Do you have an inquisitive mindset? Do you thrive on solving abstract problems? Do you want to leverage your skills to make a meaningful difference in the world? Then come and learn about who CNA is, what we do, and how you can be the difference! CNA has been committed to changing people’s lives through our advanced analytical research since 1942, when the U.S. Navy needed our help against German submarine warfare during WWII.
CNA is an objective research and analysis organization. We run the Navy’s Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) and the Institute for Public Research (IPR). We’ve done research for the Navy, the Marine Corps, and the Department of Defense for over 70 years, and, about 20 years ago, we started a domestic research line—IPR. Under IPR, we work on projects for the Department of Education, the Department of Justice, the Federal Aviation Administration, and a long list of other agencies and foundations. Due to the many research areas that CNA engages in, we are seeking graduate degree-holders in the sciences, engineering, and social sciences areas.
