Adjunct Professors

SSI offers adjunct professorships to select LTCs or COLs in the Army National Guard (ARNG), U.S. Army Reserve (USAR), retired active component, and civilian scholars and practitioners. These are research positions with no teaching. The successful candidate will possess qualifications as outlined in Carlisle Barracks Memorandum 351-1 and will have the opportunity to advance his or her own research agenda while simultaneously producing SSI studies on relevant strategic topics which will be distributed to military leaders, government officials, civilian academics, and the global strategic community.

External Research Associates Program (ERAP)

The Strategic Studies Institute is no longer accepting solicitations. Please check back for 2014 openings.

ERAP is a contractual program (not an academic grant) whereby the U.S. Government pays for scholarly research and analysis on issues of concern to those institutions responsible for U.S. national security and strategy, but especially to the U.S. Army and to the Department of Defense. All international scholars and other experts who are not affiliated with the U.S. military, the U.S. Government, or for-profit consulting firms are eligible. The selection process is highly competitive, and interested parties are encouraged to refer to the USAWC's Key Strategic Issues List (KSIL), available online, for a range of relevant topics. The expected end-product of an ERAP contract is a well-written, well-researched monograph of 40-50 pages that contains substantive recommendations for U.S. policy; it is deliverable within one year of the date the contract is awarded. Payment occurs after the product has been received, reviewed, and accepted by SSI.

Unsolicited Submissions

If you are affiliated with the U.S. military, the U.S. Government, or for-profit consulting firms we are able to make your research available, but it is non-compensated and may or may not be an official SSI monograph. Submissions must be a response to one or more topics found in our annual Key Strategic Issues List. Researchers interested in submitting unsolicited manuscripts to be considered for publication must first send a resume/curriculum vitae to the Director of Research along with an abstract describing the paper's main argument and methodology as well as how the manuscript adds to the existing knowledge of the subject. Contact our Director of Research, Dr. Steven Metz, for more information.
