We are currently looking for a Junior Quantitative Analyst located in The Hague in the Research domain.
You will participate in technical-scientific research projects that aim to support Defence in making better decisions. This can be done on many fronts. From the purchase and maintenance of equipment onboard ships to the preparation and execution of military operations. Together with your colleagues, you will analyze qualitative and quantitative data (obtained through self-executed simulation), you devise concepts and algorithms, and you make recommendations that have an impact on the work of military units, policy makers and politicians, both nationally and internationally.

Your heart is in technology and innovation. You also prefer to serve a social purpose. Experience or affinity with the domain of defence and security is an advantage. But no point if it isn't already. With us, you will soon discover how fascinating and versatile this world is. Because you will be working in an innovative R&D environment, it is also important that you are analytically strong, have great abstract thinking skills and can contribute ideas about translating science into practice.
