Director's Summer Program (DSP)/Cryptanalysis and Signals Analysis Summer Program (CASA SP), Fort Meade, MD
Applicants applying to this job opening will be considered for the Director's Summer Program and the Cryptanalysis and Signals Analysis Summer Program.
The DSP provides a unique summer opportunity to outstanding undergraduate mathematics majors. Each summer, we invite about two dozen exceptional students to collaborate with each other and with NSA Mathematicians on problems critical to the intelligence gathering and information assurance missions of the agency. The students participating in this program work on a wide range of problems involving applications of abstract algebra, geometry, number theory, analysis, probability, statistics, combinatorics, graph theory, algorithms, computer science. Throughout the summer, students develop mathematical theory, apply what they learn to obtain real-time solutions, and experience the success built on hard work and innovation. State-of-the-art computing resources are available to all students, as well as a variety of computational algebra and statistics packages.
The DSP is seeking students who have distinguished themselves in undergraduate research or national mathematics competitions. Admission to this program is highly competitive. Applicants should have demonstrated superior mathematical aptitude. One full year of upper level mathematics (abstract algebra or analysis) is strongly recommended. Some computer programming experience is desirable. The program runs for 12 weeks, from the end of May to the middle of August.
Cryptanalysis and Signals Analysis Summer Program (CASA SP):
The CASASP gives undergraduate mathematicians and computer scientists a chance to contribute to mission-essential technical operations at the National Security Agency (NSA). The CASA mission is to transform collected data into a format analysts can readily consume for intelligence purposes by analyzing signals and protocols, and overcoming security measures. Each summer we invite twelve students to learn, use, and further NSA's tradecraft as they work on operational problems of national importance.
CASASP begins with classified briefings on modern cryptography and operational projects which will form the basis for research throughout the summer. Problems involve applications of math, statistics, computer science, reverse engineering, and software development. We work with data from many sources, analyze a wide range of technologies, and provide access to cutting-edge computing resources. Results are integrated into production systems to provide new capabilities to our organization.
The CASASP runs from the end of May through the middle of August and is open to students majoring in mathematics, computer science, or a related field. Applicants should have at least one year of mathematics beyond calculus. Some programming experience is expected (C, C++, Java, or Python). If you possess imagination, initiative and intellectual curiosity, apply for the CASASP
