Position description

Idaho National Laboratory's Cybercore Integration Center is seeking multiple Junior Project Managers to support a rapidly growing stable of projects sponsored by various elements within the Department of Energy (DOE) and the Department of Defense (DoD). Cybercore's control systems experts, cyber researchers and threat analysts examine potential cyber threats to industrial control systems and develop mitigations and recommendations against those threats.  The individuals chosen will directly support either Cybercore's Energy Portfolio Manager or DoD Program Manager and will be expected to A) ensure each project in the respective portfolio is managed properly in terms of cost, schedule, and performance; B) assign project tasks and performance goals; and C) advise on and execute major project decisions on behalf of Cybercore leadership.  


These challenging positions require project and business management skills, to include planning, coordinating, and executing project activities for DOE or DoD sponsors. These positions require self-starters and effective communicators who excel at identifying work scope and translating that into task definitions for members of the project team.   


The junior Project Managers also will be responsible for generating status and financial management reports; gathering statistical data as needed to identify trends and anomalies in project work; and coordinating deliverable development with technical experts and a more senior Program Manager. The junior Project Managers will interface directly with internal and external customers, line management, other Project Managers, and technical leads. 


INL's Cybercore is all about harnessing disparate skill sets and using them to execute projects that are vital to US national security. Therefore, the person in this position must enjoy and thrive in a team environment.  


This is an exciting time to be in the field of control systems cyber threat analysis, as protecting our industrial control systems from foreign cyber attacks is now recognized by DOE, DoD, other parts of the federal government and the electric power and oil and gas industries as one of the nation’s highest priority security challenges.


  • Must have US citizenship and hold current/active DOE Q clearance (or equivalent Top Secret clearance granted by a USG agency) 
  • Level 1 Project Manager: Bachelor's Degree and 3 years of relevant experience or Master's and 2 years or Doctorate and 1 year
  • Level 2 Project Manager: Bachelor's Degree and 5 years of relevant experience or Master's and 3 years or Doctorate and 2 years
  • Preferred educational fields include business management, international relations/national security studies, cyber security, or an industrial control systems-related engineering discipline.  
  • Relevant experience includes project management/coordination (particularly on US Government-funded projects and/or project management experience here at INL), cyber security, development and review of proposals and project reports on complex technical topics and familiarity with industrial control systems.  
  • This position requires strong writing and verbal communications skills, and applicants with previous military experience, especially in a cyber-related mission specialty, will be particularly competitive. 
  • Must be able to work under pressure, simultaneously addressing multiple complex tasks to meet commitments while maintaining quality of work and a professional interface.
