At Northrop Grumman, we’ve developed the Future Technical Leaders (FTL) Program - a strategic, three-year, professional development program aimed at identifying and investing in our next generation of visionary leaders in business, engineering, management, research, strategy, systems architecture, systems engineering, technology, and other critical areas. U.S. citizenship is required, as well as the ability to obtain a security clearance.

We are currently recruiting top Doctoral and Master’s graduates (including Post-Docs) from a select list of top universities from across the country, including the University of Illinois, to join a vibrant, inclusive, diverse, challenging, and collegial cohort. All STEM majors and specialties will be considered!

We are looking for adaptive, ambitious, collaborative, creative, curious individuals that:

  • Have an established, strong, technical background
  • Have demonstrated leadership capability (broadly defined – ideas, initiatives, etc.)
  • Are open to broadening their knowledge, experience, and perspectives
  • Are eager to embark upon a new adventure
  • Want a unique opportunity to launch their career
  • Desire to serve as transformational leaders in a company of approximately 90,000 people


We will be hosting a virtual information session on:

Thursday, September 8, from 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM CT

To attend our information session, please register by emailing us your resume:

Email Alex Duda at for:

  • PhD, Electrical & Computer Engineering
  • MS, Applied Mathematics
  • BS, Engineering Physics


Email Bradley DeBlauw at for:

  • PhD, MS, BS, Aerospace Engineering


Zoom details and the application forms will be sent back via email to registered individuals.

Applications to the program will require academic and non-academic letters of reference and graduate & undergraduate transcripts. Completed application packets should be received no later than September 19th. Please contact us with questions regarding the application process and eligibility considerations.

Current cycle candidates should be interested and available to start employment within the next calendar year. If you are not planning to graduate and/or start employment in the next year, still consider reaching out to start the conversation so we can stay in touch.

Preference will be given to those willing to relocate annually for the duration of the three-year rotation program. Relocation allowances are included annually through the FTL Program.

We are seeking leaders that will push technology farther, dream bigger, and make the world safer than ever. Let’s Define Possible and do the work that matters – together.
