The Center invites applications for a FULL PROFESSOR
Specialty: security implications of climate change

The College of Security Studies is searching for a world-class security practitioner and educator to teach, facilitate discussion, and conduct research on the security implications of climate change – particularly in the Indo-Pacific region.

Responsibilities for full professor faculty members include:

  • Educating, connecting, and empowering international and U.S. leaders and security practitioners on security issues
  • Making positive contributions to a collegial, team-centric working environment of transparency, mutual respect, and inclusion
  • Leading teams of peers to accomplish objectives
  • Creating and presenting executive education content that spurs discussion, reflection, and learning among the audience
  • Facilitating objective-based discussions among fellows that encourage consolidation of learning
  • Contributing to distinguished visitor engagements with subject matter expertise
  • Performing various administrative and institutional duties to support the executive education functions of the Daniel K. Inouye Asia-Pacific Center
  • Occasionally conducting official travel to engage with international and U.S. leaders and security practitioners
  • As assigned: developing, managing, coordinating, conducting and assessing all aspects of engagements, including courses, workshops, and dialogues

In this era of climate change, every aspect of security is affected by the changes in the environment. Climate change is exacerbating existing Indo-Pacific security challenges and introducing new, often under-appreciated, and potentially severe challenges to regional security, stability and prosperity. Access to food and water, viability of infrastructure, mass migration, ability to sustain livelihoods, and adequacy of energy resources are just some of the issues at stake. DKI APCSS is seeking a faculty member who can offer deep insight into climate change as a driver of Indo-Pacific regional security challenges: the predicted climate changes, how those changes might impact the people and nations of the region, and how fellows can conceptually frame the challenges in ways that help prepare them to best address the challenges.

Essential selection criteria for SECURITY IMPLICATIONS OF CLIMATE CHANGE full professor:

  • Strong grasp of climate change models and the environmental changes they predict
  • Deep understanding of how predicted environmental changes will impact traditional and non-traditional security factors: food, water, infrastructure, economy, energy, and weather among others
  • General understanding of Indo-Pacific security dynamics: current tension points, politics, inter-and intra-state relations, economics, energy resources, history, population/demographics, culture, etc.
  • Knowledge of key public and private actors and networks that can contribute to developing strategies to contend with climate-induced security challenges
  • Ability to recommend policy objectives to mitigate risks and adapt to climate change

The following are preferred attributes:

  • Doctoral or Master’s degree in a formal, natural or social scientific field (examples include but are not limited to Environmental Science, International Relations, Economics, Political Science)
  • Experience living or working in the Indo-Pacific Region
  • Proven ability in teaching and seminar facilitation
  • Proven ability to function as an effective, collaborative team member
  • S. citizen; or foreign national who has resided in the U.S. for three of the last five years and is eligible for H-1B work visa
  • If a male born after December 31, 1959, must certify registration with the Selective Service System, or be exempt from having to do so under the Selective Service Law

Desirable selection criteria:

  • Experience working in multinational settings at the operational, strategic, or policy level

Salary and rank are commensurate with qualifications. The salary range is $126,807 – $192,315 inclusive of locality pay (19.56%) and cost of living allowance (COLA), currently 10.28% but subject to change. All faculty at the Daniel K. Inouye Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies are employed on a limited term, excepted-service positions, for up to three years, with the possibility of renewal. Relocation expenses may be authorized.
