~Eartha Kitt

This issue of DEFCON 1 comes to you from Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Welcome to the latest edition of the number one Defense Career

Opportunities Newsletter, “DEFCON-1,” a networking newsletter featuring job opportunities and career advice for those who are part of the global defense, aerospace, maritime, marine technology and security industry. DEFCON 1 brings you job opportunities every week, and counts on members like you to submit job listings to share and post in this newsletter.

Help the network grow. Sign up a friend. They can join for free simply by sending a blank email to DCO-subscribe@topica.com.

When you learn about a job opportunity in the defense sector, such as a position that comes open with your company, you send me the title, organization, location, and a brief description; link; or contact information, and I’ll share. This is a cooperative network. That means everyone’s participation is required to provide job opportunities to share.

Transitioning, or changing your e-mail address? Don't forget to change your DEFCON – 1 subscription. To unsubscribe, send a blank e-mail from the old account to DCO-unsubscribe@topica.com. Then a blank e-mail from your new account to DCO-subscribe@topica.com. I cannot do this for you.

I never give out, rent, or sell my list, and neither does Topica.

Double Eagle – Operating with or without a tether

By Edward Lundquist

*** The Office of Naval Research (ONR) is gathering leaders from the Department of the Navy (DoN), industry, academia and nonprofits to partner on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) initiatives at a conference scheduled June 15-16.

Over the course of the two-day event, to be held at the Hilton Mark Center in Alexandria, Va., senior Navy leaders will outline their vision for the service's STEM program; explore partnership opportunities with participants; and discuss education outreach and research.

The forum's featured Navy speakers include Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus, Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Gary Roughead and Chief of Naval Research Rear Adm. Nevin Carr.

Aimed at increasing the pool of future naval scientists and engineers, the DoN has a long history of supporting STEM education and outreach. In fiscal 2010, the DoN invested $58 million in 170 STEM-related educational programs. That same year, the Secretary of the Navy made an aggressive pledge to double naval STEM investment over the next five years.

To register for the 2011 Naval STEM Forum, go to www.onr.navy.mil/en/Conference-Event-ONR/STEM-Forum/STEM-Forum-Registration.aspx. For more information, visit www.onr.navy.mil/Conference-Event-ONR/STEM-Forum.aspx.
