KDI (Korea Development Institute) School of Public Policy and Management invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track faculty position at all levels in Social and Welfare Policy. KDI was ranked 1st in Asia and 5th among non-U.S. think tanks in the 2020 Global Think Tank Index and the School has a vibrant and diverse academic community with some 140 countries represented among our student body and alumni. KDI School is the only international policy school with NASPAA recognition in Korea and the first in East Asia.
We seek applications from scholars who conduct research in topics including social policy, welfare policy, fiscal policy, and public finance. Successful candidates should have strong training in applied empirical methodology, substantive interests in policy-relevant research, and a teaching portfolio that can suit the needs of an international public policy school with a diverse student body.
As a graduate-level international policy school, we offer master’s and Ph.D. programs focusing on public policy, development policy, and public management. The normal class teaching load is four courses per year spread out over three trimesters and courses are taught in English. The School provides internationally competitive compensation, faculty housing options (when available), child education benefits (where applicable), moving expense support, generous research funding opportunities, and conference travel support.
The KDI School campus offers unparalleled access to South Korea’s policy and research leaders, given its location in the city of Sejong, the administrative capital of South Korea, and home to the National Research Complex that incorporates sixteen leading national policy research institutes. Sejong is connected to Seoul via a high-speed train system with about an hour of travel time, and to all of the other major cities with a travel time of less than two hours.
As a school dedicated to mentoring a diverse student body, many of whom come from developing countries, we especially encourage applications from candidates who appreciate diversity in their teaching and research. KDI School is an equal opportunity employer, and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, or any other characteristics protected by law.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. or should be expecting to receive one by August 31, 2022 in one of the above-mentioned academic fields.
