The United States Naval War College anticipates a full-time faculty opening in the Warfare

Analysis and Research (WAR) Department in Newport, RI, and invites applications for the position of

Professor with rank and salary commensurate with experience and credentials.

The Naval War College is a graduate-level Professional Military Education institution serving the nation, the Department of Defense and the U.S. Navy. The College is accredited by the New

England Association of Schools and Colleges, and offers a Master of Arts degree in National Security and Strategic Studies.


WAR conducts research, analysis, and war games to better understand future warfare at the strategic, operational, and tactical levels. Incumbent faculty lead, analyze, and disseminate the results of collaborative faculty/student research programs; conduct independent research; teach seminars of mid-grade and senior military officers; design and conduct war games and workshops; oversee and evaluate student written work; develop curricula; and provide recommendations to senior military leadership and their staffs with a focus on the intersection of defense policy, potential joint operations, and evolution of capabilities.


The incumbent will use his or her experience, background, training, and education to analyze joint, combined and naval dynamics in the Greater Middle East between US (and allied forces) and all potential adversaries. He or she should be broadly knowledgeable in the warfighting and Phase Zero military challenges facing the US and, in particular, the US Navy in areas including but not limited to the Persian Gulf, the Western Indian Ocean, and the Eastern Mediterranean.

Knowledge of naval and joint systems—or equivalent practical experience in advancing technology and functional capabilities— is desired for this position. Experience may have been gained by leading and conducting research, systems analysis, systems operation, and/or development and execution of warfighting operations, tactics, techniques, and procedures within the DoD environment. War gaming experience is useful.
