Korea Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowships, University of Pennsylvania

University of Pennsylvania, James Joo-Jin Kim Program in Korean Studies
Korea Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowships (2012-13)

James Joo-Jin Kim Program in Korean Studies at the University of Pennsylvania welcomes applications for postdoctoral fellowship at UPenn, funded by the Korea Foundations Postdoctoral Fellowship Program.

Applicants will apply simultaneously to the Korea Foundation and Penn. Selection by the university does not guarantee Korea Foundation selection, but Penn will advise the Korea Foundation of its selected candidate(s). Scholars must have received their Ph.D. on a subject related to Korea (in the humanities or social sciences) within 5 years of their application and cannot currently hold a regular faculty position. Confirmation of doctoral degree conferral will be required by July 1, 2012, and no exception will be allowed. South Korean nationals are eligible to apply only if they have permanent residency status in another country.

Disbursement of the postdoctoral stipend for a 12-month period (July 1, 2012-June 30, 2013) will be determined in accordance with Penn regulations. This fellowship cannot be combined with other fellowships and grants. During the term of appointment, the fellow will be expected to participate actively in the Kim Program, including giving a talk and rendering administrative support. Teaching a course will be negotiable, subject to the fellows expertise and student demand at Penn.

In order to apply to Penn for affiliation as a Korea Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow, submit all application materials to both the Korea Foundation and the university. Information on the funding itself, required application materials, application procedures, and the Korea Foundation submission deadline can be found at http://www.kf.or.kr/. Materials received by Penn must be postmarked no later than January 3, 2012.
