Dear All,

Please help spread the words about the following Korean history position at
the Univ. of Utah. 
Utah has a 2/2 load (as a research university), salary actually _is_
competitive for starting assistant (and the cost of living is still pretty
low compared to California and big cities), benefits are better than a lot
of places (pension is 14% and health insurance plans are all quite cheap),
its junior faculty have done exceptionally well at taking advantage of
internal opportunities for release time and research funds, it has a large
cohort of junior faculty (1/3 of the department), and
people get along well. It is actually a very good place to write your book
because there are plenty of chances to give presentations and talk about
your work. 
If you have questions about the position please contact me
(nlee at humnet.ucla.edu, tel: 310-794-2666) or Wesley Sasaki-Uemura, director
of Asian Studies at Utah (wes.sasaki-uemura at utah.edu, tel: 801-585-6991).
Thank you.
