University of Sheffield

School of East Asian Studies

The School of East Asian Studies is bound together by a passionate belief in the importance of East Asia as the most dynamic region in the world. We seek to communicate and disseminate our expertise and knowledge of this region across the University of Sheffield as well as nationally and internationally with the goal of impacting on the understanding and behaviour of a range of individuals, groups and organizations.

We aim to create ambitious, successful and highly employable students who are culturally agile, global citizens. Through innovative teaching and cutting-edge research, we seek to create a vibrant intellectual culture and to focus on important cross-cutting themes that break down boundaries between the study of China, Japan and Korea so that staff and students alike can achieve their full potential.

Ultimately, we aim to maintain our position as a leading East Asian Studies department in the UK, Europe and the world in terms of learning, teaching and research.

In response to the growing worldwide interest in Korea, we are making a strategic appointment at Lecturer/Senior Lecturer level in Korean Studies to enhance and expand our excellent research and teaching. We welcome applications from scholars in any discipline within the broadly defined field of Korean Studies. We particularly welcome applicants with a cross-country/region-wide interest and in the disciplines of modern history and international relations. The successful appointee will make a strong contribution to the further development of our research activities, to the delivery of our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes and to the supervision and development of research students in cognate areas.
