Subject: Job Announcement: Applied Quantitative analyst, clearance required

Dr. Davis-

I run a small team of qualitative and quantitative researchers for a DoD agency in Northern Virginia. We have immediate openings for someone with a strong statistics background and are very open to graduate students providing they can work full-time. We are looking for two positions at this time. I have never reached out directly to a university with a job vacancy, please let me know if it is not appropriate to contact departments directly.

Thank you for passing the information on,
Mark Dawson
