If I joined the US Air Force Reserve with a master's degree in aerospace engineering from a good school, what kind of work would they put me in?

I'm a practicing aeronautical engineer with a BSE and MSE in aeroE. I'm comfortable, but am considering entering the US Air Force Reserve for personal reasons. I want to know what kind of work they would have me do when activated. I have almost no interest in being a pilot (believe it or not), and I'm aware that their scientists/engineers are civilians. If I just told them to put me where they need me, what's the most likely duty I'd have?
Also, as a longshot addendum: What would be the odds I could become a russian linguist/translator, with the military providing for the language training?
