​​Postdoc Opportunity

​​The Farouk Jabre Center of Arabic and Islamic Science and Philosophy at the American University of Beirut (AUB) invites applications for a one year postdoc position for the AY 2019-20 starting anytime between September 2019 and January 2020, pending budgetary approval.

Applicants should hold a PhD or a doctorate related to Islamic Philosophy or Science by the time of application and should send 1) a statement of intent, 2) a brief research proposal, not to exceed 3 single-space pages, 3) a CV and 4) two letters of recommendation. The anticipated research should preferably be in the area of early Arabic and Islamic science and philosophy broadly conceived. Next to pursuing actively her own research, the successful candidate will be expected to participate in the intellectual life of the Center (participate in the organization of seminars and conferences).

AUB has a long history of engagement with Arabic and Islamic science and philosophy, extending back to at least 150 years, and thus can offer archival and library resources to the successful candidate. In return the candidate should be prepared to share the results of her/his research in a research seminar or a public lecture addressed to a more general audience, and may propose, with the approval of the director, to organize a symposium on the subject. Compensation and benefits are competitive.

All application material should be received by July 15, 2019, and sent to the following address:
