The U.S. Air Force Culture and Language Center at Air University invites applications for a social/behavioral scientist at the academic rank of Assistant Professor. The successful applicant will join a growing interdisciplinary department that develops cross-culturally competent military personnel. We seek an individual with research and instructional expertise in cross-cultural communication. A Ph.D. in a relevant discipline (e.g.; anthropology, communication, sociology, etc.) is required, as well as evidence of teaching and research excellence.
The successful applicant will have a strong teaching record, including experience in distance learning. The ideal individual will excel at translating scholarly concepts to professional students in ways that ensure both rigor and utility. S/he must also have conducted extended, grounded qualitative field research in cross-cultural communication that has resulted in appropriate scholarly and/or policy publications. The incumbent will possess both a deep knowledge of the issues, cultures and communication habit(s) of their region of study, as well as the aptitude to develop/deliver general, transferable interpersonal communication frameworks and skills that students can employ anywhere they are deployed. Prior military service and/or experience with military personnel is/are advantageous, but not necessary. Active participation in scholarly and professional organizations is desirable, as is a commitment to inter-disciplinary cooperation.
Teaching will include developing curricula; leading seminars; facilitating on-line programs and delivering lectures; conducting faculty development; advising student research; and assessing student learning. While the focus of the position is on graduate-level professional education, the incumbent will also instruct a large on-line course at the undergraduate level and contribute scholarly guidance to the development of pre-deployment training. Research will include designing and conducting original scholarly studies and publishing results in academic and professional fora. Service will include vetting organizational products; academic committee work; and establishing/maintaining professional relationships with colleagues across and outside of Air University.
Air University is a Level V post-secondary institution accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. We are located on Maxwell Air Force Base, adjacent to historic Montgomery, Alabama. Students include officer and enlisted members of the US Air Force and other Services, representatives of allied armed forces and government civilians.
