We seek an interdisciplinary scholar whose work sheds light on important political issues in the Korean peninsula and beyond. Korea has gone through dramatic transformations in the last decades: from colonial occupation to divided nation-building compounded by the Cold War; from a poor agrarian society to the fourteenth largest global economy grappling with inequality and environmental issues; from a military dictatorship to an electoral democracy with vibrant social movements; and from the major source of emigrants to one of the most popular immigrant destinations in East Asia. We welcome scholars whose work comparative political understanding of economic development and inequality; democratization and social movements; geopolitics and national security; globalization, immigration, and diasporas; or any other topics that are critical in contemporary Korean politics.

The anticipated starting date for this university-year appointment is August 28, 2022, and the Department of Political Science will be the tenure home.

Entry-level applicants should submit three reference letters. All other applicants should provide names and contact information for three references.
