Former U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman has been appointed a professor at Yeshiva University for the coming school year.

The private New York university named him the Joseph Lieberman Chair in Public Policy and Public Service.

He'll teach an undergraduate course and give three public lectures on topics ranging from Judaism and public service to the Middle East.

Lieberman represented Connecticut in the U.S. Senate from 1989 to 2013.

He was Democrat Al Gore's running mate during the 2000 presidential campaign but was re-elected to the Senate as an independent in 2006.

Lieberman received an honorary doctorate from Yeshiva in 1989 for his leadership in Jewish and civic affairs.

The position was established through a gift from Ira and Ingeborg Rennert. Ira Rennert is a billionaire junk bond investor.
