Are there any research careers in mathematics that don't involve teaching?

I would love to do maths all my life but I don't want to teach. What kind of job should I get?

NSA, DARPA, and other government organizations hire mathematicians.I would love to do maths all my life but I don't want to teach. What kind of job should I get?

You may want to note that the NSA is mainly crypto, ie algebra and number theory.NSA, DARPA, and other government organizations hire mathematicians.

DARPA and the others are going to be applied math/engineering type positions.

And your opinion is wrong, as can be proven by a single counter example (and there are many)In my opinion there is no career in mathematics beside a teacher though maths is a very important subject because from past few years science is ruling.

I have heard tale of permanent jobs (in arbitrary universities) in France without teaching. However, they do not pay very well...

Actually, I would say that NSA is a remarkable place, because it is about the only non-academic institution in the world where you can pretty much do any math you want. They use just about every field of math at NSA.NSA, DARPA, and other government organizations hire mathematicians.
