Group 58—Cyber Systems and Technology
The United States Government faces serious threats from sophisticated cyber adversaries who seek to access, compromise, and disrupt systems and the missions they support. The Cyber Systems and Technology Group strives to improve the security of these government systems through the assessment, development and deployment of innovative cyber security solutions that rely on the application of sound scientific and engineering principles and methodologies. We develop threat models, measures and metrics for security, and build and standardize resilient systems. We design cyber sensors and analytics, develop cryptographic solutions for data at rest, in transit, and in use, and build scalable cyber decision support tools. In each of the group’s R&D areas, emphasis is placed on realistic data and rigorous experimental evaluation of techniques. Projects are carried out by small, focused, cooperative teams that succeed together by participating in all phases of technical solution ...

Members of the Cyber Systems and Technology Group are creative, motivated self-starters who share a common passion for helping to solve critical National cyber security problems. We are computer scientists, software and hardware engineers, mathematicians, machine learning researchers and practitioners, cryptographers, system analysts and security architects who firmly believe we make a difference in the security of the nation. We are growing our team to meet national needs and seek like-minded individuals who want to work on challenging problems in the supportive, flexible, applied academic environment that is MIT Lincoln Laboratory.

Cyber/Physical Systems Research Analyst/Engineer

The Cyber Security for Critical Infrastructures Research Analyst/Engineer will work with a diverse team of researchers to assess and minimize the cyber threat to critical infrastructure technologies involving cyber/physical systems, for industries such as the energy sector, water utilities, transportation systems, critical manufacturing and its supply chain lifecycle, and biomedical/chemical industries, among others. As part of the assessment, risks are quantified and recommendations are provided to mitigate identified threats; follow-on work may involve implementation of the recommended mitigations. Work may include the development of secure standards and technologies.

Requirements:
Ph.D or M.S. with 3-5 years experience in electrical engineering, computer science, physical sciences, applied mathematics, or related area The candidate must have a direct experience and strong grasp of both the cyber security domain and its practical implications for monitoring, decision-making, control and automation of industrial control systems (ICS). Must have good working knowledge of system and network security technologies, IP networking. Ability to demonstrate effective written and verbal communication skills are a must

Desired Skills:
Relevant experience developing and debugging software for embedded systems and programmable controllers is a plus. Familiarity with certification and accreditation procedures and processes is desired is recommended and developed solutions will need to meet government standards. Additionally, familiarity or direct experience with the process of forming and passing standards is a plus.

MIT Lincoln Laboratory is an Equal Opportunity Employer, M/F/D/V.
U.S. citizenship is required.
