The Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA) operates three Federally Funded Research and Development Centers supporting federal decision making – two serving the Department of Defense (DoD) and one serving the Office of Science and Technology Policy in the Executive Office of the President of the United States. IDA assists the United States Government in addressing important national security issues, particularly those requiring scientific and technical expertise.
This position is in IDA’s Intelligence Analyses Division (IAD). IAD supports the Department of Defense, the Intelligence Community, and other U.S. Government Agencies by providing analyses of critical intelligence and national security issues. IAD is involved in analytical activities across a wide range of cross disciplinary national security and intelligence matters including: programmatic assessments; technical evaluations; social science research; strategic analysis; physical, cyber, and human threat evaluations; and open source exploitation. Short and long term sponsoring arrangements with U.S. Government entities provide a steady stream of intellectual challenges for the IAD staff in the furtherance of national objectives and for identifying opportunities to improve public sector performance.
IDA seeks candidates for a Research Analyst position within IAD. This position will work alongside highly experienced analysts who are working on projects for the DoD and the Intelligence Community. Primary work will be accomplished in Alexandria, VA at the IDA headquarters in a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility.
