    Major Duties And Responsibilities

    The National Intelligence Council (NIC) consists of the most senior intelligence analysts supporting the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) in carrying out responsibilities as the head of the Intelligence Community (IC) and as the principal adviser to the President for intelligence matters related to national security. The NIC produces a variety of all-source, IC coordinated intelligence reports, including its flagship product, the National Intelligence Estimate, which represents the Intelligence Community's most authoritative statement on a key national security issue.

    Serve as a senior analyst and utility player on select global issues topics, such as the confluence of geopolitics with socio-economic trends, the emergence of nontraditional national security challenges, and provide surge capacity on high-level taskings and Global Trends. All analytic disciplines are welcome to apply. The selected candidate's experience and mission needs will determine the specific portfolio.

    Serve as a Strategic Futures Group (SFG) point of contact and expert resource for functional counterparts in the IC. In doing so, lead, initiate, cultivate, and maintain productive working relationships with the policy, defense, and intelligence communities, as well as policy committees and law enforcement agencies as appropriate, to support US strategy formulation, policy development, and contingency planning.

    Facilitate and manage frequent meetings among IC analysts to establish IC analytic and collection priorities on nontraditional and global challenges. Coordinate on relevant intelligence products for senior policy makers.

    Oversee and lead the production of a broad range of finished intelligence products in support of United States (US) foreign policy and national security interests.

    Engage with senior U.S. Government policymakers, National Security Council Staff, State Department, Department of Defense (DoD), and Combatant Command strategic planners on issues within the global issues portfolio. Brief senior IC members, policymakers, military decisionmakers, members of Congress, and other major stakeholders as necessary. Support the DNI representative to Deputies Committee (DC) and Principals Committee (PC) meetings on issues related to the analytic portfolio.

    Develop, lead, and oversee IC sessions, conferences, and other domestic and international forums to elicit insight from experts in support of NIC assessments. Represent the NIC at local and international meetings, conferences, workshops and other forums in support of the IC's analytic production.

    Foster and strengthen relationships among analysts from across the IC and with academia, think tanks, the business community, and other nongovernment subject matter experts to ensure that the IC has a comprehensive understanding of emerging transnational and transfunctional issues of strategic importance. Organize analytic exchanges and other forums to draw on expertise from outside the government to support IC analysis and written production.

    As required, provide process or substantive support to NIEs, DC/PC briefing packages, and PDB coordination.

    Contribute to discussions in the SFG centered on other strategic (global, transnational, and/or long-range) issues of importance to senior US policymakers, defense planners and/or warfighters.

    Recognize, value, build, and leverage diverse collaborative networks with the ODNI and across the IC.
