      Former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has been appointed professor of political science at Seoul National University, it said Wednesday.

      The chair is usually held by an individual with outstanding academic achievements or international reputation.

      At present, only 11 chair professors teach at SNU. Ban will advise master's and doctoral candidates on their research and coursework. His tenure started this month and ends in January 2025.

      Ban graduated from SNU in 1970 and went on to serve as Korea's foreign minister before heading the UN from 2007 to 2016.
