Former Secretary of Defense Ash Carter has a new job now that his service in the Pentagon has ended: a professorship at Harvard University.

The Cambridge, Mass. school announced in a press release that Carter will join its ranks as the Belfer Professor of Technology and Global Affairs and Director of the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs.

"I look forward to leading this vital center and helping develop the next generation of global leaders," Carter said.

"Technology has a fundamental role to play in solving some of our nations and other nations' most complex problems, and I look forward to working with the Kennedy School's world-class scholars and students to explore how innovation can advance the public good."

Carter's duties will include examining how innovation and technology can address challenges both in the U.S. and abroad.

Carter worked for Harvard in the 1980s and 1990s before joining the Clinton administration at the Pentagon. He returned to the Department of Defense in 2009 as an undersecretary, and was eventually promoted to defense secretary in 2015.

Last November, Cater dished out some advice to then President-elect Donald Trump.

"Finish the destruction of ISIL in Iraq and Syria. Continue to strike them elsewhere where they arise, like Libya and Afghanistan," Carter said.

"And then, above all, protect our own citizens and our own people, which is not simply a military task, but involves intelligence and law enforcement and homeland security."
