Scholars of North Korea are invited to apply for a Postdoctoral Fellowship/Research Fellowship (Level A/B) to work with Professor Tessa Morris-Suzuki’s ARC Laureate Fellowship “Informal Life Politics in the Remaking of Northeast Asia: From Cold War to Post-Cold War.” This is a two-year fixed-term position. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in a relevant discipline and a record of academic publications on North Korea.
The selected candidate will pursue both independent and team-based research consistent with the project, which focuses on “informal life politics,” that is, local-level grassroots movements in which individuals or groups act to protect their health or livelihood from threats seen as emanating from economic and environmental change, state action, or the failures of state policy. The appointee will identify and research relevant case studies from North Korea and collaborate with other project members in cross-border analysis of informal life politics in the Northeast Asian region as a whole.
The official position announcement with additional information about application requirements can be found at http://jobs.anu.edu.au/PositionDetail.aspx?p=2937. The application deadline is October 28, 2012. Inquiries should be directed to Tessa Morris-Suzuki at Tessa.Morris-Suzuki@anu.edu.au.
