We are delighted to welcome a new Visiting Fellow to the University of Bath Institute for Policy Research (IPR), as a recipient of the Korean Government Overseas Fellowship.

Young Cheol Ji is Director of the Labour Market Analysis Division for the Ministry of Employment and Labour in the Republic of Korea.

During his time at the IPR, he will undertake a new research project entitled ‘Study of UK labour market conditions and employment quality indicators’, a comparative study between the UK and Korean labour market, and employment quality indicators.

In doing so, Young Cheol Ji seeks to discover policy implications and suggestions for developing new employment quality indicators, to support the Korean government’s efforts in creating new jobs.

Director of the IPR, Professor Nick Pearce, adds:

"We are pleased to welcome Young Cheol Ji to the IPR team as a new Visiting Fellow."

"With his excellent research and professional experience, we look forward to collaborating with him, and seeing the results of his research project on UK and Korean labour market conditions".
