Applicants should be well-versed in the theory and practice of national and/or homeland security and be prepared to contribute to the School’s instructional programs at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Successful applicants will demonstrate the potential to teach effectively in a professional school of international affairs at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
