Standard Summary:

This function is used for individuals who come from outside the UW System for temporary academic assignments. Normally, the prefix will be comparable to the rank held at the individual's home institution. There may be cases where an individual's assignment at the institution is temporary, but no "home institution" is involved. In those instances, a visiting faculty title may still be used, with the appropriate level determined by the department executive committee after reviewing the individual's credentials in comparison with similarly qualified members of the institution's faculty. Documentation supporting the selection of a visiting title must be provided to the appropriate dean's or director's office. Generally, such appointments do not last longer than one year and may not exceed two years without the approval of the Chancellor or his/her designee. Modified professorial functions have four prefixes or levels: Instructor, Assistant Professor, Associate Professor and Professor. The specific definition of each level for professorial academic staff titles is left to the purview of each unit in which the title is employed. However, differences between successively higher title levels must reflect demonstrable differences in experience and knowledge gained, applied to the specific duties of the function.

 

Education:

Required:  MA or equivalent in Asian Studies or related field with a specialization in Korea

 

Additional Information:

The typical starting salary for this position is between $50,000 and $90,000 but is negotiable based on experience and qualifications.
