Naval War College

[Department Website][APSA elisting(requires membership)] STRATEGIC STUDIES/WAR STUDIES The U.S. Naval War College, Newport, RI, invites applications for faculty appointments, open with respect to rank, in the Strategy and Policy (S&P) Department. The Department seeks accomplished scholars or practitioners with particular expertise in any of the following fields: strategic studies; war studies; international relations; regional studies; diplomatic, military, or naval history; strategic and theater-strategic planning and politico-military affairs. These appointments are subject to the availability of funds to the Naval War College as a result of the DoD budget process. Anticipated starting date is 1 August 2006. The Naval War College provides a one-year professional military education course to senior and intermediate level officers of all the armed services and civilians from a number of U.S. government agencies. The course leads to certification as having completed Joint Professional Military Education I or II as appropriate and to an M.A. in National Security and Strategic Studies. Military officers from more than fifty countries also form part of the student body in both the senior and intermediate level programs. The Strategy and Policy Course, one of the three core courses in the programs of study at the Naval War College, uses strategic theory and the history of war to develop leaders who are strategically minded, critical thinkers by providing the analytical competencies that are fundamental to understanding the complex relationship among policy aims, strategy, and military operations. The interdisciplinary character of the Strategy and Policy Course requires that faculty members develop a breadth of knowledge well beyond their primary area of academic expertise. Additional information about the Strategy and Policy Department and the Naval War College can be found by visiting the College’s website at www.nwc.navy.mil.
