The Department of Defense Analysis at the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School invites applications from candidates for a tenure-track position. Above all, the department seeks a candidate who can apply the methodologies of his or her discipline in rigorous and innovative ways to the study of military and security affairs. Preference will be given for expertise in network analysis and design thinking (exemplified in the study of networks, organizations, or strategy). The department’s teaching and research programs are interdisciplinary, as are its faculty. Candidates from a broad range of disciplinary backgrounds will be considered. For example candidates may hold a Ph.D. in anthropology with specialization in complex human systems; in sociology with specialization in social network analysis; in business with specializations in strategic management and change management; in psychology with specialization in small-group dynamics; in geography with specialization in global information systems; in political science with specialization in the design of governance systems and institutions; or other related fields.
Primary duties include: 1) instruction for the Defense Analysis Department, including courses that build on the department’s methodological expertise in design thinking, social network analysis, geospatial analysis, and ethnography; 2) research that supports the department’s two primary sponsors: US Special Operations Command and the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy; and 3) supervising thesis work by students called upon to address the complicated problems that US security personnel and their allies face in the 21st Century.
NPS is a fully accredited graduate school with students from all U.S. services, as well as foreign military officers. Our department offers an M.S. in Defense Analysis. Successful candidates will have a strong research program and be able to teach at the high level expected by professional military officers. A completed Ph.D. is strongly preferred, and U.S. citizenship is required. Candidates in the final phases of completing their dissertations will also be considered. Salary is highly competitive and includes a generous locality allowance.
