Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU), a member of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science, and Community Development (QF), was founded in 2010 to continue fulfilling QF’s vision of unlocking human potential. HBKU is an emerging research university that acts as a catalyst for transformative change in Qatar and the region while having a global impact.
HBKU’s College of Islamic Studies (CIS) was founded to become a beacon for contemporary Islamic scholarship and thought, and a platform for meaningful intellectual and cultural dialogue on Islam and Muslims. Through its postgraduate programs and research centers, CIS seeks to address some of the most pressing questions facing Muslim communities today, both locally and globally. Through its offerings, the College strives to advance an understanding of Islam and Muslims and to produce graduates who can contribute and excel in a rapidly changing world.
CIS currently has an open position for an assistant, associate, or full Professor of Sustainable Urbanism in the MSc Program in Islamic Art, Architecture, and Urbanism. The ideal candidate is expected to contribute to the teaching and academic strengths of the discipline, including the pursuit of research funding and publication in high-standing peer-reviewed academic journals.
The MSc Program in Islamic Art, Architecture, and Urbanism is one of the pioneer postgraduate programs in the region worldwide. The program is unique in focus, structure, and content with no similar program being offered in Qatar, the region, or the Islamic world. The program focuses on understandings related to art history, architecture, and sustainable urbanism in the Islamic world, exemplifying its critical construction, acquisition, dissemination, and application to international institutions, in general, and more specifically to communities of Muslim traditions and knowledge that is rooted in the Islamic tradition.
The MSc Program in Islamic Art, Architecture, and Urbanism is comprehensive in nature as it integrates an all-encompassing approach to the understanding of the built environment and culture of Muslim communities. It addresses the built environment at different scales ranging from interior spaces and buildings, through exterior and urban public spaces, to the city.
