The position is open to all candidates who have attained a Ph.D. degree, and to advanced doctoral students who expect to be granted their Ph.D. no later than June 30, 2020.

Job requirements:

Responsibilities include the teaching of required and elective courses in the candidate’s field(s) of specialization (at the B.A. and M.A. levels). Successful candidates are expected to conduct independent and original research at the highest academic level based on sources in their original language, demonstrate academic leadership, compete for Israeli and international research grants, initiate and lead various activities in the Department’s China or Korea section, and work cooperatively with colleagues in the Faculty of Humanities and the University at large.

The Hebrew University’s primary language of instruction is Hebrew. However, in the China section of the Asian Studies Department, courses at the M.A./Ph.D. levels are normally taught in English. Candidates should therefore be prepared to teach advanced courses in English.
