Naval Academy seeks Reserve instructors

By Lt. Teng Ooi and retired Navy Capt. Linda Beltra

Attention Navy Reserve officers: Are you interested in an opportunity to teach, inspire and empower the next generation of American leaders to serve our nation?

The U.S. Naval Academy needs qualified Navy Reserve officers, especially at the ranks of lieutenant, lieutenant commander and commander, with at least a master's degree in an appropriate academic discipline to instruct in designated academic departments for Fall 2015, and to serve as outstanding military role models and mentors for midshipmen.

Recall opportunities will be considered for the following disciplines: cyber security, information systems and information technology; electrical engineering, computer engineering, general engineering, nuclear engineering, mechanical engineering, naval architecture, ocean engineering, aerospace engineering, and control systems engineering; mathematics, chemistry, physics, computer science, and oceanography; political science, economics, English, history, and foreign language (Spanish, French, German, Russian, Arabic, Chinese, or Japanese).

Interested Navy reservists should email the following:

· A cover letter that states which discipline(s) you are applying for and your qualifications for the position
· A resume of experience (academic, professional, and naval experience, including any recent mobilizations, recalls, or extended active duty periods)
· A full-length khaki photo

Fax: (410) 293-2591

To receive full consideration, interested officers for Academic Year 2015-2016 should apply no later than Dec. 15, 2014. Officers selected will be recalled to active duty and assigned orders for an officer-instructor tour, not to exceed three years, commencing July 2015. Recalled officers will remain on the Reserve active status list and will remain eligible for promotion consideration before Reserve selection boards.

Selections will be made only after USNA placement officers are confident USNA billets will not be filled from the active-duty pool of potential officer instructors. Applicants will be made aware of their selection status by mid-April 2015. Final arrangements are contingent upon PCS funding being available through the Navy.
