Assistant Professor in Politics and Islam
We are recruiting an outstanding candidate for an Assistant Professorship in Politics and Islam to join Durham University’s School of Government and International Affairs during a period of major expansion.
Ideal candidates will have an established or rapidly developing record of publications in leading journals and/or with highly regarded presses, and clear plans to develop their research over the next five years that will place them at the forefront of substantive debates in the contemporary interaction between Islam and Politics. We are open-minded in relation to substantive focus, emphasising the excellence of research above all.
The successful applicant will join a sizeable research group offering stimulating and supportive environment for developing and refining research projects and outputs, networking with colleagues within and beyond Durham, and providing pump-priming finance. The Institute for Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies provides a focus for our work in this field. All staff have access to excellent individual research support and Durham University’s wealth of research resources, as appropriate for a University that aims to be firmly within the world’s elite.
