FBI Civilian Jobs – Mathematician

Website Federal Bureau of Investigation

Job Description:

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.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Use methods of quantification and analysis to assess quality, validity, correctness and completeness of targeted computational approaches to solve functional problems.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Job Requirements:

  • Must be able to obtain a Top Secret Clearance. May be required to obtain a Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) Clearance.
  • Some travel may be required.
  • Must be a U.S. citizen
  • Meet all FBI employment eligibility requirements.
  • Must be in compliance with the FBI Employment Drug Policy
  • Must never have been convicted of a felony.

Qualification & Experience:

  • Candidates must have a bachelor’s degree or higher from a U.S.-accredited college or university.
  • GS 7: Applicant must have a bachelor’s degree with superior academic achievement or one full year of graduate level education. Superior academic achievement is the completion of all the requirements of a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university, which is based on (1.) class standing, (2.) grade-point average of 3.0 or higher as recorded on an official transcript or as based on courses completed during the final two years of the curriculum, or (3.) honor society membership.
  • GS 9: Applicant must have a master’s or equivalent graduate degree or two full years of progressively higher-level graduate education leading to such a degree or LLB or JD, if related.
  • GS 11: Applicant must have a PhD OR equivalent doctoral degree OR three full years of progressively higher-level graduate education leading to such a degree OR LLM, if related.
