Are you a University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) student who is interested in teaching?


Northrop Grumman will be on the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) campus to provide information about their Future Technical Leaders Program (FTL)- a professional development opportunity aimed at identifying and investing in Northrop Grumman’s next generation of technologists, engineers, architects and leaders.

The FTL Program is seeking talented STEM MS and PhD 2016-2017 graduates from UMBC interested in learning more about their exclusive three year rotational program working side-by-side with senior technical management. It’s the chance of a lifetime—one that only a few receive. To be eligible for the FTL Program, you must be at the top of your class in a Master’s or Doctoral program. Due to the classified nature of the work, you must be a U.S. citizen and able to obtain a security clearance.

Selected individuals spend three years working on a variety of critical projects that provide specialized training, networking opportunities, mentoring by senior technologists, and management visibility.

Northrop Grumman will be selecting UMBC candidates to interview from this event!  Please bring resumes with you.

Come out and meet technical experts, leadership and hiring staff to learn more about their business, customers, industry and career paths within their organization.

I am a current Master's student in the Biological Sciences Department of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. I work in Dr. Jeff Leips' research laboratory where I spend my time researching about genes that affect the immune system across age. While working on my thesis project, I had provided training in making laboratory solutions and in utilizing laboratory equipment (examples: WASPII plater, microinjector, ProtoCoL machine) to seven undergraduate students. During my time as a graduate student, I have directly managed and mentored six undergraduate students. I also work as a graduate assistant for both Maryland's PROMISE AGEP and the Campus-Wide Career-Life Balance Initiative at the University of Maryland Baltimore County, which officially launched in May 2015. For my graduate assistantship, I am establishing a website, which will serve as a central repository for career-life balance resources. Resources include, but are not limited to: career-life balance campus policies and seminars/workshops that advocate career-life balance and/or the wellness of the individual. While working on the website, I am assisting in organizing future career-life balance workshops and seminars. My main website is:
