United States Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs. The Department of Behavioral Sciences & Leadership (DFBL) anticipates filling at least two full-time faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level.

The U.S. Air Force Academy, located just north of Colorado Springs, Colorado, is an undergraduate institution that awards the Bachelor of Science degree as part of its mission to educate, train, and inspire men and women to become officers of character, motivated to lead in the United States Air Force and in service to our nation. Faculty applications are invited from candidates who can contribute to this mission by interacting with cadets, both in and out of the classroom, as instructors and mentors. The student body consists of approximately 4,000 men and women representing every state and several foreign countries. The Academy faculty is an integrated group of military and civilian educators. The curriculum includes core academic and professional courses, and 27 disciplinary and interdisciplinary majors.
The United States Air Force Academy is dedicated to the goal of building a pluralistic faculty committed to a multicultural environment that enriches the educational experience of our students. Hence, we are especially interested in candidates whose teaching, life experience, and/or research interests contribute to a climate that values and uses diversity in all its forms. Essential qualities expected of every faculty member include the personal attributes of integrity, industry, cooperation, initiative, and breadth of intellectual interests.
Salaries are competitive, include a cost-of-living adjustment, and also cover non-teaching summer months. Interested persons should submit a curriculum vitae; a statement of interest that addresses the ways in which the applicant’s qualifications meet the requirements of the ad, to include evidence of teaching excellence, promise of research productivity, and commitment to diversity/inclusion; and a listing of at least three references that we may contact later in the review process.
