Dear colleagues


Can I please bring to your attention  the advertisement of a vacancy for a
Lecturer in Asia-Pacific Studies at UCLan. Please note that this is not a
language post although Asia-Pacific studies students follow a full time
language course as part of the degree, in either Korean, Chinese or
Japanese, and spend a year abroad in the respective country. Many of the
students study Korean so Korea-focused research would provide a useful
foundation for this post. I have posted in below the details and all
information as to how to apply is on the UClan website. Many thanks, Hazel
