Paul Wolfowitz is never jobless for long.

The State Department announced yesterday that the former World Bank president will chair its International Security Advisory Board. He succeeds former Sen. Fred Thompson, who resigned last summer to launch his short-lived presidential campaign.

Wolfowitz left the World Bank in May, in the face of mounting criticism for his role in arranging promotions and salary hikes for his girlfriend, Shaha Riza. He had previously served as deputy defense secretary in the Bush administration, where he was known for his support of the Iraq war.

In his new post, he’ll advise the secretary of state on arms control and international security. Other members of the board include former Sen. Charles Robb; former CIA director R. James Woolsey; and James R. Schlesinger, who has headed the CIA, the Defense Department and Treasury.

Wolfowitz is also a visiting scholar at the conservative think tank, the American Enterprise Institute.
