Mellon Post-doctoral Fellowship in Korean political identity 
Korean Studies Institute 
University of Southern California 
The USC-Korean Studies Institute seeks applications for a two-year
Mellon Post-doctoral fellowship in the construction of modern Korean
political identity broadly defined, especially its changing character in
the face of modernization, democratization, and globalization. Founded
in 1995, the Korean Studies Institute aims to become a leading center
for research and teaching in Korean studies. The Institute is involved
in numerous scholarly activities that span both the humanities and the
social sciences, and the Korean Heritage Library at USC is widely
considered one of the five best Korean academic collections in North
America. The academic department with which the fellow affiliates will
depend on the fellow’s research and teaching interests, such as the
School of International Relations, the department of East Asian
Languages and Cultures, or the Political Science department. The fellow
will teach one course per semester at USC, have research and office
space at the KSI, and be expected to participate in Institute programs
relevant to the fellow’s interests.  The Fellow must have a Ph.D. in
hand, and should be within 5 years of receiving the Ph.D., by the
beginning of the appointment. To apply, please send a letter of
application, c.v., thesis abstract, two letters of recommendation (to be
sent directly by the referees), and a writing sample to David C. Kang,
Director, USC-Korean Studies Institute, 809 West 34th Street (AHN 100)
University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA 90089-0142.  The
deadline for the receipt of all materials is March 20, 2009.  Inquiries
should be directed to Prof. Kang (david.c.kang at usc.edu).  Information
about Institute programs can be found at our website,
http://college.usc.edu/ksi/. USC strongly values diversity and is
committed to equal opportunity in employment. Women and men, and members
of all racial and ethnic groups, are encouraged to apply.
