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:

Postdoctoral Fellow in Tübingen Global Korea Project
