September 2009.

The successful candidate is expected to have the ability to engage in
teaching
in core areas of Islamic studies (such as the Qur¹an, Sufism, hadith,
fiqh, or
philosophy). Fluency in Arabic is essential, and the successful
candidate will
be expected to teach courses using Arabic texts as well as courses using
texts
in translation. A degree of fluency in another related language ­
especially
Persian and/or Turkish ­ is an added advantage. In addition, this
candidate
will show promise in or have an established record of achieving
excellence in
research and publication.

This candidate will contribute to a new undergraduate degree in Islamic
Studies, as well as supervising postgraduates in a wide range of topics
relating to the study of Islam. Additional desirable areas of academic
interest
may include: Islamic science, modern Islamic movements, kalam, gender
studies
,
Islamic finance, regional interests outside of the Arab world, or
comparative
approaches to the study of Islam.

The successful candidate will join a dynamic department committed to
excellence
in teaching and research, with a long history of prominence in Islamic
studies.
In the 2008 UK Research Assessment Exercise, IMES achieved the
second-highest
national result, confirming the department's continuing role as a
leading
programme for research and study of Islam, the Middle East, and other
related
subjects; in the assessment over 70% of research activity in IMES was
classified as being Œworld-leading in terms of originality, significance
and
rigour'.

At the University of Edinburgh, IMES operates in partnership with two
other
major centres of research and teaching relating to the Arab and Islamic
worlds,
the Centre for the Advanced Study of the Arab World
(http://www.casaw.ac.uk),
and the new Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Centre for the Study of Islam in
the
Contemporary World.
