Opportunities for Commissioned Officers

Working at the U.S. Military Academy (USMA) at West Point is a personally and professionally rewarding experience. West Point employs a number of military staff and faculty in a variety of roles - both inside and outside of the classroom. Regardless of the position, teaching at USMA means developing the next generation of Army officer as well as being part of the intellectual center of the Army at a unique, historic post about one hour from New York City.
