Pyongyang university no longer seeking American volunteers

Amid chronic staff shortages and travel ban, PUST releases call for non-U.S. faculty

A recent travel ban issued by President Donald Trump means that an international Christian university in Pyongyang is no longer seeking American volunteers, a recruitment notice seen by NK News on Tuesday reads.

The ban, which Pyongyang University of Science and Technology (PUST) says now affects up to half of their faculty, prohibits U.S. citizens from visiting the DPRK.
