Centre for the Study of Muslim-Jewish Relations (CMJR), Cambridge

Visiting Fellowships

The Centre for the study of Muslim-Jewish Relations (CMJR), under the Woolf Institute of Abrahamic Faiths, invites applications for Visiting Research Fellows specializing in some aspect of the relationship between Judaism and Islam. The CMJR is dedicated to fostering relations between Muslims and Jews through teaching, research, and dialogue.

The two Fellowships, tenable for a two to three-month period, can be held in University of Cambridge term times either in the years 2009–10 or 2010–11. The successful candidates will be expected to undertake research in an area of relevance to the work of the Centre, and may be asked to make a modest contribution to its teaching. The Fellowship would be particularly suitable for someone with sabbatical leave from a university or similar position. Applications are not restricted. There is a modest stipend attached to the Fellowships, and Fellows will be entitled to free accommodation in Cambridge and travel from their country to Cambridge.

Further information about the Centre and its work can be found at

A letter of application should be accompanied by a curriculum vitae, two names of referees that may be approached, and a proposal for the research to be undertaken during the Fellowship. These should be addressed to Electors of the Visiting Fellowship, CJCR, Woolf Institute of Abrahamic Faiths, Wesley House, Jesus Lane, Cambridge, CB5 8BJ.

Please contact the Stone Ashdown Academic Director, Dr Dawud Bone (email with any questions. Applications may also be submitted by email to this address.

The deadline for early consideration is 30 November 2009, but applications will continue to be reviewed subsequently.
