The position involves serving as colleagues within the university and as active advocates for the IA program to the Intelligence Community. The successful candidate must understand, embrace and advocate the program's multi-disciplinary approach. JMU is committed to enhancing campus diversity and creating a more inclusive and diverse institution. The successful candidate will have experience and demonstrated results of successful leadership in a diverse community.
The position is a 9-month appointment with a typical teaching load of 3 courses per semester. At least half of the annual six-course load will be in advanced critical thinking (hypothesis testing, causal analysis, futures analysis and strategy assessment). The remaining courses will depend on the successful candidate's expertise and support the core of the IA program. Also, depending on their interest and background, the successful candidate may have opportunities to satisfy part of their course load in the Geographic Science (GS) or Integrated Science and Technology (ISAT) undergraduate programs that are housed in the same department as IA. The position requires an active program of scholarly activity that enriches the undergraduate program and advances the field of intelligence analysis.
The ideal candidate will have substantial experience as all-source intelligence analysts, demonstrated ability in teaching or training and expertise in analytical methodologies. A Ph.D. is desirable (and required for a tenure-track appointment), but qualified candidates with a Master's degree and substantial experience in the field are also strongly encouraged to apply for the position (on a 3 year Renewable Term contract). Minorities, women and veterans are strongly encouraged to apply.
