Former Defense Secretary James Mattis is going back to work at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, The Hill is reporting.

Mattis, who left his Cabinet post in December, had worked at the institution before joining the administration, according to The Hill. He will start work there again May 1 as the Davies Family distinguished fellow.  

"I have long relied on the work of Hoover to supplement my understanding of the critical challenges facing our country and to help guide tough decisions," Mattis said. "I believe we have an obligation to pass on the lessons we've learned so that future generations can study, learn, and become better. Hoover has made this part of its mission, and I look forward to returning."

Mattis has announced his resignation as defense secretary due to the President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw American troops from Syria.

"The wealth of knowledge and experience of an already extraordinary career has been made even richer by Gen. Mattis' latest endeavor as secretary of defense, and we are fortunate to once again be beneficiaries of his acumen," Hoover Director Tom Gilligan said.
