The Center for Computing Sciences
Research Employment Opportunities – IDA Center for Computing Sciences
The Center for Computing Sciences (CCS) provides an exciting, welcoming, and diverse environment in which computer scientists, mathematicians, and engineers from across the nation come together to solve problems of critical importance to national security. CCS works closely with the National Security Agency and many partners to develop computing technologies tailored to the demanding requirements of national-security-related computations. As a non-profit Federally Funded Research and Development Center, CCS operates in the public interest, free from organizational conflicts of interest, and can therefore assist the Department of Defense in ways that industry and for-profit contractors cannot.
CCS offers several types of research positions in addition to that of full-time researcher. Summer research positions are available for graduate students through senior researchers. We also have adjunct positions which are appropriate for established researchers who are available to visit intermittently. We look for individuals with a strong record of solving technical problems rather than specific fields. CCS offers an academic-style environment, a competitive salary, and an excellent benefits package. All applicants must be U.S. citizens with an ability to meet security clearance requirements – TS/SCI with polygraph.
