Analyst – Technical

ASPI’s International Cyber Policy Centre(ICPC) has an outstanding opportunity for a talented and passionate technically-focused analyst to join its growing centre.

ASPI is an independent, non-partisan think tank that produces expert and timely advice for the Indo-Pacific’s strategic, defence & policy leaders. The ICPC is a large centre within ASPI that works on a range of topics including traditional cyber-security challenges, espionage & interference, emerging and critical technologies (such as 5G and smart cities), information operations and warfare, cyber-capacity building in the Indo-Pacific, and issues related to surveillance and human rights.

The ICPC is looking for a creative and passionate individual who can contribute unique technical skills to work across a range of projects in the centre. This individual may possess skills and experience in one or more of the following areas including malware analysis, mobile-app reverse-engineering and/or a deep technical knowledge of critical technologies.   

Staff in APSI’s ICPC have diverse backgrounds and are usually involved in several projects at once. This individual will work to senior staff within the Centre. There will be opportunities to both work in a collaborative team environment and work on solo projects.

The successful candidate will be offered a remuneration package at a level aligned with their demonstrated skills and expertise. This is a contract position for an initial 1 year term with the option of extension.

At any one time ASPI has multiple people working at the institute who are on secondments or unpaid leave from the Australian Public Service (APS). Similar arrangements - including secondments - can be negotiated in this instance pending approval from the APS department/agency.

ASPI promotes a workplace that actively seeks to include, welcome and values unique contributions of all people. The institute strongly encourages people from diverse cultural backgrounds including applicants from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander backgrounds to apply. The position can be flexible to suit the successful applicant, including part time working arrangements.
