Prestigious Fellowship Opportunity in Islamic Finance under SC – Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies’ Initiative
15 November 2018   |   Kuala Lumpur
The Securities Commission Malaysia (SC) and the UK-based Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies (OCIS) today have opened nominations for the eighth Visiting Fellowship at OCIS under the Scholar in Residence (SIR) Programme in Islamic Finance for the 2019/20 academic year commencing October 2019.

The SIR Programme is a research initiative on contemporary issues in Islamic finance, particularly relating to Islamic capital markets. The programme, as well as the broader collaboration with OCIS, is part of the SC’s ongoing thought leadership and capacity building initiatives in advancing the global development of Islamic capital markets.

Applicants and nominees must have extensive experience in Islamic finance and/or a closely related discipline, and demonstrate competence in conducting independent academic research. The closing date for submissions is 4 February 2019.

The selected Scholar will take up residence in Oxford to conduct the research and to participate in a range of academic activities at OCIS. In addition, the Visiting Fellow is expected to give occasional lectures and conduct seminars, engage in collaborative study, and conduct outreach to relevant institutions and the local community.

The SIR Programme was set up in 2012 following a resolution made at the SC-OCIS Roundtable on Islamic Finance, an annual flagship event. Since its launch, six Scholars have successfully completed their respective research on topics of contemporary relevance to the field of Islamic finance, while two Scholars are currently in residence as Visiting Fellows.
