Kyujanggak Fellowship invitation for applications
Call for Applications
The Kyujanggak Institute for Korean Studies at Seoul National University invites applications for its 2008-09 postdoctoral Kyujanggak Fellowship program. The Institute will offer up to four awards, beginning in August 2008. Fellows are expected to arrive no later than September 2008, remain in residence for ten to twelve months, actively participate in the Institute’s colloquia and seminars, give a presentation, and publish an article in the peer-reviewed Seoul Journal of Korean Studies. The Seoul-California Series in Korean Studies will exercise right of first refusal of the book manuscript emerging from the fellowship. If accepted, the resulting book will be published in the Series, which is co-published by the University of California Press.

Candidates must have received their Ph.D. by time of appointment and be able to articulate an outstanding research agenda in the field of Korean Studies. While priority is given to those who have received their Ph.D.s within the last five years, junior faculty whose research directly pertains to the Kyujanggak collection are also welcome to apply. The committee pays special attention to those scholars who plan to make use of the Kyujanggak collection, but those working on contemporary Korea are also encouraged to apply.

The fellowship provides a total stipend of 30 million Korean won, disbursed in 10 monthly installments, on-campus housing (a family unit if requested), round-trip airfare, medical insurance, and a $1500 research grant. Fellows are also provided shared office space with computer, library access and other associated research assistance.

Deadline for receipt of applications is February 15, 2008. A decision will be announced by the end of March.

Inquiries should be directed to the program coordinator, Annie Koh, at The application form can be downloaded via the following links.
