Job Description

Job Number: R0054729

Social Scientist

The Challenge: 

Do you find yourself constantly looking for more and better information? Do you want a job where you can use your knowledge and research skills to improve national security? Never has the role of a social scientist been so meaningful. More connected devices, larger storage capacity, and faster connections has resulted in an explosion of available information. The problem facing the DoD and the Special Operations Community is no longer how to get more data – it’s understanding how to turn the data they have into answers. That’s where you come in. With critical thinking and flexibility, you quickly seek out the accurate data sources, sift through the raw data and turn it into valuable intelligence. If you have strong analytical skills and a problem-solving mindset, we have an opportunity to use those skills to support our Special Operators, protect our national security, and inform key leaders.

As social scientist and senior all-source analyst on our team, you’ll explore new data sources, create effective queries, and combine information from disparate sources to help your client understand the information operations landscape, mission environment, and cultural landscape. You’ll validate information and develop tradecraft, as you build assessments for the information operations team and Special Operations Command South leadership. This is a chance to grow your expertise and broaden your skillset into the Special Operations support realm. You will share your expertise with the Special Operations enterprise through leadership and mentoring. We focus on growing as a team to deliver the best support to our customers, so you’ll have resources to learn new skills and tools. Join us as we provide the right information at the right time to support the critical needs of our Special Operations community!
Empower change with us.
