My name is Cliff Frieler and I have been a recruiter for Northrop Grumman at Purdue University for five years now. The small program I interview for is called the "Future Technical Leaders" or FTL program. It is a three year rotational program for top MS, PhD and post-doc new-hires from a select group of universities who are interested in seeing the range of product lines, business areas and customer groups a large company like Northrop Grumman engages.

 We are interested in students in any of the physical sciences, math or engineering disciplines, as FTL program participants are involved in projects throughout the company. In addition to CyberSecurity work for several customers, we have projects that would interest students in BioInformatics and projects in large data analytics and a research group pursuing Neuromorphic Vision in NoVA. And, of course, there are the better known business areas, such as satellites, manned and unmanned aircraft, Army vehicles and Naval network and communications, which employ the gamut of science and engineering practices.

 Notwithstanding this broad range of directly applicable skills, the FTL program is a strategic hiring program and we hire the intellect, not the specific skill set.  We are looking for sharp, inquisitive minds with a deep technical background, ready to broaden themselves and their perspective, particularly those with demonstrated leadership capability.

 There are a few requirements to be considered;

                U.S. Citizenship

               MS or PhD graduating by June 2015.

Academic achievement, evidenced by high GPA and/or excellent letters of recommendation

Students meeting these criteria and wanting to learn more are encouraged to attend a series of Zoom meetings I am hosting to discuss the program and answer your questions.

Please join in if you can.

Oxidative changes in hemoglobin are followed within red cells and their impact on cellular and subcellular levels are monitored.




FDA Labeling Changes for PREA Waivers Fellowship
Center for Drug Evaluation and Research | Silver Spring, MD | MONTHLY STIPEND PROVIDED

Under the guidance of a mentor, the participant will learn the mandated pediatric study requirements under the pediatric research equity act (PREA), gain an understanding of reasons for waiver (that is: any for cause exemption) for pediatric study requirements related to known safety issues with a drug, or expected lack of efficacy, gain hands-on experience leveraging publicly available (e.g., Drugs at FDA) and FDA proprietary (e.g., DARRTS) databases to provide data analysis for internal and external stakeholders via publication of results.




FDA Postdoctoral Research Opportunity in Stem Cell Therapy
Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research | Silver Springs, MD | MONTHLY STIPEND PROVIDED

Research is focused on studying the immunosuppression activity of human mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) used in cell therapy. Currently there is much interest in assessing the immune suppression activity of MSCs and the mechanism by which MSCs mediate this capacity. The training will include learning experimental approaches to produce MSCs under different conditions and aimed to optimize production of cell preparations with high immunosuppressive activity. The participant will also learn how to purify and evaluation different preparations of extracellular vesicles (EVs). Under the guidance of a mentor, the participant will learn techniques including immunological assays and computational prediction of MSC immunosuppressive activity. These techniques will be adopted to analyzing immunosuppressive activity of EVs as well as the MSCs that produce them.




FDA Postgraduate Research Opportunity in Engineered Therapeutic Proteins
Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research | Silver Springs, MD | MONTHLY STIPEND PROVIDED

This project is broadly related to the immunogenicity of therapeutic proteins. Proteins are increasingly used in therapy but they often elicit an undesirable immune response that reduces their efficacy and can compromise the safety of the patient.
