Adjunct Professor of the Practice of National Security Policy
The Sanford School of Public Policy at Duke University invites seasoned national security policy professionals to apply for several teaching positions in an exciting new hybrid Executive Masters of National Security Policy for mid-career students seeking to advance in their leadership roles in the national security policy realm in the public and private sectors. Selected candidates will work with existing Duke faculty to build an ambitious new program and stand up the new degree curriculum. They also will have the opportunity to participate in the American Grand Strategy and Counterterrorism and Public Policy Fellows Programs, and collaborate with the Sanford School’s national security faculty on related policy and research projects and proposals.
Applicants may apply to teach one or more classes and may retain professional engagement elsewhere while teaching in the program. The full course list is here; courses of particular need are National Security Leadership, National Security Ethics, National Security Budgeting, National Security Institutions. As a hybrid program responsibilities include teaching synchronously online, building asynchronous online content, and occasional on-campus immersion sessions. Some classes will start in the summer of 2022, and some in the subsequent semesters of the academic year 2022/2023. The positions will allow for some preparation time in advance of class launches.
Applicants should have a Master’s degree or higher and substantial professional experience in such areas of national security policy and policymaking as defense, diplomacy, development, leadership, ethics, cyber, technology, terrorism, biological threats, and/or global environment. Experience creating and executing applied learning experiences such as simulations, war games, table-top exercises, and leading client-based research programs is a plus, as is online teaching experience. Policy research and writing are of interest, but not required.
Applicants may reside in NC or in any of the partner states with which Duke has employment agreements (California, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, New York, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Washington DC).
