About Us: The Institute of Ismaili Studies was established in 1977 with the object of promoting scholarship and learning of Muslim cultures and societies, historical as well as contemporary, and a better understanding of their relationship with other societies and faiths. Our publishing and postgraduate study programmes encourage a perspective that is not confined to the theological and religious heritage of Islam, but that seeks to explore the relationship of religious ideas to broader dimensions of society and culture. We thus encourage an interdisciplinary approach to the materials of Islamic history and thought.
About You: You will be educated to a degree level and have proven experience in administration, alumni or public relations, with a very good level of computer literacy. You will have strong interpersonal and organisational skills with the ability to work in a high-pressure environment and have excellent written and oral communication skills in English and Persian.
