The Challenge:

What if you could use your Genetic Research and DNA Sequencing background to transform high-risk, high-reward scientific research programs? As a Biosciences professional, you understand the power behind complex systems. That knowledge is key when it comes to help shape and guide advanced research programs for the Intelligence Community. We’re looking for expertise in biotechnology and synthetic biology, to help Government Program Managers run successful research programs.

Our team of scientists provide Systems Engineering and Technical Assistance (SETA) support to programs that have the potential to provide our nation with an overwhelming intelligence advantage.
