The USC Korean Studies Institute is accepting applications for its 2015-2016 postdoctoral fellows program. The postdoctoral program is open to scholars from all fields whose research pertains to Korea or involves Korea as part of a larger comparative or interdisciplinary research. We particularly encourage proposals from the social sciences and non-traditional fields, such as Korean-American studies.
In addition to a salary and benefits, the KSI will provide a fellow with shared office space at the KSI and a small research budget. The fellow is expected to participate in Institute programs and support the activities of the KSI. The fellow must have a Ph.D. in hand and should be within 5 years of having received the Ph.D. by the beginning of the appointment.

1) Letter of application
3) Thesis abstract
4) A writing sample
5) Two letters of recommendation*
