GDIT seeks candidates to serve as a Program Coordinator at Department of State headquarters in Washington, DC. Job duties include developing, implementing, and coordinating non-proliferation capacity-building efforts--including countering the nuclear and missile threats posed by North Korea and other select WMD proliferation threats, such as Iran, in partner countries. The candidate will be responsible for programmatic and technical oversight of assigned activities in several priority countries and will work closely with other State Department offices, 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.
The candidate will also support policies to identify and disrupt activities that supply material, equipment, and financing (including cryptocurrencies and cyber thefts) for national security threats. Current counter-North Korea and Iran programming efforts focus primarily on Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and Africa, while programmatic efforts continue to evolve in response to the international security environment and seek to reinforce U.S. national security objectives in this dynamic environment. Candidates will help develop and implement innovative strategies to address some of the most pressing nonproliferation challenges facing the U.S., including threats from the DPRK, Iran, Syria, and other proliferant states. Duties and responsibilities under this opportunity include, but are not limited to:
• Develop and enact engagement strategies to counter North Korea's nuclear and missile programs and advance other nuclear threat reduction priorities.
• Manage technical experts who conduct trainings and other activities to build capacity with partner countries to: counter emerging nuclear and missile threats including North Korea's nuclear and missile programs; prevent insider threats at nuclear facilities; counter Iranian ballistic missile development; and, control the spread of nuclear material and expertise.
• Brief high-level officials in the Department of State on CTR programmatic activities, including on cryptocurrencies, cyber thefts and other U.N Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) sanctions evasion efforts.
• Identify and execute innovative approaches that improve the customer's ability to conduct international threat reduction programs.
• Lead and participate in the review of threat reduction project proposals and making recommendations concerning the approval and funding of proposals.
• Represent the customer in domestic and foreign meetings as required, and additional tasks in support of the office at home or abroad, as assigned.
• Cooperate with partners in the U.S. interagency to align CTR engagements with other U.S. government nonproliferation programs and ensure effective and efficient implementation.
• Other activities as assigned by the Office Director, Deputy Director, and Counterproliferation Programs' Team Chief.
