The Asiatic Research Institute at Korea University invites applications for its 2013–2014 Fellowship Program for Northeast Asian Studies. The program is designed to provide scholars and doctoral candidates of foreign countries with an opportunity to carry out research on topics related to Northeast Asia at Korea University. The fellowship period is for up to six months and may begin any time between January 1 and December 31.
Individuals in the fields of humanities and social sciences who are currently engaged in Northeast Asia-related research and teaching activities are eligible to apply. The fellowship is not open to Korean nationals, except those with resident status in foreign countries. Priority will be given to scholars who have received their Ph.D. degree within five years of their application and doctoral candidates who have completed all academic requirements except the dissertation.
The fellowship grant includes economy-class round-trip airfare (for those who are based overseas prior to the fellowship period); free accommodations either on or off campus; and access to ARI facilities, including Korea University libraries, and a communal office to be shared with other visiting fellows. Successful applicants will be encouraged to present work-in-progress and to conduct joint research with ARI members.
Applications require submission of an application form that can be found on line at http://asiaticresearch.org/index.php?mid=a_03_01; a curriculum vitae; a research proposal; and evidence of current employment or affiliation (if possible). The application deadline is August 8, 2013.
