Research Associate: “Religion, Identity and Migration in the Global Middle East, 1850-1940”

Faculty of History, George Street, Oxford OX1 2RL

Applications are invited for the position of Research Associate (2 x posts) on the ERC-funded project ‘Moving Stories: Sectarianisms in the Global Middle East' at the University of Oxford, Faculty of History, George Street, OX1 2RL. Reporting to the Principal Investigator, Professor John-Paul-Ghobrial, the post holder will be a member of a research project based at Oxford, and they will work independently to carry out research for a discrete area of the project related to ‘Religion, Identity, and Migration in the Global Middle East, 1850-1940'.

The Role

Middle Eastern migration was a phenomenon with global horizons, but it was also a reality that was experienced locally in different ways at the level of individual lives. This role provides early career researchers with an opportunity to conduct and publish groundbreaking research as part of a larger research team based at Oxford.

The responsibilities of the Research Associate fall under three main areas:

1. In consultation with the PI, the Research Associate will devise a feasible, specific project that will lead to the publication of a set of articles and/or a monograph related to the general objectives of the Moving Stories Project.

2. The Research Associate will contribute to the team's collective work of preparation and publication of the project Sourcebook. This will involve the preparation of specific entries on sources as well as the chance to contribute an individually-authored essay to the book's introduction.

3. The Research Associate will collaborate with other members of the team, particularly in the review and analysis of Arabic sources, for inclusion in project publications.

About you

You will hold a relevant PhD/DPhil, or evidence that a doctorate is close to completion, together with relevant experience, and will possess sufficient specialist and linguistic knowledge in the discipline to contribute research to the main questions of the project, in particular written Arabic. You will have sufficient historical and disciplinary knowledge to contribute relevant individually-authored publications in line with the project objectives and excellent communication skills.
