Kyujanggak Institute' 2009-2010 postdoctoral fellowship program

THE Kyujanggak Institute for Korean Studies would like to invite applications for its 2009-2010 postdoctoral fellowship program. The fellowship gives recent Ph.D.s the chance to use the Kyujanggak collection as well as other resources at Seoul National University to carry out their research projects or prepare a manuscript for publication. Applications by junior faculty members whose research pertains directly to the Kyujanggak collection will also be considered.

Benefits include a 3 million won monthly stipend, round-trip airfare, on-campus housing, and shared office space. The fellowship terms are 3, 6, or 10 months. Applicants should demonstrate an outstanding research agenda and have their Ph.D. in hand before the beginning of their fellowship term. Applications should include a cover letter, 5-page research proposal, application form (available online), CV, two work samples, and two recommendations. Fellows are expected to be in residence for the full term of their fellowship, contribute to the academic activities at Kyujanggak, and submit their work to be considered for publication in the Seoul Journal of Korean Studies (articles) or the Seoul-California Series in Korean Studies (monographs).

The deadlines for application are December 29, 2008 (for fellowships starting in September or December 2009), and 30 June 2009 (for fellowships starting in March or June 2010).

For more details, and for the application form, please see or contact the International Center for Korean Studies, which coordinates the fellowships, at
