Two-year Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Faculty of Oriental Studies (Modern Middle Eastern Studies)

The Faculty Board of Oriental Studies seek to appoint a Mellon Fellow in Arabic and Middle Eastern Studies for two years from 1 October 2004. The purpose of the appointment is both to provide an opportunity for a scholar at the start of their academic career to gain experience, and to enable the University to benefit from their contribution to the future development of courses on the modern Middle East, both within the Faculty of Oriental Studies and in collaboration with other Departments of the University.

The Fellow will undertake both teaching and research, and will be expected to teach for about six hours a week. The teaching would include Arabic language courses within the existing programmes of the Faculty of Oriental Studies, and some aspect of modern Middle Eastern Studies for the benefit of students both in Oriental Studies and in other University Departments with teaching programmes bearing on the Middle East.

Applicants should already have received a doctorate in the field, but should not be more than five years past their Ph.D. thesis submission date. The salary will be at an appropriate point on a scale ranging from £22,954 to £24,951.

Applications, including an application form, a curriculum vitae, and the names and addresses of two referees, should be sent to Mrs Jane Fisher-Hunt, Secretary to the Selection Committee, Faculty of Oriental Studies, Sidgwick Avenue, Cambridge, CB3 9DA (tel. 01223 335107), so as to reach her by 18 June.
