Between 1981 and 1993 he served as a senior reserves officer in the Israeli military intelligence, working on the Iraqi political system and military.  At the University of Haifa, Dr. Baram has served as Chair of the Department of Middle East History and as Director of the Jewish-Arab Center and the Institute of Middle Eastern Studies. He is the founder and current Director of the Center for Iraq Studies.
