The Oman Research Grant for a visiting research fellowship



Deadline: 13 September 2021

Leibniz-Zentrum Moderner Orientin Berlin, Germany, is inviting applications for the Oman Re- search Grant, sponsored by the Sultan Qaboos Higher Centre for Culture and Science. The Grant comprises funding for a research stay in Berlin of up to 3 months in 2022 at ZMO, as well as travel costs to Berlin, for the successful candidate. We are seeking to attract an outstanding postdoctoral scholar who is engaged in projects in research fields related to Omani Studies.

ZMO expects all fellows to participate in the centre’s academic life and to give one presenta- tion on their project. The awarded fellow is to acknowledge the research grant achievements and publications as “Funded by The Sultan Qaboos Higher Centre for Culture and Science” and to provide the Sultan Qaboos Higher Centre for Culture and Science with five copies of publica- tions funded by the grant.

The grant will be worth 2500 Euros per month, in addition to the costs of travel of up to 500 Euros.

Applicants are invited to consult the ZMO website before submitting their proposals in order to better gauge the context in which they intend to work. We are happy to answer questions prior to the application.

The review of applications by the Selection Committee (comprising ZMO researchers and one employee of the Omani Embassy as an observer) will be finalised by the end of September.

Applications should be sent by email only, and include:

  • A brief cover letter (1 page), indicating the envisaged period of stay

  • Description of a research project to be worked upon during the visit (max. 3 pages)

  • CV, including a complete list of publications

  • PhD certificate (or proof of submission)
