire students at all levels, playing a major role in the supervision and guidance of graduate students in the Arabic, Persian and Turkish subject group. The Sheikh Hamad Al Thani Professor will also hold a professorial fellowship at St Antony’s College and work with the Middle East Centre at St Antony’s to promote research and scholarship on contemporary Islam in the Middle East and in the world generally. 

You will be a scholar of the highest international calibre, with an outstanding record of research and publication, capable of creating and maintaining contacts with colleagues and relevant departments in Oxford and other universities in the UK and overseas. You may specialize in any aspect of contemporary Islamic Studies, broadly conceived, from the mid-19th century to the present day with a focus on the Middle East and North Africa. You will be expected to draw together aspects of the study of modern and contemporary Islam and modern and contemporary Islamic thought currently represented within the University, in order to contribute to what is a wide and increasingly interdisciplinary research field in Oxford. You should have attained a sufficiently high degree of expertise in the Arabic language to teach materials in that language. Research proficiency in an additional Middle Eastern and North African (MENA) language would be an advantage.
