  • This 12-month position will build out DOJ’s crypto tracing and blockchain analysis capabilities, according to a Thursday job listing by the Criminal Division’s overseas development office.
  • Asia Pacific, Eastern Europe and Central Asia – regions DOJ said are rife with “sophisticated transnational organized crime threats” in the cybercrime and intellectual property underworld – will be a top focus for the adviser, according to the posting.
  • Applicants must attain or maintain a Top Secret security clearance as they work alongside DOJ’s Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section and the U.S. Transnational and High-Tech Crime Global Law Enforcement Network, according to the posting.
