Dr. Kim Jae-Hyun (Jaehyeon 김재현) head of the Korea Institute for Advanced Theological Studies (KIATS) in Seoul is looking for more translators. KIATS is a small operation with a large vision to compile and translate documents from the history of Christianity in Korea, from the 19th century on. It has already done quite a bit, and most of the projects deal with documents that are of importance to historians of religion in Korea. Near-native English skills are acceptable. Residence in Korea not necessary.

If you’re interested, contact Dr. Kim directly to find out what he has in mind.
