Graduate Studies Program - Research Scientist

Work Schedule: Full Time
Location: Washington, DC metropolitan area

 

Our graduate studies program seeks motivated graduate students pursuing degrees in various engineering disciplines, computer science, physics, mathematics/statistics, chemistry, biology, or material science. You will be part of team performing exploratory and applied scientific research, providing technical guidance on use of current and emerging technology.


Minimum qualifications: Students should be enrolled in various engineering disciplines, computer science, physics, mathematics/statistics, chemistry, biology, or material science MS or PHD programs with a GPA of 3.0 or better.

All applicants must successfully complete a thorough medical and psychological exam, a polygraph interview and an extensive background investigation. US citizenship is required.

To be considered suitable for Agency employment, applicants must generally not have used illegal drugs within the last twelve months. The issue of illegal drug use prior to twelve months ago is carefully evaluated during the medical and security processing.

Important Notice: Friends, family, individuals, or organizations may be interested to learn that you are an applicant for or an employee of the CIA. Their interest, however, may not be benign or in your best interest. You cannot control whom they would tell. We therefore ask you to exercise discretion and good judgment in disclosing your interest in a position with the Agency. You will receive further guidance on this topic as you proceed through your CIA employment processing.

To Apply:

Make a note of the position(s) that interest you, as you can apply for up to four positions in one application. DO NOT submit multiple applications; this will only slow the review of your application, and delay processing. Please read the Application Instructions carefully before you begin the online application process.
