The Department of Homeland Security is looking for experts from the private sector who help bring to market the technology developed by its Science and Technology Directorate.
The department opened applications Thursday for one or more “commercialization” senior advisers, according to the assignment announcement. The new positions fall under the Loaned Executive Program, which brings in full-time, unpaid experts from the private sector to the federal government on a six-month loan.
“The Department is looking to the nation’s top executives and industry experts to partner with us as we strive to solve problems, improve processes, and fully realize our mission,” according to DHS’ website. “By serving as a loaned executive, you will have an opportunity to make a meaningful difference by protecting our nation.”
The successful applicants will advise leadership and project teams on developing and refining their plans to bring their research to market, and also help the directorate improve its engagement with the private sector.
The application deadline is April 8. The loaned executive would have the option for a six-month renewal.
