USNA Reserve Recall

Reserve Recall Opportunities

The U.S. Naval Academy has a need for qualified Navy reserve officers, especially at the ranks of LT, LCDR, and CDR, to instruct in academic departments and serve as outstanding military role models for midshipmen. Successful candidates will have at least a master’s degree in an appropriate academic discipline. Orders will commence in July 2021 and last for 3 years.

Recall Opportunities

Recall Opportunities will be considered for all academic departments at USNA, however a  primary driver for selection will be active duty manning shortages at the time of selection. 

In order to apply, the following are required:

-a cover letter stating which department(s) you are applying for and what makes you qualified for that position

-an accompanying civilian resume of experience (academic, professional, and naval experience, including any recent mobilizations, recalls, or extended active duty periods)

-copies of the three most recent FITREPs with ALL social security numbers REMOVED (3 DIFFERENT PLACES YOU NEED TO BLACK OUT).

-Academic transcripts

Once you have these documents, complete the application.  Your application will be reviewed for completeness and the board will convene in January.

Applications and Selection

To receive full consideration, interested officers for Academic Years 2022-2025 should apply no later than December 31, 2020.  Officers selected will be recalled to active duty and assigned orders for an officer-instructor three year tour commencing July 2021.  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 that 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.  Final arrangements are contingent upon PCS funding being available through the Navy.
