UCLan is a well-established university with nearly 200 years experience of delivering high quality tertiary education; our focus is on research-informed teaching and a superlative student experience. The School of Language, Literature and International Studies (SoLLIS) is thriving, with an expanding provision at undergraduate and postgraduate level, delivering courses in the UK, Asia and Europe as well as receiving a significant number of international students into the School annually.

The School wishes to appoint a Professor to act as the Director of the School's forthcoming institute, IKSU, which will focus on a range of issues which are of strategic importance to the School: research, postgraduate teaching and doctoral work; bringing Korean studies together with other disciplines within the University to enhance existing courses and explore new possibilities; further enhancing the international portfolio and staff/student mobility.

We are seeking applicants who have significant experience relevant to internationally excellent research in Korean Studies, have a world-leading research and public engagement profile and have experience of teaching and supervising in higher education.
