DoD STEM: Careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics

Interested in a career in science, technology, engineering or mathematics? Apply for a job with DoD STEM and get a taste for everything from basic research to applied systems. If you have always wanted a career in designing robots, engineering airplanes, or crafting inventions and technologies that will change the world, then DoD STEM Laboratories are the right place for you. The first people to invent the internet and GPS were once young professionals who had new and highly innovative ideas that were backed by the Department of Defense. DoD STEM does the same for the current generation for inventions in robotics, artificial intelligence, mechanical engineering, and more! At the Department of Defense, our people are the military’s most enduring advantage. DoD continually seeks to increase development of a representative, world-class STEM talent pool capable of filling our workforce needs and providing continuous access to STEM talent throughout the Nation. You don’t have to be a member of the military to work for the DoD as a STEM scientist or engineer. It is a great way to give back to your country and be a part of something bigger. With labs located across the country with innovative, diverse, and creative environments, working for the DoD means being surrounded by intelligent people who are laser focused on forwarding science and technology through innovation. DoD STEM also provides great benefits for employees obtaining an education. The SMART Scholar program offers the opportunity to be paid a full salary while working part-time and going to school full time — all of this happening while having a guaranteed job when you finish. We understand that putting education first allows our employees to be their best. Watch our videos to see all of the different science, engineering, technology and mathematics jobs and programs available.
