Research Associate CBRN Quantitative Analyses and Modeling - Institute for Defense Analyses - Alexandria, Virginia, USA

Job Summary

SFRD has an opening for a Research Associate (RA) to support a portfolio of studies on CBRN defense. These studies examine a variety of issues including the risks posed by threats identified by the intelligence community, quantifying the potential CBRN environment that might challenge both US military forces and civilians, human physiological response to CBRN agents and effects, developing scenarios and vignettes to support exercises, modeling infectious disease spread, and assessing defensive technologies. The work is performed by interdisciplinary teams and while some tasks will be narrowly focused, others will address a broader spectrum of concerns. Our analyses are highly technical and involve considerable modeling and simulation. This work will require a willingness to learn the essentials of CBRN phenomenology and to execute quantitative analyses of the highest caliber.


RAs are junior members of the full-time professional staff working under the guidance and direction of IDA Research Analysts.  In response to assignments provided by IDA Research Analysts, RAs contribute to research teams with information gathering; modeling and simulation; data manipulation, analysis and presentation; and drafting of reports and briefings. Accordingly, RAs are expected to have demonstrated proficiency in technical areas and to be familiar with computer languages and computational and data processing software. RAs are members of interdisciplinary research teams and must demonstrate good interpersonal communications skills and contribute effectively to a team approach to problem solving. The issues that IDA addresses change constantly, and RAs are expected to be adaptable and self-motivated, demonstrating a capacity for independent thought and sound judgment, and creativity in applying quantitative analysis methods to complex technical problems.
