WASHINGTON (AFP) - The National Security Agency (NSA) is looking for a few good cybersnoops.

This week's furore over top-secret collection of phone records and online data isn't deterring the US government's electronic intelligence-gathering service from placing help-wanted posts on its @NSACareers Twitter feed.

Experts in computer security, malware or cryptography can apply for the three-year Digital Network Exploitation Analyst Development Program, which seeks to develop individuals "who can perform discovery and target technology analysis of digital network and mobile communications".

"Graduates of this programme are aggressively sought after because of their in-depth knowledge and breadth of experiences," according to a job description at www.nsa.gov linked to the NSA Twitter feed.
