The National Security Agency is expanding its operations here in San Antonio, and loves mathematicians...

Quote:
NSA Mathematicians spend their days focusing on some of today's most distinctive challenges and problems. They apply Number Theory, Group Theory, Finite Field Theory, Linear Algebra, Probability Theory, Mathematical Statistics, Combinatorics, and more. We encourage our Mathematicians to participate in interdisciplinary assignments and train with professionals in such fields as Computer Science and Signals Analysis.

Your education is far from complete when you join NSA. Both formal and informal seminars are routinely organized among our scholars to study specific, timely, Mathematics-related topics, while professional organizations sponsor regular discussions on issues of broader interest.

Career Paths in Mathematics
NSA Mathematicians apply their skills to such tasks as:

* Designing and analyzing complex algorithms
* Expressing difficult cryptographic problems in Mathematic terms
* Applying your work to find a solution or demonstrating that a solution cannot be found, given certain computational limitations and reasonable time limits

Transcripts are required when applying for Mathematics positions.
You can apply online using the above link.

Also look at USAJobs.com for other government opportunities in San Antonio. The Air Force has several organizations that could use your skills as a civilian...but be aware that most government jobs require a security clearance. I'd advise being sure you qualify before applying.

Good luck, and welcome to SA!

Cheers! M2

Or teach. NISD and NEISD don't pay too bad for someone starting out with a degree...

If you have a degree in communications and are interested in PR in San Antonio getting an in with the BMPR people is your best bet. The BMPR | Business Media PR Tweetup

and for career development in that area (if you are young..generation y) getting an online presence is probably really important...start at Brzen Careerist http://www.brazencareerist.com for that.
