Ph.D. Candidate or Doktorand in Korean Studies

Posted on: 27.08.2016

With the generous funding from the Academy of Korean Studies for the Core University Program for Korean Studies, the Department of Chinese and Korean Studies of the Institute of Asian and Oriental Studies (AOI) at Eberhard Karls University Tübingen invites applications for the following position:

Ph.D. Candidate or Doktorand in Korean Studies

(Salary according to German TV-L 13, 50%)

The appointment will start on January 1, 2017, and will initially be for two years. After a successful evaluation, the position can be extended for one more year.

Requirements are a M.A. in Korean Studies or in a related discipline with a focus on Korea, and fluency in English, Korean, and German is desired. The candidate must have a M.A. by the time of appointment.

The successful candidate is expected to participate and contribute to research projects and programs in the Tübingen Global Korea Project, especially in the fields of Global Cold War of Korea, Korea’s Colonialism in the Global Perspective, and/or Korea’s Global Migrations. The Korean Studies Program is especially interested in candidates whose research can complement and strengthen the existing approach of situating the study of Korean history, society, and culture into transnational and global contexts. The fellow is expected to teach one course per semester (2 hours per week) and to contribute to administrative work, including assistance in the administration of the Tübingen Global Korea Project.

Applications should be composed in English or German and addressed to the Director of Korean Studies, Prof. You Jae Lee.

Applications should consist of the following documents: 1) letter of application, 2) curriculum vitae, 3) copy of M.A. thesis, and 4) transcripts.

The application deadline is October 1, 2016. Finalists may be interviewed in October.

The University of Tübingen is an equal opportunities employer and places particular emphasis on fostering career opportunities for women. Qualified women are therefore strongly encouraged to apply. Applications from disabled candidates will be given preference if the qualifications of these candidates are identical to those of a non-disabled candidate.

For further questions about this position, please contact Prof. You Jae Lee, Director of the Tübingen Global Korea Project and the Head of the Korean Studies Program at the University of Tübingen.
