Psychological/Psychiatric Analyst

Work Schedule:Full Time
Salary:$86,927 – $153,200
Location:Washington, DC metropolitan area

The CIA's Directorate of Intelligence (DI) seeks experienced social and I-O psychologists and psychiatrists to research, analyze, and write assessments of foreign leaders, societal impacts of disease and disaster, and decision-making groups for the most senior US Government policymakers. These analysts would work closely with regional leadership and political analysts throughout the Intelligence Community, as well as other health professionals in government and academia to produce current and longer-term intelligence products. They are encouraged to maintain and to broaden professional ties through outreach to academia, continuing education, and attendance at professional meetings. They also may pursue—and be sponsored for—additional studies in fields relevant to their area of responsibility. Opportunities exist for foreign and domestic travel, language training, analytic and management training, and assignments in other offices in the Agency.

Minimum requirements include an M.D., PhD., or Psy.D from an accredited US university in a relevant academic program, at least five years of work experience in a post-graduate, post-supervised practice with adults in a clinical setting that involved some work with normal (neurotic)—preferably high-functioning—populations or practice/research in the nexus of personality and group, organizational or societal dynamics and outcomes related to decision-making, effectiveness, aggression, cooperation, and/or intergroup function. Demonstrated excellent communication and computer skills with the ability to formulate and communicate complex concepts to a lay audience, clearly, concisely, and rapidly and to adjust presentation to different formats, consumers, and purposes are also required.

All applicants must successfully complete a thorough medical and psychological exam, a polygraph interview and an extensive background investigation. US citizenship is required.

To be considered suitable for Agency employment, applicants must generally not have used illegal drugs within the last twelve months. The issue of illegal drug use prior to twelve months ago is carefully evaluated during the medical and security processing.

Important Notice: Friends, family, individuals, or organizations may be interested to learn that you are an applicant for or an employee of the CIA. Their interest, however, may not be benign or in your best interest. You cannot control whom they would tell. We therefore ask you to exercise discretion and good judgment in disclosing your interest in a position with the Agency. You will receive further guidance on this topic as you proceed through your CIA employment processing.

To Apply:

Make a note of the position(s) that interest you, as you can apply for up to four positions in one application. DO NOT submit multiple applications; this will only slow the review of your application, and delay processing. Please read the Application Instructions carefully before you begin the online application process.

Application Instructions

An equal opportunity employer and a drug-free work force.

There are other opportunities at this page. I just found it interesting. If the applicant is taking a legal drug will he/she be accepted? Please if you want to try any of these positions don't leave any comment. I don't want to know and I don't want to be in the list of suspects that know you got the job and is a CIA employee. OMG! Why did I publish this post?

Should I apply? Trouble is, to do a proper analysis, one needs an original, preferably spontaneous, piece of text, I find. Politicians have speech writers, so one would be analysing the speech writer, not the politician, most of the time! And then one would end up having to analyse body language, and all one would get from that is a load of closed, defensive signals, and one would have to try to correlate these to the subject matter that the politician was speaking about, at the time they said them. Even that would only give one a vague understanding of how comfortable they were with a particular subject - defensive body language might merely indicate a lack of confidence, or might be habitual, irrespective of how a person was actually feeling...

No, fuck that! It'd be too frustrating - I'd end up just making shit up!
