International Faculty Positions at SNU College of Liberal Studies

Seoul Nation­al Uni­ver­si­ty seeks to fill two inter­na­tion­al fac­ul­ty posi­tions in its Col­lege of Lib­er­al Stud­ies. The Col­lege of Lib­er­al Stud­ies was cre­at­ed in 2009 and based on a mod­el in which stu­dents are encour­aged to pur­sue aca­d­e­m­ic careers in a vari­ety of tracks and declare majors only after one or two years of lib­er­al edu­ca­tion. Stu­dents are encour­aged to design cus­tomized cur­ric­u­la that may com­bine cours­es from more than one dis­ci­pline. This enables stu­dents to widen their insight across dis­ci­pli­nary bound­aries. (For more infor­ma­tion, see

The Col­lege of Lib­er­al Stud­ies does not rely on a fixed set of cours­es but offers instruc­tion in what are loose­ly defined as Select­ed Top­ics Sem­i­nars. For this rea­son, appli­cants for fac­ul­ty posi­tions are required to demon­strate their abil­i­ty to devel­op new cours­es with­in this scheme.

Qual­i­fi­ca­tions for the open posi­tions include a doc­tor­al degree, excel­lent com­pe­tence in oral and writ­ten Eng­lish, pub­li­ca­tions com­men­su­rate with rank, excel­lent teach­ing cre­den­tials, cit­i­zen­ship oth­er than that of the Repub­lic of Korea (inter­na­tion­al fac­ul­ty recruit­ment is intend­ed for schol­ars who are non-Kore­an cit­i­zens).

Appli­cants should sub­mit a per­son­al state­ment, two teach­ing plans for “Selected Top­ics Sem­i­nar II or III,” a research plan, and a cur­ricu­lum vitae (includ­ing a list of pub­lished mate­ri­als includ­ing books and papers, title of doc­to­r­i­al dis­ser­ta­tion, and con­tact infor­ma­tion for at least three pro­fes­sion­al ref­er­ences). The selec­tion process will empha­size course and research plans. Appli­cants cho­sen for fur­ther process will be informed.
