Molecular Information Storage Scientist

The Challenge:

What if you could use your biomedical or computational science background to transform high-risk, high-reward scientific research programs? As a biomedical or computational science 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 DNA synthesis, DNA sequencing, microfluidics, CMOS chip design and fabrication, modeling and simulation, and information theory 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. That’s why we need you, a biomedical or computational science expert, who specializes in DNA synthesis, DNA sequencing, microfluidics, CMOS chip design and fabrication, modeling and simulation, and information theory, to help us advise our Government clients work with research partners that come from Academia, other research institutions, and private industry. You’ll work hand in hand with the Government Program Manager to deliver technical support and expertise on new concepts beyond the Program but integral to the Program’s success. We’ll look to you to share your electrical engineering expertise through leadership and mentoring junior staff. Join us and take on exciting challenges in the Intelligence Community.
