After graduate school, Miller worked at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (Washington, DC) as an editor of the journal Holocaust and Genocide Studies. Since 1998, Miller has taught in the history department of McDaniel College in Westminster, Maryland (USA). In Fall 2003, Miller taught at McDaniel College’s Budapest Program. From 2004-05, he was a Fulbright fellow at the University of Sarajevo in Bosnia-Herzegovina, where he taught a course on twentieth-century genocide and published both academic and journalistic articles on genocide memory in the former Yugoslavia.

That work is provisionally entitled, It’s Nothing: The Sarajevo Assassination and the Origins of World War I (anticipated 2015). Miller has received additional support for this project from the U.S. National Endowment for the Humanities, the American Philosophical Society, and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.
Miller is currently completing an article entitled, Yugoslav Eulogies: The Footprints of Gavrilo Princip, which will be published in 2014 (prior to the centenary of the Sarajevo assassination) in both the University of Pittsburgh-based journal The Carl Beck Papers in Russian and East European Studies, as well as in the Belgrade-based journal Srpski knji�evni list (the latter in the Bosnian-Croatian-Serbian language).
