FBI Mathematicians use advanced mathematical skills and knowledge to develop formulas and applications for solving unique FBI administrative, investigative and decision-support requirements. As an FBI Mathematician, your work will often take place in the FBI Lab, where you will apply new principles and concepts to identify theories for solving crime. FBI Mathematicians serve as liaisons with external organizations and academia to ensure FBI capabilities align with methodological advances. This is an ideal role for those who live to use logic and discipline to mine for truth.
- Provide general scientific, analytic and domain-specific knowledge in support of a range of FBI studies where complexity of the problem requires mathematical expertise and where existing nonmathematical approaches are inadequate.
- Use state-of-the-art analytic methodologies (number theory, decision theory, pattern recognition, graph theoretic techniques, discrete mathematical structure, etc.) to enhance the mathematical underpinnings and methodological content of assigned projects. Ensure the transformation of such advances, where applicable, into appropriate functional cryptanalytic systems to support the FBI.
- Apply knowledge of mathematical structures and concepts along with the knowledge of computational environments to transform mathematical formulations into algorithmic formulations amendable to computer implementation.
- Use methods of quantification and analysis to assess quality, validity, correctness and completeness of targeted computational approaches to solve functional problems.
- Must be in compliance with the FBI Employment Drug Policy
- Must be a U.S. citizen
- Some travel may be required.
- Meet all FBI employment eligibility requirements.
- Candidates must have a bachelor’s degree or higher from a U.S.-accredited college or university.
- Must be able to obtain a Top Secret Clearance. May be required to obtain a Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) Clearance.
- Must never have been convicted of a felony.
