Posted on: September 14, 2019

Job Description:

Overview : 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. Work at IDA is conducted in a team environment and often involves a multi-disciplinary approach. Researchers work closely and are in frequent contact with government sponsors. Consequently, strong communications skills will be greatly valued. Established in 2010, IDA's Africa Team was designed to respond to the growing strategic importance of the African continent. IDA's regional experts support U.S. government decision makers with objective analyses and policy recommendations for matters pertaining to the continent of Africa. With a diverse group of experts, the Africa Team has formed a unique research capability that examines the most challenging and complex issues existing in or emanating from the African continent. In particular, experts have extensive background in defense and security matters, military establishments, strategic assessments, intelligence analysis, and methodologies for measuring stability and institutional change. Experts also monitor trends and developments on the continent that could result in political, social, or economic change. As an FFRDC, IDA prepares highly-tailored deliverables based upon a sponsor's requirement. Africa experts are able to attain data and unique insights by engaging African government officials, nongovernmental organizations, other partner nations, private sector entities and academia during the conduct of field research. Responsibilities: IDA seeks candidates for a Research Analyst position within IAD. This position works alongside highly experienced analysts who are working on projects for the DoD and the Intelligence Community. Primary work will be accomplished at the IDA headquarters, in Alexandria, VA. A Research Analyst must be highly competent and capable of leading a team of analysts toward a common objective.
