Employer Description

With a total workforce of about 4,000, the Army Research Laboratory (ARL), The Army Research Office’s parent organization, hires civilian, military and contractor employees for careers in a variety of occupations at ARL locations across the United States.

From biologists to statisticians, ARL is looking for talented and dedicated employees. ARL offers Federal health and dental, work-life, time off programs, and retirement benefits.

Job Description

The Physics Division of the Army Research Office (ARO) in Research Triangle Park, NC, is actively looking to fill a position of program manager to lead an innovative, high pay-off, basic research program in the area of quantum optics.

The research breakthroughs derived from the program would ultimately lead to the development of critical new technologies and capabilities to empower future U.S. Army Soldiers. The program manager will be expected to maintain on-going awareness of recent developments in the field of quantum optics, as well as, conduct workshops and studies to identify new emerging opportunities for future investments.
