By most indications, the U.S. university system is producing more PhDs than the market for research positions demands given current levels of funding for research, both by government and by the private sector. A major reason for this overproduction is that demand is based on the need to staff labs of faculty researchers with graduate students and postdocs, not upon demand for future researchers.

In 2007, the U.S. Army introduced its newest counterinsurgency weapon into Iraq and Afghanistan: civilian social scientists. As members of the Human Terrain System (HTS), the social scientists are embedded in combat brigades, where they provide commanders with research and advice. HTS has been controversial from the start; many social scientists attack it for melding academia and national security and for violating research ethics codes. In this talk, I historicize HTS within the broader context of the relationship between social science and national security policy since the 1950s.
