They will teach one graduate level course, also open to advanced undergraduates, in the area of intelligence and national security, and will be expected to attend and participate in Institute-sponsored events including public and private seminars, panels, conferences, research colloquia, and meetings. We will consider applications from American and foreign students. The position will be compensated at a salary of $75,000 plus benefits. Application materials should include a CV, a research statement, a cover letter, a letter of recommendation, and a list of two additional academic references whom we will contact. Materials should be sent as one .pdf attachment via email to Assistant Director Ingrid Gerstmann at ig79@columbia.edu.
