Job Details

Join MITREs new Strategic Analysis department (J84E) to develop and execute enterprise-level performance analyses supporting investment decisions for new systems within the Government. The focus of the analyses is to evaluate the operational impact of new systems within larger architectures rather than solely examine the technical performance of the systems. This holistic view enables high-level trades to be made with recommendations on where the Government should focus R&D and acquisition efforts. The analyses also serve to identify and guide more detailed examination of key performance drivers within an architecture.

Across MITRE, Strategic Analysis includes, but is not limited to, high fidelity models in ISR & C2 domains, scenario mapping, decision & data analytics and other MSEA disciplines. The Strategic Analysis Department will cultivate these and other competencies as needed, to foster a rigorous strategic analysis capability within MITRE. The intent is to engage and collaborate with sponsors early on, pre-analysis-of-alternatives and at the appropriate levels, to facilitate better decisions at strategic levels. Initial focus will be on MITREs Joint & Service portfolios, with future expansion across the full spectrum of MITRE sponsors.

Key Functions:
Responsibilities will include technical contributions to development of analysis tools, executing the analysis, and production of technical products. Successful candidates will
Participate in small teams focused on the modeling and application of complex systems.
Develop models and simulations to measure the operational effectiveness of systems within a larger architecture. As an example, estimate the impact of a new ground surveillance radar on an architectures effectiveness to strike targets within the context of communications, command and control, and enemy threats.
Construct appropriate scenarios as context for the analyses to ensure a spectrum of capabilities are assessed.
Perform analyses to assess the performance of current and future systems, identify improved applications and techniques, and ultimately recommend solutions.
Compile results and document the process for presentation to sponsors.

Required Qualifications:
B.S. (or higher) in math, physics, engineering, or related disciplines
Experience applying modeling, simulation, and analysis techniques
Strong analytical, problem solving, communication, and interpersonal skills
Eligible for DoD security clearance

Preferred Qualifications:
Experience applying modeling, simulation, and analyses techniques to system performance assessments
M.S. (or higher) in math, physics, engineering, or related disciplines
3 years of related experience
Familiarity with probability and statistics, numerical methods, and optimization techniques
Ability to effectively communicate complex technical topics at multiple levels as appropriate for the audience
Working knowledge of military operations and Government acquisition processes
Experience using analytical software tools for modeling, simulation, and analysis of complex systems including Matlab
Existing DoD Secret or TS/SCI clearance
