Shahnameh research assistantships

Applications are invited for two-three Research Assistantships in connection with an AHRB (British Academy)- funded research project on Firdausi's "Book of Kings" (Shahnameh).

The project aims essentially to create a corpus of Shahnameh manuscript illustrations and to provide a forum for art-historical, literary and historical investigations. A first degreee in Middle Eastern Studies would be useful; a knowledge of Persian is essential.

Ability to run and maintain computer applications with an internet connection will be required. The successful applicants will also need to be able to work on their own initiative and be free to travel in the UK and abroad.

The Research Assistantship Grade IA has a starting salary of #19,140 stlg. (and could be shared); Grade IB (half-time) starts at #9,570 stlg.

Appointments will be for one year, renewable, subject to a satisfactory probationary period. The project begins on 1 October 1999 and applicants should be available to start as soon as practical after that date.

Applications or requests for further details should be addressed to Dr Charles Melville, Faculty of Oriental Studies, University of Cambridge, Sidgwick Avenue, Cambridge CB3 9DA (email:
