The Office of Investigations (OI), Computer Crimes Division (CCD) personnel conduct very complex and sensitive investigations involving a wide range of technical skills sets related to computer security and computer forensics. These investigations, by their very nature, are fast-paced, complex, and often international in scope and effect. CCD personnel provide critical computer forensics support to an increasing percentage of all the criminal and administrative investigations conducted by the NASA OIG. This support includes the planning and execution of large scale search warrants involving the seizure, proper safeguarding and accurate analysis of very large data sets involving a wide array of IT hardware, firmware, file formats, and operating systems.

The Program provides students with paid opportunities to work and gain valuable on-the-job training and experience while still in school. This program further exposes students to jobs in the Federal civil service by providing meaningful development work at the beginning of their career, before their careers paths are fully established.

That and similar positions require a security clearance so unfortunately, no.
