The IDA Science and Technology Policy Institute (STPI) is one of three federally funded research and development centers operated by the Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA). STPI provides analytical support to the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), NASA, and other federal agencies on science and technology (S&T) policy issues.
STPI is currently seeking candidates for a Research Analyst position. The organization takes pride in the high caliber and timeliness of its analyses, which are produced in an atmosphere that encourages independent thinking to achieve objective results. Work at STPI often involves multidisciplinary research in diverse teams and the staff works closely with and regularly interacts with federal sponsors.
STPI’s work in the aerospace domain focuses on analyzing the United States’ space technology and policy environment as well as that of other emerging and established spacefaring nations. The Research Analyst will work with OSTP, federal agencies, and inter-agency committees and staff to envision, coordinate, and evaluate national initiatives and policies related to space and aerospace S&T policies. The Research Analyst must understand the policy needs of federal agencies active in aerospace.
