The School of East Asian Studies is bound together by a passionate belief in the importance of East Asia as the most dynamic
region in the world. We seek to communicate and disseminate our expertise and knowledge of this region across the
University of Sheffield as well as nationally and internationally with the goal of impacting on the understanding and behaviour of a range of individuals, groups and organizations.

We aim to create ambitious, successful and highly employable students who are culturally agile, global citizens. Through
innovative teaching and cutting-edge research, we seek to create a vibrant intellectual culture and to focus on important
cross-cutting themes that break down boundaries between the study of China, Japan and Korea so that staff and students
alike can achieve their full potential.

Ultimately, we aim to maintain our position as a leading East Asian Studies department in the UK, Europe and the world in
terms of learning, teaching and research.

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a
competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.

We believe in the power of diversity to help us address big global challenges and aim to actively build diverse teams. We
know that when people come together with different views, approaches and insights it leads to richer, more creative and
innovative teaching and research, better understanding of student needs and aspirations and the highest level of student
experience. We particularly welcome candidates from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds. All appointments will
be based on merit.
