The Underwood International College of Yonsei University is conducting a search for 10 two-year renewable postdoctoral fellowships with rank of Assistant Professor. Two of these positions are reserved for teaching philosophy/critical reasoning, and we invite applications for these.

Successful candidates for the philosophy/critical reasoning positions will be principally responsible for teaching critical reasoning, but will also have the opportunity to teach philosophy courses within the common curriculum.

Applicants must have degree in hand by the beginning of appointment.

Qualified candidates may have the option of serving as residential advisors, receiving fully-subsidized housing. The starting date is either March or September 2013.
Yonsei University's Underwood International College is a highly competitive program at South Korea's most prestigious private university, and combines the intimate atmosphere and low student-faculty ratio of a liberal arts college with the resources of a major research university. All instruction is in English, and the student body represents over 40 different countries.
Interested applicants should send a letter of application, dissertation abstract, c.v. and a statement of teaching philosophy by email (email@example.com) before Nov. 15th.
