Tenure track position in Japanese History
The Underwood International College (UIC) of Yonsei University invites applications for a tenure-track position as Assistant Professor of Japanese History. The appointment will be within the Asian Studies Division of UIC, beginning March 1, 2014. The successful candidate will teach at the Yonsei International Campus in Songdo, located within the greater Seoul metropolitan region. Specialization is open, but preference will be given to candidates who are conversant with critical and methodological issues at stake in one or more fields, and are able to teach a breadth of history courses from Japan’s early modern period to the present. Applicants must have a promising publication record and strong commitment to liberal arts undergraduate education.
Teaching responsibilities are 6 credit-hours (2 classes) per semester. Compensation includes competitive salary, fully subsidized housing for up to six years, health insurance and other benefits, along with a relocation and start-up package.
With Yonsei University full commitment to establishing Underwood International College as the premier English-language liberal arts college in Northeast Asia, UIC maintains a highly selective program, combining the intimate atmosphere and low student-faculty ratio of a liberal arts college, but with the considerable institutional resources of South Korea’s leading private university. All instruction is in English, and the student body consists of native and near-native speakers of English who apply from some forty-seven countries. As part of Yonsei University’s continuing efforts to increase faculty diversity, we are accepting applications only from those who hold non-Korean passports.
Interested applicants should send hard copies of a cover letter, dissertation abstract, one-page statement of teaching philosophy, a writing sample, three letters of reference, and curriculum vitae to
