Job Description

GDIT is seeking the expertise of a Program Coordinator in CTR at Department of State headquarters.

Job duties include developing, implementing, and coordinating the conduct of nonproliferation capacity-building efforts in partner countries in order to counter the nuclear and missile threats posed by North Korea, Iran’s ballistic missile programs, and other select proliferation threats. The candidate will be responsible for programmatic and technical oversight of assigned activities in several countries and will work closely with other State Department offices, interagency colleagues, counterparts in foreign governments, technical experts, and others to

devise and execute program activities. The candidate will also be responsible for supporting relevant policy development and implementation within the State Department and coordinating with other U.S. government departments and agencies, as needed.

In support of national security policy, CTR conducts capacity-building in assistance-eligible partner states that aims to strengthen government and private sector compliance with international prohibitions on activities that fund or equip WMD programs, e.g., the UN Security Council-imposed sanctions regime treating North Korea. CTR’s UN Sanctions Compliance program engages partners in the Asia/Pacific region, the Middle East, Africa, and selected states in the Americas. CTR’s programmatic efforts evolve in response to the

international security environment and seek to reinforce U.S. national security objectives in this dynamic environment. To this end, we welcome candidates who can develop and implement innovative strategies to address some of the most pressing nonproliferation challenges facing the United States.

Duties and responsibilities under this opportunity include, but are not limited to:

• Developing and enacting engagement strategies, and managing technical experts who conduct trainings and other activities, to build

capacity with partner countries to counter nuclear and missile threats including North Korea's programs and Iran’s ballistic missile


• Designing, developing, and executing innovative approaches that improve CTR's ability to conduct international threat reduction


• Developing, coordinating with the interagency, and implementing country-specific engagement strategies in partnership with host

government officials, including at senior levels, and advancing time-sensitive capacity-building projects, both remotely and

internationally, tailored to the partners’ priority needs;

• Participating in the review of threat reduction project proposals and making recommendations concerning the approval and funding of

proposals; and,

• Representing CTR in domestic and foreign meetings as required, and additional tasks in support of CTR at home or abroad, as assigned.


• The candidate must possess a minimum of five years’ experience working on USG nonproliferation or counterproliferation programs.

The ideal candidate will have achieved demonstrated success advancing U.S. nonproliferation priorities and skillfully engaging both

policy and technical audiences, as well as demonstrated success in foreign partner capacity-building and relationship management with

international partners and/or multilateral organizations.

• The candidate must possess and demonstrate strong skills in interagency coordination, communication, and networking.

• The candidate must possess and demonstrate outstanding skills in written and verbal communication, diplomacy, teamwork,

facilitation, and project management.

• A Master’s degree with a minimum of three year's experience, or a Bachelor's degree with five year's experience in a relevant policy

or technical discipline is required.

• International travel is required; foreign language skills are a plus.

• The candidate must be located in the Washington, DC metropolitan area or willing to relocate to perform the stated duties.

• The candidate must possess or qualify to be granted an active U.S. government security clearance at the Secret level or above.
