We are seeking a full-time Senior Research Scientist with some background in Cyber Security to work at our Basking Ridge NJ location. This position requires the ability to perform research in a laboratory setting using commercially available networking hardware, simulation tools (e.g. NS3) and emulation tools (e.g. GNS3). A qualified candidate should have a demonstrated ability to perform research in the area of data networking including orchestrating experiments, collecting data and assessing results. Software development skills are required. These would include both scripting languages (e.g. Python) and compiled languages (e.g. C++). A background in Cyber Security would be a significant plus including knowledge of intrusion detection and mitigation technologies. Resumes are sought from those with strong system development skills and a willingness to learn and explore.
Requires 10 to 12 years with BS/BA or 8 to 10 years with MS/MA or 5 to 7 years with PhD.
• Demonstrated hands-on experience with TCP/IP networking
• Experience with network simulation tools (e.g. NS3, OpNet)
• Proficiency in at least one systems programming language (e.g. C, C++) and at least one scripting language (e.g. Python, Perl)
• Experience with performing scientific experiments, investigations, observations and related research studies
• Effective communication and writing skills.
• U.S. Citizenship Required
• Willingness to acquire DoD clearance
• Experience with cyber security technologies including intrusion detection and attack mitigation.
• DoD Top Secret clearance
