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 number of strategic appointments. This is an exciting opportunity to join the School of East Asian Studies and make a substantial contribution to the expanding Korean language programme. You will work closely with colleagues to plan, prepare, deliver and develop our undergraduate Korean language programme. The School welcomes applications from candidates who are fluent speakers of English and Korean and have extensive experience of teaching the Korean language in a Western tertiary system. You will have a good honours degree in a relevant subject area (or equivalent experience) and have a proven teaching ability, ideally with a teaching qualification. An MA or PhD in a field related to Korean Language and Linguistics is desirable.

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.

We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
