As the Institute for Basic Science has several hundred researchers from a variety of nations outside Korea, we have several support systems in place to make sure you thrive while living in Korea, and not simply survive. Every research center has admin staff who can meet you in person. IBS also provides email and telephone support via the Global Help Desk, commonly written as GHD. There are several support books, including the completely rewritten Living in Korea. This book is available at your Center’s admin office and as a PDF download at the bottom of this page. Some of the contents were selected and are displayed in the following pages. A new dedicated support website will be coming later this year and an announcement will be placed in the IBS portal when it is available. We have you find the information interesting and useful as well as a positive assistance for when you need it the most.
The content on this page has been taken from the 2019 edition of Living in Korea. The book was created in support of our international researchers and has been completely rewritten. The book is available as a 6 MB download here and in paperback form in IBS Centers.
