Visiting Fellows and Scholars and Research Associates are at the heart of the Centre of Islamic Studies’ intellectual community. They contribute to our research and outreach activities, while benefiting from contact with the University of Cambridge’s wider community as well as its library and research facilities. Visiting Fellows and Research Associates are usually appointed by invitation only. Visiting Scholars are appointed in response to applications, usually for between three and twelve months. Interested scholars whose research falls within the scope of the Centre are invited to apply here.
