One vis­it­ing pro­fes­sor will be appoint­ed for the 2014–15 aca­d­e­m­ic year, dur­ing which he or she will be expect­ed to teach one course per semes­ter in the co-hosting aca­d­e­m­ic depart­ment. The appoint­ment is expect­ed to begin on July 1, 2014.

This vis­it­ing appoint­ment is open to schol­ars in all dis­ci­plines who are engaged in teach­ing and research about Korea. Pref­er­ence will be giv­en to appli­cants whose research and teach­ing inter­ests sig­nif­i­cant­ly enhance or expand the cur­rent fac­ul­ty exper­tise and offer­ings of the Har­vard Kore­an Stud­ies pro­gram. It will be at an aca­d­e­m­ic rank com­men­su­rate with that held by the appointee at his or her home insti­tu­tion. A Ph.D. and evi­dence of suc­cess­ful teach­ing and research are required.

The stipend will be com­men­su­rate with the appointee’s home insti­tu­tion salary, and the posi­tion is ben­e­fits eli­gi­ble. The vis­it­ing pro­fes­sor will have shared office space and will enjoy full access to the University’s library, archival, and com­put­ing resources.

To apply, sub­mit the fol­low­ing mate­ri­als through the ARIeS por­tal no lat­er than Jan­u­ary 15, 2014: a let­ter of appli­ca­tion describ­ing one’s suit­abil­i­ty for the vis­it­ing pro­fes­sor­ship and research inter­ests; a cur­ricu­lum vitae with a list of pub­li­ca­tions; a sam­ple of one’s pub­lished work; a teach­ing port­fo­lio, includ­ing a state­ment on teach­ing expe­ri­ence and syl­labi for two cours­es; and names and con­tact infor­ma­tion of three ref­er­ences. Three let­ters of rec­om­men­da­tion are required, and the appli­ca­tion is com­plete only when all three let­ters have been sub­mit­ted.
