Other AOIMSG vacancies?

As there were two AOIMSG positions advertised, I wondered if there were others? So, I went to the website where vacancies are advertised for the Intelligence Community Civilian Joint Duty Program. Listed here are the vacancies for the AOIMSG Analysis Lead and the AOIMSG Collection Lead as described above. I failed to locate any current vacancies for other AOIMSG positions, either within the OUSDI or other IC agency listed there. Interestingly, I note that in the vacancy details for both the AOIMSG Collection Lead and the AOIMSG Analysis Lead, there is mention of “the AOIMSG Reporting Lead,” suggestive of a third position, either already created or to be created in future. 

The ODNI website also has an area titled “Career opportunities.”  A search of vacancies listed there failed to find any AOIMSG related positions. 

However, I noticed that on the ODNI website, there is an area describing what “Joint Duty” is, and there is a sentence:

“Are you interested in exploring Joint Duty, but don’t see an opportunity that interest you? Never fear, only select opportunities are posted on this site! For a full listing of all available opportunities, visit the classified web site at jointduty.ic.gov.”
