Come be a part of something big! Smart Minds, Cool Jobs and Awesome Rewards! Fueled by innovation, talent and ambition, the Air Force Civilian Service (AFCS) is seeking civilian professionals prepared to deploy war-winning capabilities on behalf of the United States Air Force.
The Air Force Civilian Service (AFCS) is looking for a Full-Time Telecommunications Analyst, DR-II to work at the Joint Warfare Analysis Center, Dahlgren, VA. This federal job offers a rewarding and exciting career with benefits. In this position, you will perform scientific and engineering analysis on telecommunications systems and their interdependencies with associated infrastructures such as electrical power. When given an operational, planning, or exercise objective, the analyst will build a representative characterization and computational model/simulation of the system, network, node, or component under investigation. Specific telecommunications systems to be studied include cellular networks (4G, LTE and 5G), optical fiber networks (both terrestrial and undersea), and tropo-scatter systems.
Requirements:
• Must be a U.S. Citizen.
• Previous telecommunications experience is highly desired.
• An engineering degree from an ABET accredited institution is required for this position. To be acceptable, the degree program must: (1) lead to a bachelor’s degree in a school of engineering ; or (2) include differential and integral calculus and courses (more advanced than first-year physics and chemistry) in five of the following seven areas of engineering science or physics: (a) statics, dynamics; (b) strength of materials (stress-strain relationships); (c) fluid mechanics, hydraulics; (d) thermodynamics; (e) electrical fields and circuits; (f) nature and properties of materials (relating particle and aggregate structure to properties); and (g) any other comparable area of fundamental engineering science or physics, such as optics, heat transfer, soil mechanics, or electronics.
• Incumbent must have or be capable of obtaining and retaining a Top Secret/SCI security clearance.
• This position has been designated by the Air Force as a Testing Designated Position (TDP) under the Air Force Civilian Drug Testing program. The incumbent is subject to random testing for drug use.
• Position is subject to polygraph testing.
Duties:
• Perform scientific and engineering analysis on telecommunications systems and their interdependencies with associated infrastructures such as electrical power. When given an operational, planning, or exercise objective, the analyst will build a representative characterization and computational model/simulation of the system, network, node, or component under investigation. Specific telecommunications systems to be studied include cellular networks (4G, LTE and 5G), optical fiber networks (both terrestrial and undersea), and tropo-scatter systems.
• Evaluate network models to ensure they are an accurate representation of the real world problem, filling information shortfalls using scientific, engineering and/or operations research principles. The analyst will conduct detailed network analysis to identify critical elements (i.e., an element of an entity or object which enables it to perform its primary function) and vulnerabilities within the system, network, node, or component.
• The analyst will operate independently and as part of a multi-disciplinary team and collaborates with national, theater and other Intelligence Community (IC) counterparts, collectors and customers to create high-valued targeting products. Periodically the analyst is expected to lead a multi-disciplinary analysis team, performing the full range of project management responsibilities. The analyst will develop plans of action to include: milestone scheduling and required coordination with other organizations and activities; options for further study and experimentation; concepts development, solutions assessment, rapid evaluation of alternatives, experimentation, and coordinating support from other groups within the organization; plans for operational experimentation and analysis; and manpower and funding recommendations.
• Prepare, produce and deliver timely, relevant, and technically accurate targeting products including the respective methodologies, assumptions, conclusions, and recommendations to the customer. Provide supporting materials such as imagery, maps, and diagrams in accordance with JWAC policies, procedures and applicable target development standards. Prepare and deliver comprehensive, formal and informal briefings to customers and command senior leadership. Present and defend methodologies and analytical results within and outside of the command. Document any new or improved development, concepts, techniques, etc. Provide expertise to other analysts, scientists, engineers, managers, contractors, and other collaborative partners.
• Explore, develop, evaluate and/or operationalize new technologies and capabilities to improve analytical quality, technical content, presentation and delivery of targeting products. Develop innovative and useful approaches for improving or expanding methodologies, models, products and services, including technically advancing the rigor of products using advanced analytical methods and structured problem solving techniques. Improve business processes and reduce product cycle times, without sacrificing technical rigor or quality. Identify and apply best practices from government, industry or academia to strengthen JWAC’s analytical position. Improve integrated security processes and practices to facilitate a secure work environment.
• Build effective collaborative networks and alliances with key peers and stakeholders across the Operations and Intelligence Communities. Actively engage these peers and stakeholders, involve them in key tasks and decisions, and effectively leverage the social networks and alliances to achieve value-added results. Represent the command externally to foster collaboration and promote understanding of the command, its mission and respective capabilities. Collaborate across discipline and organizational boundaries to achieve and/or enhance organization efficiencies.
Your qualifications will be evaluated based on your level of knowledge, skills abilities and /or competencies in the following areas:
• Working knowledge of telecommunication systems design, installation, operation and maintenance, to include the use of specialized tools, methods, and practices, for the purposes of systems modeling and analysis.
• Ability to conduct detailed technical research and manipulate computer data to produce reports and perform complex analyses in accordance with a fixed delivery schedule.
• Ability to utilize full suite of information technology (computer programs/software, databases and automated tools) to satisfy job requirements.
• Ability to recognize and use correct grammar, punctuation, and spelling; write in proper formats to meet informational needs; communicate information (e.g., facts, ideas) in a succinct and organized manner; and produce technical written information.
• Ability to effectively express information (e.g., ideas, facts) to individuals or groups, taking the audience into account, as well as the nature of the information (e.g., technical, sensitive, controversial); make clear and convincing oral presentations; listen to others, attend to nonverbal cues, and respond accordingly.
• Ability to analyze information and make correct inferences or draw accurate conclusions; determine accuracy and relevance of information; use sound judgment to generate and evaluate alternatives; and make recommendations.
