Officers in the Analysis Career Field serve at the heart of DIA’s global mission. Analysis Officers provide cutting-edge analysis from locations around the world on foreign military capabilities and defense issues in support of our nation’s warfighters, policymakers, and defense planners. Through written products, in-person briefings, or multimedia presentations, their work informs tactical decisions of policy, defense strategy, weapons development and acquisition, and military planning.
DIA’s Analysis Career Field is seeking candidates with STEM degrees and related experience to specialize in advancing all-source analytic methods and producing scientific and technical intelligence.

Advanced All-Source Methods (AAM) analysis officers deconstruct key questions to suggest appropriate methods and identify and exploit relevant data sources. Officers utilize a wide range of existing methods and models (such as game, theoretical, statistical, probabilistic, or agent-based models) to identify appropriate analytic applications and present recommendations for future programs, practices and/or procedures and make necessary changes to meet the needs of changing systems/programs. AAM officers collaborate with mission partners throughout relevant research and development partner organizations, including within the Defense Department, the Intelligence Community, Federally Funded Research and Development Corporations, and University Affiliated Research Centers, to align innovation efforts wherever necessary or appropriate and conduct analytic outreach (e.g. to academia) as appropriate in accordance with Agency policy and procedures.

Be a part of our Nation’s vanguard against scientific and technical threats by providing the systematic study and analysis of foreign capabilities in basic and applied research and engineering. Scientific and Technical Intelligence (S&TI) all-source analysts warn decision makers of foreign technical developments and capabilities including military weapons systems, emerging and disruptive technologies, the proliferation of nuclear, biological and chemical weapons; along with physical vulnerability assessments and detailing global health response capabilities and threats posed by infectious disease.

DIA is seeking entry-level STEM candidates with expertise in a variety of mission areas, including:
• Defense-related topics such as military capabilities and strategy; terrorism; weapons systems and proliferation; illicit trafficking; energy; telecommunications and logistics infrastructure; underground facilities; defense economics/industry; emerging and disruptive technologies; and supply chain risk management.
• Combatant command functional areas of responsibility (e.g., space, special operations, strategic, transportation, cyberspace).
• Geographic or regional knowledge (e.g., military, social, political, or cultural expertise).
• Structured methodological approaches to organize data and model probabilities, natural language processing techniques, or statistics tools.
• STEM fields such as physics, mathematics, applied statistics, computer science, data science, chemistry, biology, toxicology, and engineering disciplines including electrical, mechanical, nuclear, aerospace, chemical, computer, general, or modeling and simulation.
For this event, the ACF is especially interested in candidates with the following skills and/or backgrounds: China, Russia, space/counterspace, data science, computer science, nuclear, electrical, and aerospace engineering backgrounds. Such candidates are highly encouraged to apply.

Positions include –
- Aerospace Engineer (0861)*
- Biological Scientist/Molecular Biologist (0401)*
- Chemical Engineer (0893)*
- Chemist (1320)*
- Computer Engineer (0854)*
- Computer Scientist (1550)*
- Data Scientist (1560)*
- Electronics Engineer (0855)*
- General Engineer (0801)*
- Mechanical Engineer (0830)*
- Nuclear Engineer (0840)*
- Physical Scientist (1301)*
- Physicist (1310)*
