The Underwood International College of Yonsei University invites applications for a full-time tenure-track position as Assistant Professor of Asian History at the Yonsei International Campus in Songdo, located within the greater Seoul metropolitan region. The starting date is March or September 2015. The position is open to historians specializing in any region of Asia (broadly defined) in any period; scholars of Central, North, or Southeast Asia are particularly encouraged to apply. Candidates should be able to demonstrate significant research contributions to their fields and a strong commitment to undergraduate teaching.
Teaching responsibilities are 6 credit-hours (2 classes) per semester. Compensation includes a competitive salary, health insurance and other benefits, subsidized housing (for up to 6 years), and a generous relocation and start-up package. Yonsei University’s Underwood International College is a highly competitive undergraduate program at South Korea’s most prestigious private university, combining the intimate atmosphere and low student-faculty ratio of a liberal arts college with the resources of a major research university. All instruction is in English, and the student body represents over 47 countries. As part of Yonsei University’s commitment to building an international faculty, we can only accept applications from non-Korean citizens for this position.
Interested applicants should send a short letter of application detailing research and teaching interests, writing sample, c.v., and three letters of recommendation by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 15th.
