The Army Cyber Institute at the United States Military Academy (USMA) seeks applicants for research faculty members in mathematical disciplines within the cyber domain (e.g., mathematics, operations research, data science, machine learning, statistics, network science) in the rank of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Full Professor (USMA offers renewable contracts in lieu of tenure). USMA, the oldest engineering school in the nation, is situated 50 miles north of New York City in the picturesque Hudson Valley and offers a Tier I undergraduate program devoted to educating leaders of character committed to the values of Duty, Honor, and Country. USMA’s rigorous programs, quality faculty, and student-to-faculty ratio of 12:1 attract a student body of 4,400 of the nation's best. The Army Cyber Institute (ACI) is a team of civilian and military faculty and staff members who are a national resource for research, advice, and education in the cyber domain -- engaging military, government, academic, nonprofit, and industrial cyber communities for the purpose of enabling effective Army cyber operations. The ACI embraces an interdisciplinary cyber viewpoint. ACI faculty members generally teach half time and conduct relevant research, outreach, and professional service as the remainder of their duties. Preferred applicants will hold an advanced degree (Ph.D.) in a cyber-related technical field. Previous work, research, and teaching experience in a cyber-related discipline is beneficial. We are looking for passionate cyber professionals capable of conducting and leading relevant research, serving as an outstanding teacher and mentor to students (both in and outside the classroom), contributing to the development of junior faculty members, and advancing institute and academy governance. The twelve month salaries are competitive.
The primary responsibility of a faculty member / research fellow at the Army Cyber Institute is to conduct innovative research on topics related to operations in the cyber domain. Additional duties include teaching undergraduate courses. These courses vary from undergraduate introductory courses to advanced level courses to cadet capstone projects. The subject matter for teaching courses will vary based on department and applicant’s academic background, but applicants should be well-versed in how aspects of their discipline contribute to information assurance and security in the cyber domain. The position will be required to teach a minimum number of sections each academic year, and the primary workplace will be at the Army Cyber Institute, working on cyber-related research in small military-civilian teams. Faculty members are expected to continuously participate and develop in the areas of teaching, scholarship, service and Academy governance, cadet (student) development, and faculty development.
