Founded in 2015, Indiana University's Institute for Korean Studies (IKS) promotes interdisciplinary approaches to the understanding of Korea, on campus and beyond, focusing upon the advancement of cultural fluency by providing programs for students, faculty, and the community. The IKS is housed within the Hamilton Lugar School of Global and International Studies (HLS). HLS has a dual emphasis that distinguishes it from other schools in the United States, placing equal emphasis on cultural fluency and applied social policy. To influence and change U.S. and transnational businesses, governments, and nonprofits, our students and faculty need to understand the languages, literatures, and ways of life of various parts of the world, in addition to critical issues, such as global governance, security, trade and development, human rights, migration, health, and climate change, that transcend any one nation or region.
The Institute for Korean Studies (IKS) at Indiana University is now accepting applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the 2023-24 academic year. The Fellow should conduct research related to Korea.
