University of South FloridaThe School of Information at the University of South Florida (Tampa) seeks applications for a full-time faculty position at the assistant professor level.  A tenure track appointment is possible for the properly qualified candidate.   In Fall, 2014, the School of Information will begin enrollment for a new online master's program (MS) in information studies with a focus on strategy and information analytics.  The MS program will have a formal concentration available in Cyber Intelligence.  This new position will support that concentration and will be a core member of the MS program faculty.

The MS in Information Studies with a Focus on Strategy and Information Analytics will be an applied graduate degree program to train a "next generation" of information and intelligence professionals for the private and public sectors.   The program is built around an innovative STEM-based model for professional analytic education.  The curriculum will focus primarily on developing analytic competencies, and subsequently allow students to focus on specialized subject-matter areas.  

The Cyber Intelligence concentration also articulates with a new MS in Cybersecurity at USF, which is also scheduled to begin enrollment in Fall 2014.  The Cyber Intelligence curriculum will provide a formal concentration for that program as well.  The School of Information is leading the "Cyber Intelligence" component, but this is part of a larger set of exciting cybersecurity initiatives at USF.

We are seeking candidates with a deep understanding of intelligence analytic methodology and at least some background/experience in applying those methodologies to discern the capabilities, intentions, and activities, of potential adversaries or competitors in the cyber realm ("Cyber Intelligence").   Candidates are expected to demonstrate enthusiasm for, and excellence in, teaching, as well as a significant potential for scholarly productivity and external funding. Responsibilities will also include student advising and mentoring, and committee service at department, college, and university levels. Candidates must have the ability to develop, teach, and integrate emerging distance learning technologies into SI online courses. Salaries are nationally competitive commensurate with the rank of assistant professor and we offer a generous package for "start-up" funding. The position is a nine-month appointment with the possibility for summer teaching and research opportunities.

The following are the minimum and preferred qualifications of potential candidates:

Minimum:

  • Ph.D. (or other terminal degree) in a relevant discipline, such as Information Science, Computer Science/Engineering, Operations Research, Behavioral Sciences OR a Master's degree with more than five years of professional experience in intelligence analytic methodology and/or cyber intelligence.

Preferred:

  • Evidence of teaching and/or professional experiences in previously indicated areas
  • Demonstrated potential for multidisciplinary research funding and assisting in the development of a new area of study

NOTE: Deadlines for summer internships in the Intelligence Community are in the fall (October and November) for the following summer.

OPPORTUNITIES FOR CURRENT STUDENTS
The members of the Intelligence Community (IC) offer high school and college students a variety of temporary employment opportunities, including paid internships and co-operative education programs. Such programs allow interested students to experience first-hand what it is like to work in the IC and if it is a “fit” for them. At the same time, the IC agency is able to evaluate the students’ work performance and consider them for permanent employment upon graduation.
In addition, many IC agencies offer scholarships or fellowships, some of which provide a salary and full government benefits as well as tuition and other educational expenses. Interested students should consult the Student/Special Programs web page at the various agencies to learn exactly what programs each offers.

  1. TEMPORARY EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES
    You can contribute to the work of the nation before you graduate as most of the IC components offer summer internship programs and some offer internships during the academic year. Some of the IC components also offer co-operative education programs which are formal programs linking a student’s major with relevant work experience. Most of the co-op programs are for college level students, however the National Security Agency does have a high school co-op program. Interns and co-op students engage in substantive and meaningful work assignments, while earning a competitive hourly wage and gaining valuable practical experience. Competitive is particularly keen for these programs with application deadlines six to nine months in advance of the period in which you wish to work. Applicants are expected to meet the same employment standards as permanent employees. Applicants must be U.S. citizens and should have a strong academic record (GPA of 3.0 or better). Foreign language skills, previous study or residency abroad and military service are pluses. Outstanding interpersonal and communication skills are essential. Some agencies require medical examinations and/or polygraph examinations as well as a background investigation. Some agencies also offer unpaid internships.
    In addition to the above, the institutions listed in AFIO's latest version of our Careers in Intelligence booklet are those places which have offered or currently offer courses in intelligence and security subjects. (Because curricula vary and change from year to year, the list is not definitive.)

  1. Intelligence Community Named 2010 Best Places to Work in the Federal Government

    For the second consecutive year, the Intelligence Community (IC) was honored as one of the top-ten Best Places to Work in the Federal Government, according to an independent analysis of federal workers’ job satisfaction and commitment.

    The rankings were compiled by the Partnership for Public Service (PPS) and American University’s Institute for the Study of Public Policy Implementation (ISPPI) and announced today at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. PPS is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that aims to attract people to federal careers and improve how the government runs. The institute conducts research and helps federal leaders solve difficult public-policy issues.

    Army Lt. Gen. John F. Kimmons, the director of the intelligence staff for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, accepted the award on behalf of the entire IC. “The fact that the IC placed in the top ten for two consecutive years reflects a work force understanding of the critical role they fill and the importance of our national security mission,” he said.

    The IC ranked tenth overall among large agencies, which includes 32 organizations, each of which employs more than two thousand people. Rankings are based on data from the 2010 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey, which the U.S. Office of Personnel Management administers. The first survey was in 2003, but the IC has only participated since 2009. Max Stier, president and CEO of the Partnership for Public Service, noted that the IC does not have to participate but does so voluntarily, “which is a credit to them.”

    To maintain the security of information about its work force, the IC relies on its own instrument to assess each year how its workers feel about issues such as job satisfaction, professional development, and the effectiveness of senior leaders. The IC includes several questions from the federal survey provided by the PPS, in the IC’s annual Employee Climate Survey. That way, the Community’s information would be comparable with that from other organizations under consideration for Best Places.

    Other returning top-ten Best Places to Work are: The Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Government Accountability Office, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the U.S. Departments of State and Justice, and the Social Security Administration.

    According to the Best Places to Work analysis, employee satisfaction is at an all-time high of 65 out of 100, a 7.4 percent jump from 2003 when the rankings were first released, with 68 percent of agencies improving their index score since the last rankings in 2009.

    Visit bestplacestowork.org to see which agencies top the rankings and to access trend analysis, demographic data and all 10 workplace categories, as well as generate custom reports and conduct side-by-side comparisons for up to three agencies.
