by dsuchens

Here’s a great opportunity for two scholars to join a world-class research community in a prime location. Do you (or someone you know) have years of experience in warfare analysis, excellent critical thinking skills, and a desire to work closely with the best in the field? Getting tired of a Beltway commute or working from a remote location, and/or want to have access to the Greater Boston Area academic community? If so, one of these two professorships could be the perfect job for you…

Be sure to apply well in advance of the 8 September 2017 application deadline!
