The USC Korean Studies Institute AKS Post-Doctoral Fellowship  

With generous funding from the Korean Studies Promotion Service of the Academy of Korean Studies, the USC Korean Studies Institute is accepting applications for its 2015-2016 postdoctoral fellows program. The postdoctoral program is open to scholars from all fields whose research pertains to Korea or involves Korea as part of a larger comparative or interdisciplinary research. We particularly encourage proposals from the social sciences and non-traditional fields, such as Korean-American studies. 

In addition to a salary and benefits, the KSI will provide each fellow with shared office space at the KSI and a small research budget. The fellows are expected to participate in Institute programs and support the activities of the KSI. The Fellow must have a Ph.D. in hand, and should be within 5 years of having received the Ph.D., by the beginning of the appointment.

To apply, please send a 1) letter of application, 2) c.v., 3) thesis abstract, 4) two letters of recommendation (to be sent directly by the referees), and 5) a writing sample to http://dornsife.usc.edu/cf/ksi/postdoc-fellowship.cfm The deadline for the receipt of all materials is January 16, 2015. Applications will only be accepted online, and the logistics of reference letters and other uploads can be found at the link enclosed in this advertisement.
