The U.S. Naval War College, Newport, RI, invites applications for faculty appointments, open with respect to rank, in the Strategy and Policy Department. The Department seeks candidates with scholarly attainment, teaching experience, and particular expertise in the fields of war studies, international relations, international security affairs, political economy, regional studies, diplomatic and international history, or naval and military history. These positions are subject to final approval on funding. Responsibilities include teaching courses in strategy, conducting research, engaging in service of benefit to the College, and participating in outreach activities. Anticipated starting date is August 2013.
The Naval War College provides a one-year professional military education program to senior officers of all the armed services and civilians from a number of U.S. government agencies, leading to an M.A. in National Security and Strategic Studies. Military officers from more than fifty countries also form part of the student body. The strategy courses use strategic theory, the history of war, and an examination of current-day conflicts to develop critical analytical skills for understanding the interrelationship of policy aims, strategy, and military operations. The interdisciplinary nature of the strategy courses requires that faculty members develop a breadth of knowledge well beyond their primary area of specialization. Additional details regarding the Naval War College and the Strategy and Policy Department curriculum can be obtained by visiting the Naval War College website at http://www.usnwc.edu/Departments—Colleges/Strategy-and-Policy.aspx.
