About Exeter and the South West
College of Social Sciences and International Studies
Combining world class research with very high levels of student satisfaction we are a member of the Russell Group and now have over 19,000 students. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) Exeter was ranked 16th nationally with 98% of its research rated as being of international quality.
This full time post is available 1st September 2016 in the College of Social Sciences and International Studies initially for a period of 2 years.
The Institute of Arabic and Islamic Studies has the strongest REF2014 results of any Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies department in the UK, establishing Exeter as the leader in the field in terms of research quality, impact and environment. Our international profile as a pioneering and multidisciplinary institute continues to grow.
In this role you will contribute to extending the research profile of the Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies in the College of Social Sciences and International Studies at Exeter, particularly in the area of Islamic Studies. This post is funded through the award of a major ERC research grant to Professor Rob Gleave and we would expect that the successful candidate would be supported in applying for external grant income so as to extend the life of this post beyond two years.
You will hold a PhD or equivalent in Islamic Studies, and have an independent, internationally-recognised research programme in an area related or complementary to existing Exeter strengths, with a preference for a specialism in Islamic legal studies. You will be involved in the on-going activities of the Centre for the Study of Islam, and other IAIS research centres as appropriate.
You must be able to demonstrate the following qualities and characteristics: an excellent teacher at undergraduate and (preferably) postgraduate level, a strong record in attracting research funding, or demonstrable potential to attract such funding, teamwork skills to work in collaboration with existing group members, an active and supportive approach to inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary research that will help to foster interactions and links both within the University and externally, the attitude and ability to engage in continuous professional development, the aptitude to develop familiarity with a variety of strategies to promote and assess learning and enthusiasm for delivering undergraduate programmes. Experience of fieldwork in the relevant regions and linguistic proficiency in Arabic and/or other relevant languages are highly desirable.
Informal enquiries can be made to Prof Robert Gleave (tel: 01392 264025), email: R.Gleave@exeter.ac.uk. You may also wish to consult our web site at (http://socialsciences.exeter.ac.uk/iais/) for further details of the College.
