Military Faculty Positions
We are interested in qualified officers (usually captains at the 5-7 years time-in-service mark) that hold an undergraduate degree in either chemistry, chemical engineering, or biology, to attend two years of graduate school for the purpose of obtaining a master’s degree in a chemistry, chemical engineering, or life science related field, followed by a three-year assignment to the Department of Chemistry and Life Science as one of our rotating faculty. Selection is based on a successful career, including company (battery, troop) command, undergraduate performance, GRE scores, and your willingness to participate in the program. All instructors teach at least one year in the general chemistry course to plebes (freshmen), and may, based on their interest level, branch out to teach an electives course.
