University of Notre Dame, Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures
Assistant Professor in Modern Korean Literature and Popular Culture
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||Indiana, United States|
The University of Notre Dame invites applications for the tenure-track position of assistant professor in modern (including contemporary) Korean literature and popular culture, beginning August 2024. The position will be based in the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures, with possible concurrent appointment in the Department of Film, Television, and Theatre.
Preference will be given to candidates who can offer courses on modern fiction, film, and popular culture. Responsibilities include teaching two undergraduate courses per semester. Most teaching will focus specifically on Korean topics, but there is also scope for offering comparative courses on film and/or popular culture. Native or near-native proficiency in Korean language is expected of all applicants. Active programmatic involvement and close collaboration with our faculty to advance our growing Korean language and culture program are also expected.
As an international Catholic research university, the University of Notre Dame has made a significant commitment to furthering Asian Studies, as evidenced by the founding of the Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies in 2011 and the opening of the Keough School of Global Affairs in 2014, both of which have driven increasing demand for Asia-related language and content courses.
