The Université de Nantes is hiring a post-doctoral researcher to join the project “The European Qur’ān: Islamic Scripture in European Culture and Religion (1150-1850)” (EuQu: see https://euqu.eu/ ).

Logo This is an exciting opportunity for early career researchers to be involved in a highly visible, international collaborative research project that involves leading academic institutions in Europe and beyond. We offer outstanding work and research conditions, competitive salaries, funded travel opportunities, options for prolonged stays at partner universities and involvements in ventures at the forefront of cultural studies and digital humanities. The chosen candidate will conduct research under the supervision of leading scholars in the field of Christian-Muslim relations and have the opportunity to collaborate and exchange with colleagues from a wide range of disciplinary, institutional and personal backgrounds.

Applicants should send an application, consisting of a letter of application, a project description, a curriculum vitae, and names of three references (with titles and e-mail addresses). The project description (5 pages maximum) should outline how the candidate’s previous research is germane to the themes of EuQu and how the candidate would contribute to the EuQu project, giving specific examples of material that s/he would integrate into the database and a tentative description of his/her planned monograph for the project.  Before writing the project description, candidates should familiarize themselves with the EuQu project through consulting its website.

Selected applicants will be interviewed in April or May 2021.  The interviews will be conducted by EuQu’s four principal investigators.  Applicants will be interviewed via videoconference.  Applicants will subsequently be informed of the results of their application by the end of May.
