NCTC has permanent and rotational opportunities for professionals that are interested in working in a dynamic organization focused on leading the nation’s effort to combat terrorism at home and abroad. NCTC’s workforce consists of cadre officers, whose long-term professional home is with NCTC, and detailees who are assigned here for multi-year rotations from 20 different federal agencies. Our workforce also includes a critically important population of contractors, whose essential contributions can be found across every mission area.

NCTC is looking for candidates with backgrounds in foreign languages, area studies, international relations, finance, geography, national security studies, military and foreign affairs, political science, computer science, data science, mathematics, economics, engineering, operations research, statistics, and program management and support.
