The Opportunity

The Korean Studies Program http://artsonline.monash.edu.au/Korean/ seeks to fill a continuing position to be taken up (preferably) by July 2016. 

As the appointee to this position, you will be expected to have a dynamic research and teaching profile. We seek candidates with a strong track record in a Korea-related field of research and with experience in teaching Korean language and Korean studies or a related field such as media, politics, history or sociology with a focus on Korea. This open field search welcomes applications from candidates in all areas of specialisation but research/teaching expertise in contemporary popular culture will be assets for the position.  

We expect candidates to show evidence of a strong interest in interdisciplinary research and have native or near native proficiency in English and Korean. Candidates must have previous experience of teaching Korean studies or a related field, (whether of culture, history, society or politics) at the tertiary level. 

As the successful applicant, you will be expected to contribute to teaching in the undergraduate language program. You will also undertake research supervision of graduate students; engage in original and innovative research; be prepared to collaborate in research, team teaching and curriculum development. You will also be expected to undertake a share of administrative tasks within the program and/or school.

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.

Your application must address the selection criteria. Please refer to the page How to apply for Monash Jobs
