To apply

The Institute of Ismaili Studies was established in 1977 with the object of promoting scholarship and learning of Muslim cultures and societies, historical as well as contemporary, and a better understanding of their relationship with other societies and faiths. Our publishing and postgraduate study programmes encourage a perspective that is not confined to the theological and religious heritage of Islam, but that seeks to explore the relationship of religious ideas to broader dimensions of society and culture. We therefore encourage an interdisciplinary approach to the materials of Islamic history and thought.

The Institute of Ismaili Studies is looking to appoint a Research Associate in South Asian Studies with an interest in a variety of historic, contemporary and emerging subjects, as they relate to Islam and Muslims of South Asia. The successful applicant will engage in high-quality research and publications, joining a dynamic team of scholars in its Department of Academic Research and Publications (DARP).

You will be an outstanding scholar with a doctorate in a field of Islam and a proven track record of publications and teaching. A thorough knowledge of the current state of the field of Ismaili studies and related aspects of Shi’i and Ismaili history and thought as well as ability to read Khojki will be an added advantage. You will be a competent user of one of the following languages: Gujarati, Sindhi or Urdu.

You will deliver interdisciplinary and impactful research that advances Ismaili studies nationally and internationally, contributing to the Institute’s mission of remaining a leading institution of academic excellence in the field.

Within the vibrant regenerated Knowledge Quarter of King’s Cross, the IIS is located in new purpose-built premises which also house the world-class Aga Khan Library. Potential applicants can find out about the Aga Khan Centre here:
