SEPAD will fund the successful candidate's workshop activities and provide access to research and logistical support where appropriate. 

We are looking for scholars with an emerging track record of excellence in the field - broadly - of Middle East Studies. The successful candidate will: 

  1. Hold a PhD or be close to completion
  2. Be able to work collaboratively
  3. Have a robust research agenda in Middle East Studies
