Sgt Bowe Bergdahl will return to active military duty at the end of his reintegration process, the US Army has said.
Bowe Bergdahl, who was held captive for five years by the Taliban, will take a headquarters job on a Texas base.
The soldier was released in May in a swap for five Taliban commanders, a move some US politicians decried.
The army is investigating the circumstances of his capture, including whether he intended to desert.
Two soldiers will reportedly be assigned to assist Bowe Bergdahl, and he will live in military barracks, US media reported.
He will take a job with US Army North at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston, the army said.
Bowe Bergdahl has yet to speak publicly regarding his ordeal since his release on 31 May.
The move to release five Taliban leaders from Guantanamo Bay after Sgt Bowe Bergdahl was transferred to US special forces sparked a heated political row in the US.
The US opened an investigation into his disappearance in 2009 but said investigators would not interview him until he finished the reintegration process.
The US military has concluded Bowe Bergdahl walked away from his base without authorization before his capture but has stopped short of accusing him of desertion.
