The Korea Society announces the Sherman Emerging Scholar Lecture Series, with a search for scholars who have completed or are near Korea-related dissertation completion, but are in advance of tenure-track professorships. The Society, the United States’ foremost educational non-profit educating Americans on Korea, founded sixty years ago, solicits applications from applicants studying Korea in the areas of international relations, political science, business, arts and culture. Applications consist of an introductory letter, curriculum vitae, statement of research, proposed topic for presentation at the Korea Society, and two letters of recommendations. The Society selects one scholar annually, with an announcement of the recipient in mid-March. The awardee appears late spring or early fall in presentation in New York, and the award carries an honorarium. Applicants may submit the required materials to Dr. Stephen Noerper, senior director at the Korea Society, 950 Third Avenue, Fl8, New York, NY, 10022 with a deadline of February 1, 2017. With the generous support of the Sherman family, the award seeks to identify and encourage thought leaders on Korean affairs from academe and research institutions in the United States.
