Applications are invited for the post of Research Associate in Biblical Hebrew Philology in the Department of Middle Eastern Studies, University of Cambridge, beginning 1st October 2017 for three years.

The holder of the post will work with Professor Geoffrey Khan on a reference grammar of Biblical Hebrew. Professor Khan has been commissioned by Oxford University Press to write a reference grammar that updates and expands the Hebrew Grammar of Wilhelm Gesenius. The new grammar will bring together the full range of diverse traditions of the language, both written and oral. The grammar will advance the field of Biblical Hebrew both by taking a holistic approach and also by presenting new research discoveries.

The Research Associate will be expected to divide his/her time equally between an independent research project on Biblical Hebrew philology and working directly with Professor Khan on the production of the reference grammar. The project of the Research Associate would be expected to result in a publication that would advance the field of Biblical Hebrew.

The Research Associate would be a member of the Hebrew Studies group in the Department of Middle Eastern Studies. Hebrew Studies currently includes teaching staff in the fields of Biblical, Medieval and Modern Hebrew, in addition to post-doctoral researchers, graduates and undergraduates.
