The USC Korean Studies Institute is accepting applications for its 2014-2015 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.

To apply, please send:

1) Letter of application
2) c.v.
3) Thesis abstract
4) Two letters of recommendation (to be sent directly by the referees)
5) A writing sample

All materials should be sent to:
