Applications are warmly invited for the Cochrane Research Fellowship 2023 at the Chester Beatty. This is a three-month, funded postdoctoral research position that must be undertaken within the calendar year 2023 (please follow the link below for full information). The purpose of the Fellowship is to support academic research on Arabic manuscripts in the Chester Beatty collections and to share that research with the academic community and museum audiences.
There are approximately 3,000 Arabic manuscripts (including copies of the Qur’an) at the Chester Beatty, written on papyrus, parchment and paper. These offer an exceptional resource for scholarship, with open potential to research the histories of art, ideas, faith, science, literature, libraries, intellectual networks, empire, and collecting.
Funded by the Cochrane Family, the Cochrane Research Fellowship programme will be offered annually for a four-year period (2023–2026).
To apply for the 2023 Fellowship, please submit your application form and CV to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 23 December 2022.
