Job description
The Research Unit Intellectual History of the Islamicate World invites
applications for a post-doctoral research position, which is tenable for a
fixed period of five years. Candidates will work within the framework of the
DFG-funded German-Israeli research project “The Bible in Arabic among Jews,
Christians and Muslims: The Scriptural Translation Movement of the Middle
Ages”, with the principal investigators Camilla Adang (TAU), Meira Polliack
(TAU), and Sabine Schmidtke (FU-Berlin).  The research project aims to
investigate biblical translation traditions into Arabic, both of Jewish and
Christian provenance, their aims and techniques, as well as the social and
cultural implications of their innovative and ambitious inter-religious
endeavour. In addition, though scholarship has long been occupied with defining
 the relationship of Islamic literature (Qurʾān and the ḥadīth) to a
former body of  Jewish and Christian religious texts, the focus will be on a
crucial yet neglected dimension, namely, the Islamic reaction to the
dissemination of written Arabic Bible versions by members of these protected
faiths, and the wider effect of these versions on the Muslims' perception of
the Qurʾān as the ultimately revealed scripture, and of Muhammad as the Seal
of Prophets.

Requirements
She or he should hold a doctorate with a specialisation in this field,
preferably with an expertise in Christian-Arabic versions of the Bible, and
have a record of scholarship in the field, by the time the appointment begins.
Furthermore, she/he will be actively engaged in all activities relevant to the
research group including the planning and realisation of workshops,
conferences, and publications, as well as the participation in its operation
and activities. There is the opportunity to teach in the area of her/his
specialization. Applicants should be fluent in English. The ability to work in
German would be recommendable and since the project is a German-Israeli
collaboration, a knowledge of Hebrew is an advantage.

Applications including all relevant documents (cover letter; CV; list of
publication, copies of academic diplomas; two letters of recommendation) and
quoting the mentioned application code BIA-PostDoc-2013 should be submitted by
30 November 2012 to Dr. phil. Katja Jung (katja.jung@fu-berlin.de), Academic
Coordinator of the Research Unit Intellectual History of the Islamicate World,
or to the above indicated address.
