Two Postdoctorate Research Fellowship posts in Critical Antisemitism Studies, Discrimination and Human Rights; £27,526 – £35,553 p.a. The fellowships are for early career scholars, (exceptional advanced doctorate students will be considered), with expertise in the interdisciplinary study of contemporary antisemitism, discrimination and human rights.
Submit a research proposal, a curriculum vitae, and three reference letters to Ira Guberman at [email protected].
The deadline for applications is 20 September 2021. Fellowships will be tenable from the 10th October 2021 for up to two academic years depending on the qualifications of the scholar. *Research Fellows are expected to reside in Cambridge, England, during the academic year.
We are seeking two exceptional candidates who hold a Ph.D./D.Phil. in a related discipline with significant post-qualification research experience within the field of study, an established publication record, and experience with international research and funding applications.
Under the direction of Charles Asher Small (D.Phil. Oxon), and with the support of a group of leading international scholars and policymakers, this programme will house Research Fellows for two academic years within an intensive training programme. The goal of this programme is to foster an innovative approach to the interdisciplinary study of contemporary antisemitism and help to develop a comprehensive school of thought for Contemporary Critical Antisemitism Studies, which will serve as a foundation for a viable interdisciplinary framework to decode and map contemporary antisemitism, as it relates to issues of discrimination and human rights.
Scholars will be selected by an Academic Selection Committee chaired by Charles Asher Small. Each candidate will demonstrate expertise as well as an ability to develop innovative research. Applicants are required to submit a research proposal, that is to be undertaken while they are Fellows. Their research proposals will be rooted in conceptual and quantitative-qualitative interdisciplinary analysis, in order to ensure that their work provides impactful insights in the examination of contemporary antisemitism, discrimination and human rights, in a time of globalisation. Researchers will be expected to engage in strategic research projects and subject matters. The relevance of the research topics will have bearing on the application and selection process. Supervision will be provided by Charles Asher Small and his colleagues, as well as by other academics and visiting scholars. Fellows will be expected to help to develop and coordinate programming, such as an academic seminar series and international conferences. The research fellows will present their work to colleagues in a regularly scheduled seminar.
