Subject: Research for Intelligence & Security Challenges Initiative internships Description: The Applied Research Laboratory for Intelligence and Security (ARLIS) at the University of Maryland, College Park, is seeking outstanding senior undergraduate and graduate students to participate in the virtual Research for Intelligence & Security Challenges (RISC) Initiative internship program. This exciting 10-week paid program will pair students with mentors from UMD campus and the Department of Defense (DOD) and Intelligence Community (IC) community, and offer the potential opportunity to be considered for future employment with the US government, to include possible sponsorship for a security clearance. Students will be introduced to career opportunities with the DoD and IC as well as develop their technical capabilities through hands-on real-world problems across a range of disciplines. Project topics will be posed by government operators, and supported with realistic data sets and other materials. While specific topics are in development, the missions supported are likely to include augmenting intelligence analysis with machines, geospatial analysis and human geography, disinformation, insider risk, and critical technology protection. The RISC Initiative is particularly seeking interns with expertise in one or more of the following disciplines: Computer Science, Information Science & Engineering Mathematics and Statistics Social & Behavioral Sciences Library Sciences Additional topics include evaluation of learning outcomes, environmental modeling and remote sensing, human factors, and regulatory public policy..
