Event description

Description

On February 5, 2019, Dr. Steve Rabinowitz from the Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA) will be on campus to meet with students to discuss career opportunities in national security analysis.

IDA is a non-profit federally-funded think tank supporting the Department of Defense and other agencies with multi-disciplinary research. IDA assists the United States Government in addressing important national security issues, covering a spectrum of topics from basic science and system evaluations to cost analyses, policy, force structure, training, human-machine collaboration, cybersecurity, intelligence, and strategic planning. IDA is widely respected for the quality and objectivity of its analyses, performed in a stimulating and collegial work environment.

Full-time positions as Research Staff Members and Research Associates are available to qualified candidates with Masters and Doctoral degrees in a variety of STEM fields as well as social sciences. IDA also runs a Summer Associate program for graduate students and rising senior undergraduates and a two-year Science Policy Fellowship for recent bachelor’s and master’s degree recipients. Because all candidates must be eligible to obtain security clearance, U.S. citizenship is required.

Dr. Steve Rabinowitz is an alumnus of Columbia College (BA Physics 1984) and GSAS (PhD Physics 1992) as well as a Columbia parent (CC’19, BC’21). He has been working in IDA’s Operational Evaluation Division for 26 years, where he leads the Undersea Warfare task.


Event Attendance Policy

Columbia Engineering invests a considerable amount of resources to host professional development and leadership workshops because they enhance your experience, knowledge, and marketability. Many of these events have limited seating and we want our students to fully engage. As a result, we ask our students to adhere to the following policy for our offerings (Professional Development and Leadership classes and workshops, School signature events, department events, etc.) so that we can continue to offer and grow these initiatives: for each engagement, you may reserve a seat using Eventbrite. Please check-in at the beginning of the event and engage. If you cannot attend the event, we ask that you cancel at least (2) business days prior so we can offer the seat to another student. For example, for an event held on Monday, please cancel by Thursday, through Eventbrite, so we can give the seat to another student.

Excessive absences without cancellation may result in poor administrative standing. Students in poor administrative standing may not be eligible for the EGSC Professional Development Scholarship, Class Day Graduate Student Speaker or Marshall, Graduate Student Life Award, and other community activities and honors at the School and academic department levels. This may be in addition to any other sanction that your academic department may impose. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
