JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, TEXAS (AFNS) — Eligible active duty officers interested in U.S. Air Force Academy instructor opportunities have until Aug. 31 to apply, Air Force Personnel Center officials announced.

“This special duty assignment is a controlled, three-year maximum tour and officers must be released by their Air Force Personnel Center core officer assignment team in order to compete,” said Angel Espinosa, the AFPC Air Force Academy faculty assignments chief.

To be eligible applicants must be first lieutenants through lieutenant colonels with three or more years time on station between June 1 and Dec. 1, 2013. If overseas, applicants must be eligible to return from overseas between May and December 2013.

Eligible officers may apply for dean of faculty, preparatory school and athletic department positions. Limited positions at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., and the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis, Md., are also available.

“As expressed in the USAFA mission statement, this is a great opportunity for officers interested in educating, training and inspiring men and women to become officers of character,” Espinosa said.

Applications, due to the AFPC Academic and Special Utilization Branch, must include a completed Air Force Form 3849, PME/AFIT/RTFB Officer Worksheet, he added. AFPC will notify officers selected by Jan. 15, 2013.
