From https://www.h-net.org/jobs/job_display.php?id=48682 :
Research Officers (one year fixed term) - Islamic Intellectual History

University Grade 7, 29,837 33,562 per annum

Applications are invited for full-time Research Officers on the IMPAcT Project, to commence on 1 October 2014 for one year. Five posts are available. The Research Officer will conduct advanced research leading to the preparation of either a monograph or the critical edition of a previously unpublished primary source relevant for 13th to 16th century Islamic intellectual history. She/he will present research in progress as part of the IMPAcT lecture series and similar events. Candidates must have, by the time of the appointment, a doctorate or equivalent in a relevant field of study; a primary expertise in Islamic philosophy and/or theology or other relevant field of intellectual history; a strong command of at least one Islamic language and reading knowledge of a second, plus advanced reading knowledge of at least one European language other than English; a thorough understanding of Islamic social and political history of the period; sufficient palaeographical skills to work with Islamic manuscripts; good basic IT skills; good written and oral communication skills; good skills and experience in teamwork; and good planning and time management skills.


BTW: It's probably just because I'm an unlearned dinosaur, but: I'm a bit irritated by the use of "Islamic" in combinations like  "Islamic philosophy" (as it might be in the eye of the beholder whether Averroes should be discussed as belonging to that box) and "Islamic language" (what proportion of the speakers of a language have to be Muslims to have that language included in the list of "Islamic languages"?). Would persons who talk about "Islamic languages" consider Polish a "Catholic language"?  Would persons who talk about "Islamic philosophy" consider Cesare Cremonini a "Catholic philosopher"? And if not: all or only some of Melanchthon's philosophy texts as "Lutheran philosophy"?
