A very happy new year from the International Center for Korean Studies
at Seoul National University! Please consider forwarding this
announcement to any colleagues who might be interested. Thank you.

The Kyujanggak Institute for Korean Studies at Seoul National
University invites applications for its 2008-09 postdoctoral
Kyujanggak Fellowship program. The Institute will offer up to four
awards, beginning in August 2008. Fellows are expected to arrive no
later than September 2008, remain in residence for ten to twelve
months, actively participate in the Institute's colloquia and
seminars, give a presentation, and publish an article in the
peer-reviewed Seoul Journal of Korean Studies. The Seoul-California
Series in Korean Studies will exercise right of first refusal of the
book manuscript emerging from the fellowship. If accepted, the
resulting book will be published in the Series, which is co-published
by the University of California Press.

Candidates must have received their Ph.D. by time of appointment and
be able to articulate an outstanding research agenda in the field of
Korean Studies. While priority is given to those who have received
their Ph.D.s within the last five years, junior faculty whose research
directly pertains to the Kyujanggak collection are also welcome to
apply. The committee pays special attention to those scholars who plan
to make use of the Kyujanggak collection, but those working on
contemporary Korea are also encouraged to apply.

The fellowship provides a total stipend of 30 million Korean won,
disbursed in 10 monthly installments, on-campus housing (a family unit
if requested), round-trip airfare, medical insurance, and a $1500
research grant. Fellows are also provided shared office space with
computer, library access and other associated research assistance.
Deadline for receipt of applications is February 15, 2008. A decision
will be announced by the end of March.

Inquiries should be directed to Prof. Eun-su Cho, Chair of the
International Committee, at escho at snu.ac.kr. The application form and
more detailed information can be obtained by contacting the program
coordinator at icks at snu.ac.kr.
