In BBN Technologies' Network and Cyber Technology group, we deliver creative solutions for our government customers' critical cyber and security problems.
We are looking for creative, entrepreneurial, and highly motivated cyber research scientists who want to create, contribute to, and grow cutting-edge research projects, such as:
- Analyze systems to understand how they work and what happens when they break
- Develop new and advanced security techniques in embedded and traditional systems
- Create or investigate new types of cyber physical systems
- Investigate the Internet of Things
- Implement unique mission applications for software-defined radios
- Devise creative ways to collect, analyze, and interpret large multi-dimensional data sets
- Create innovative solutions using consumer electronics
- Develop next-generation capabilities for privacy/anonymity and identity control
- Disassemble and analyze a complex embedded system
- Define and lead the growth of new research areas
Although the work changes from one project to the next, it’s always challenging, and it always makes a difference. Projects at BBN are generally short in nature, usually between 6 to 18 months in length, though some are longer, and consist of small teams requiring close interaction with customers and other team members.
