The candidate should be competent in the appropriate research languages and conversant with the broader, global history of Islamic religion and culture. They will work closely with students in the Divinity School’s masters programs and the doctoral program in the Study of Religion. It is likely they will also teach undergraduates in the Comparative Study of Religion and graduate students in related departments of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. It is expected that this scholar will be in conversation with those in other programs and schools at Harvard critical to Islamic Studies. Openness to our growing program in ministry studies in Islam will be an advantage.
Review of applications will begin in September 2019 and continue until the position is filled. Selected candidates may be invited to initial interviews at the American Academy of Religion Annual Meeting in San Diego, CA, this coming November.
