With the generous funding from the Academy of Korean Studies for the Core
University Program for Korean Studies, the Department of Chinese and Korean
Studies of the Institute of Asian and Oriental Studies (AOI) at Eberhard
Karls University Tübingen invites applications for the following position:

*Ph.D. Candidate or Doktorand in Korean Studies*

*(Salary according to German TV-L 13, 50%)*

The appointment will start on January 1, 2017, and will initially be for
two years. After a successful evaluation, the position can be extended for
one more year.

Requirements are a M.A. in Korean Studies or in a related discipline with a
focus on Korea, and fluency in English, Korean, and German is desired. The
candidate must have a M.A. by the time of appointment.

The successful candidate is expected to participate and contribute to
research projects and programs in the Tübingen Global Korea Project,
especially in the fields of Global Cold War of Korea, Korea’s Colonialism
in the Global Perspective, and/or Korea’s Global Migrations. The Korean
Studies Program is especially interested in candidates whose research can
complement and strengthen the existing approach of situating the study of
Korean history, society, and culture into transnational and global
contexts. The fellow is expected to teach one course per semester (2 hours
per week) and to contribute to administrative work, including assistance in
the administration of the Tübingen Global Korea Project.

Applications should be composed in English or German and addressed to the

following documents: 1) letter of application, 2) curriculum vitae, 3) copy
of M.A. thesis, and 4) transcripts.

*The** application deadline is October 1, 2016.* Finalists may be
interviewed in October.

The University of Tübingen is an equal opportunities employer and places
particular emphasis on fostering career opportunities for women. Qualified
women are therefore strongly encouraged to apply. Applications from
disabled candidates will be given preference if the qualifications of these
candidates are identical to those of a non-disabled candidate.

Lee, Director of the Tübingen Global Korea Project and the Head of the
