Research Analyst - Information Systems Technology Division (Closes 12/27/2013)
The Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA) is a non-profit federally funded research and development center think tank. IDA provides answers to questions posed by the Department of Defense and other agencies that require careful analysis. IDA takes great pride in the high caliber and timeliness of its analyses, which are produced in an atmosphere that encourages independent thinking and objective results. The Information Technology and Systems Division (ITSD) recognizes the interdependency and connectivity among three key cyber dimensions: operations, technology and policy. Cyber operations depend on technology and must comply with policy and the rule of law. Our analyses focus on the challenges among and between these three dimensions because all dimensions are co-dependent and must evolve concurrently; analyzing each one alone is not sufficient. With talent in all cyber dimensions, we apply our collective experience and knowledge to enable successful outcomes.
The Information Technology and Systems Division (ITSD) has an immediate opening for a Research Analyst. Research Analysts are highly qualified, self-starting professionals sought to advise DoD Officials and/or selected audiences. This position involves close interaction with mid-level and senior civilian and military officials, presenting ideas, concepts, and theories verbally and in writing. The position requires strong communication skills and the candidate must be able to speak and write effectively, think analytically, and work independently.
