is there a Marines MOS equivalent to Air Force AFSC 9S100?

i am going to enlist, having a hard time deciding which branch to go with. if i go with air force i will try to get a job as a technical applications specialist, 9S100. was wondering if there is one and what the equivalent in the marines would be. i already know how selective the air force is regarding this specialty. i have not taken the EDPT or a practice EDPT but have scored 99 on three separate occasions taking the practice ASVAB. if i cant get 9S100, because it is unavailable, then i was looking into PMEL (2P031) or signal intelligence (1N431, 1N531). what would be the marine equivalents of these, if any?


9S100 - Technical Application Specialist (fancy name for a scientist)

2P031 - PMEL (Precision Measurement Equipment Laboratory)

1N431 - Network Intelligence Analyst

1N531 - Electrical Signals Intelligence Exploitation

    Each branch has a similar intel aspect, yes the Marines have SIGINT, but you should include the MOS as a written aspect (job name) and not simply the alphanumeric job designator because each branch has a different designator for the same jobs.
