Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship at Silsila: Center for Material Histories, New York University. The Center fosters interdisciplinary scholarship on material histories of the pre- and early modern Islamicate world, broadly conceived. It supports research on transcultural and transregional phenomena that contributes to a reimagining of current disciplinary boundaries, chronologies, and epistemic paradigms.

They will also be expected to teach one course per semester, either a survey or an advanced course in their subject area. The appointment will run from September 1st 2020 to August 31st 2021 with the possibility of a one-year renewal, pending budgetary and administrative approval.
Applicants should have a PhD in hand, relevant language skills, and proven research interests in the art, architecture or material culture of Islamicate societies before 1500. Candidates must have completed their Ph.D. no earlier than September 1, 2015. Review of applications will begin on November 25th and continue until the position is filled.
