The James Joo-Jin Kim Program at the University of Pennsylvania announces two Moon Family Postdoctoral Fellowships in Korean Studies for the 2020–21 academic year. The postdoctoral fellowship is open to scholars who work in the humanities and social sciences, with research focused on Korea.

Each fellowship will cover the 12-month period between August 1, 2020 and July 31, 2021 and provide a stipend of $51,510 as well as conference travel funds up to $2,000. The Kim Program will cover the cost of the fellow’s health insurance (including medical, dental, vision, and life). The postdoctoral fellow will also receive an office space and access to libraries and other resources at Penn. The fellowship may be renewed for a second year, based on satisfactory performance, the existence of funding, and programmatic need.

Each fellow will be required to: 1) reside in the Philadelphia area; 2) teach two courses, one in Fall 2020 and the other in Spring 2021; 3) give a public presentation for the Korean Studies Colloquium; 4) mentor the Kim Program undergraduate fellows; 5) participate in the Kim Program events and related activities at Penn; and 6) organize a Korean Studies Conference (either in Fall 2020 or in Spring 2021).


Research fields supported by this fellowship are in the humanities and social sciences. Applicants must have received their Ph.D. degree within five (5) years of the postdoctoral appointment year (in July 2015 or later). The applicant who is awarded the fellowship must complete all requirements for the Ph.D. degree (dissertation deposited) by July 31, 2020.
