‘Stories of Survival’ is a major 5-year research project funded by a €1.5 million European Research Council Starting Grant (2015 – 20), directed by Dr John-Paul Ghobrial, and based at the University of Oxford.

We are seeking up to two Research Associates to join the team from January 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.

They will hold a doctorate in a relevant field (or show evidence that a doctorate is imminent), have excellent knowledge of Arabic and/or Syriac, and excellent spoken and written English. They will have outstanding communication skills, a capacity for excellent independent research and be capable of working to strict deadlines.
