The recipient of a five-year (2013-18) $600,000 grant from the Academy of Korean Studies (AKS) in South Korea, UCSD is proud to announce a new postdoctoral/lecturer position in Transnational Korean Studies for the 2014-15 academic year. This inter-disciplinary position is part of a campus-wide effort to place historical and contemporary issues concerning the Korean peninsula – migration, colonialism/neo-imperialism, developmentalism, cultural flows, security, and corruption, for example – in the regional and global contexts to which they belong. We are especially interested in candidates who can dialogue with both the humanities and the social sciences and whose research and teaching complement the existing strengths of UCSD’s Program in Transnational Korean Studies (http://koreanstudies.ucsd.edu/). Areas such as North Korean culture and politics, film and media studies, transnational labor, minority populations, and comparative economies, among others, are particularly welcome. In addition to conducting advanced mentored research, the successful fellow/lecturer will be expected to offer two courses on the quarter system, present one research lecture, and participate in the activities of the Program.
