Location: Philadelphia, PA
Open Date: Nov 30, 2023
Deadline:

The James Joo-Jin Kim Center for Korean Studies at the University of Pennsylvania announces a Moon Family Postdoctoral Fellowship for the 2024-25 academic year. The postdoctoral fellowship is open to scholars whose research and teaching focus on Korea in the humanities (art, cinema, history, literature, music, philosophy, religion, theater, and the like).

The fellowship will cover the 12-month period between August 1, 2024 and July 31, 2025 and provide a stipend of $65,000 as well as conference travel funds up to $2,000. The Kim Center will cover the cost of the fellow's health insurance (including medical, dental, vision, and life). The postdoctoral fellow will also receive an office space and access to libraries and other resources at Penn. The fellowship may be renewed for a second year, based on satisfactory performance, the existence of funding, and programmatic need.

The fellow will be required to: 1) reside in the Philadelphia area; 2) teach one course per year; 3) give a public presentation for the Korean Studies Colloquium; 4) mentor the Kim Center graduate fellows; 5) participate in the Kim Center events and related activities at Penn; and 6) organize a Korean Studies Conference (either in Fall 2024 or in Spring 2025).
