Minju Kim is assistant professor of political science. She studies bureaucrats as individuals in domestic and international institutions.

Her book project, titled, “The Forging of Bureaucratic Partisanship: Evidence from US Foreign Policy,” examines how institutional designs affect the behavior of bureaucrats and how the implementation of foreign policy by bureaucrats shapes the way the government responds to globalization. Her work has been supported by the Center for International Social Science Research at the University of Chicago and the Stigler Center at the Booth School of Business, among others.

Before joining Syracuse University, Kim was a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Commerce and Diplomacy in the University of California, San Diego’s School of Global Policy and Strategy. She earned a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago in 2021.
