1.Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships 2017
Aga Khan University (International) in the UK
Salary: Not specified
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent
Placed on: 29th June 2017
Closes: 20th July 2017
The Aga Khan University’s Institute for the Study of Muslim Civilisations in London, United Kingdom (“the Institute”) is currently inviting expressions of interest for Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships. Holders of Fellowships will have the opportunity to pursue research within a stimulating and supportive environment by playing an active role in the intellectual life of the Institute. The Institute does not itself award the Fellowship but supports selected applications to the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme.
The Institute aims to focus on issues that are relatively unexplored within contemporary Muslim societies. In particular, it concentrates on two broad research themes:
The Construction of Knowledge about Muslim Cultures and Societies
Understanding the Processes of Social Change in Muslim Cultures and Societies
The Institute is also building several research programmes and projects, two in particular which might benefit from a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow:
Governance for the Public Interest in Muslim Contexts (with a focus on constitutional law in Muslim contexts)
Digital Humanities – KITAB, a project which undertakes a far-reaching evaluation of the classical Arabic textual tradition (750–1200) for the purpose of understanding how cultural memory was negotiated and shaped by authors when they created books. Its ingenuity derives from the application of text reuse methods, which detect the copying of texts into other texts and thus enable study of the form and content of the textual tradition.
The Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions (MSCA) provide grants for all stages of researchers’ careers and encourage transnational, intersectoral and interdisciplinary mobility. Individual Fellowships – European are 1-2 years in duration and provide opportunities to acquire and transfer new knowledge and to work on research in a European context (EU Member States and Associated Countries). The scheme particularly supports the return and reintegration of researchers from outside Europe who have previously worked here. It also develops or helps to restart the careers of individual researchers that show great potential, considering their experience.
