Counterterrorism analysts assess developments related to terrorism worldwide in support of US policymakers. They monitor and assess the leadership, motivations, plans and intentions of foreign terrorist groups and their state and non-state sponsors. Counterterrorism analysts also produce a range of current and longer-term intelligence products, brief key US policymakers and provide tactical analytic support to law enforcement and intelligence operations. Agency analysts are encouraged to maintain and broaden their professional ties through academic study, contacts and attendance at professional meetings. They may also choose to pursue additional studies in fields relevant to their areas of responsibility. Opportunities exist for foreign travel, language training, analytic and management training, and assignments in other offices in the Agency and throughout the US Government.
