Job Description: As a Low Intensity Conflict analyst, your job is to identify and track radical, extremist, and revolutionary movements in the United States.

Knowledge of the intelligence cycle, critical thinking techniques, and structured analysis is beneficial. The ability to think and write clearly and concisely is a must.

Salary is negotiable based on experience.
