The Institute for Defense Analyses Center for Communications Research—Princeton (IDA/CCR-P) is looking for individuals in mathematics, computer science, electrical engineering, and related fields to join in exciting research that enhances our nation’s security along with our sponsor, the National Security Agency.  Individuals that thrive here enjoy solving difficult problems with a wide range of tools, from mathematics, statistics, computational science, and engineering.  Rather than recruiting specific specialties, we are looking for smart PhDs who are willing to learn whatever it takes to solve our ever evolving research problems.  Some problems require very deep and sophisticated mathematics, others the latest computational and other technologies, and many problems require both.  Ours is a superior professional working environment emphasizing cooperative effort.  We are located in Princeton, NJ and benefit from the exciting intellectual environment of our immediate area, as well as the benefits of being close to both New York and Philadelphia.  

U.S. citizenship and a Department of Defense TS//SI clearance (with polygraph) are required.  IDA/CCR-P will sponsor this clearance for those selected.  

Interested individuals should contact Dr. David J. Saltman (Director) at with a C.V. and a list of references, and they should apply to this announcement.
