We harness science and technology to protect our nation – bringing together the best people with the best ideas, and applying them in unexpected ways. Because we provide the UK Government with specialist S&T research, advice and analysis, our work is often sensitive in nature, and has the potential to save many lives. Together with other brilliant organisations around the country and abroad, we develop battle-winning technologies, and support UK operations now and into the future.

Put simply, our team ensures intelligent decision-making is at the heart of UK defence and security. That means we provide the Government and Ministry of Defence (MOD) with impartial, evidence-based analysis and human science advice. In fact, it sees us support everything from front line commands to counter terrorism strategies.

You’ll work on a wide range of projects to develop vital defence capabilities, always pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. A creative thinker, you’ll help inform decision-making by developing and using novel analytical tools and techniques. Plus, to keep us ahead of the curve, you’ll conduct pioneering research and experimentation – helping to invest in high-risk, high-reward innovative technologies.

We’ll support you every step of the way, providing on-the-job and course-based training. And by the end of this two-year programme, you’ll know exactly how to present complex scientific analysis to a non-technical audience, including key policy makers. We’re looking for talented graduates with skills in a mix of human and social sciences, who can also conduct qualitative and quantitative analysis. You’ll bring relevant technical knowledge and experience, with an inquisitive, positive attitude. Join, and work on one-off projects in a truly unique, exciting, and inspiring environment.
