Cambridge Islamic College – Member of Faculty – 4 Positions [Closed]

Cambridge Islamic College is starting its flagship full-time 2-year ‘Alimiyyah Degree programme in September 2018. It is seeking to appoint four outstanding full-time members to its faculty of staff led by the Dean, Dr Mohammad Akram Nadwi. Two of these appointments will be from September 2018 and two from September 2019.

About Cambridge Islamic College

Our mission is to produce a generation of independent Islamic scholars and thinkers who are at the same time working professionals contributing to the wider British society. Cambridge Islamic College is committed to bridging the disconnect between mainstream secular education and specialised Islamic studies. It puts particular emphasis on attracting bright, capable students who are already professionals or on the way to becoming professionals. It expects its graduates to be active as role models in their communities, respected both for their knowledge of the religion and for the flexibility, realism, and independence of mind with which they apply it. In this way they will inspire others to combine the practice of Islam with a positive concern to use their personal and professional skills for the benefit of the whole society.

Cambridge Islamic College takes its students through a rigorous and critical study of the classical Islamic sciences and their sub-disciplines. No doubt, some students will go on to become specialists in Islamic studies and make that their profession. But that is not the primary aim of the College. Alongside the Islamic sciences, the contemporary challenges facing the world and Muslims in particular, are a core focus of the curriculum. Students are encouraged to develop an informed understanding of the shared and different values among Muslims and non-Muslims, and to cultivate the essentially religious virtue of respect and tolerance of others. That virtue is also the basis of civility and good citizenship, and the foundation of a cohesive society that embraces and enjoys its diversity.

About Member of Faculty Position

The successful candidate will work closely with the team to deliver core lectures of the programme to a group of bright and inquisitive ‘Alimiyyah Degree students. They will also be responsible for supervising student group discussions taking place after lectures each day. They will also spend half a Saturday every month with students, working on research, academic writing and public speaking skills. They are expected to be open to challenging questions and resulting discussions with students.

The applicant should have an ‘Alimiyyah degree or equivalent plus another degree in any other field of study from a reputable Western university. In addition, they should have at least 3 years of teaching experience. They must be strong in Classical and Standard Arabic as well as the English language. Candidates are expected to have a firm grounding in research and are required to reflect that in their teaching and supervisions.

The successful candidates must demonstrate a commitment to the aims and objectives of the College. They must also be open for video recording of their lectures and tutorials for teaching purposes.

Salaries are determined with reference to University of Cambridge salary scales, which is currently £28,695 – £37,394 per annum depending on qualification and experience. The appointment is permanent with a three-year probationary period.

Further particulars about this vacancy may be obtained by emailing the College Secretary (secretary@cambridgeislamiccollege.org). Informal enquiries may be made to Dr Mohammad Akram Nadwi (mohammad.akram@cambridgeislamiccollege.org).

To apply for this position, please send your Curriculum Vitae (CV) and a covering letter outlining current and future plans, indicating the fit within the faculty and how you might contribute to the teaching and aims of the College. Please email the documents to secretary@cambridgeislamiccollege.org by the deadline of 12:00pm on Friday 30th  Oct 2017. Alternatively you may post the documents to:
