Research Staff Member - Center for Computing Sciences
The Institute for Defense Analyses Center for Computing Sciences (CCS) is looking for outstanding Ph.D. level scientists, mathematicians and engineers to address problems in high-performance computing, cryptography and network security. IDA/CCS is an independent research center sponsored by the National Security Agency. IDA/CCS scientists and engineers work on difficult scientific problems, problems vital to the nation's security. Stable funding provides for a vibrant research environment and an atmosphere of intellectual inquiry free of administrative burdens.
Research at IDA/CCS emphasizes computer science, computer architecture, electrical engineering, information theory and all branches of mathematics. Because CCS research staff work on complex topics often engaging multidisciplinary teams, candidates should demonstrate depth in a particular field as well as a broad understanding of computational science and technology.
Developing imaginative computational solutions employing novel digital technology is one of several long-term themes of work at CCS. CCS is equipped with a very large variety of hardware and software. The latest developments in high-end computing are heavily used and projects routinely challenge the capability of the most advanced architectures.
IDA/CCS offers a competitive salary, an excellent benefits package and a superior professional working environment. IDA/CCS is located in a modern research park in the Maryland suburbs of Washington, DC.
U.S. citizenship is required. Candidates selected will be subject to a security investigation and must meet eligibility requirements for a DoD TS/SCI security clearance and satisfactory full scope polygraph. CCS will sponsor this clearance for those selected
