Job Description

GTRI is seeking a highly motivated individual with 3-12 years of work experience to join an established team of experts in performing research and development focused on the discovery and analysis of wireless communication system vulnerabilities. The Techniques Branch in CIPHER's Network Vulnerability Division (NVD) is focused on reverse engineering, vulnerability analysis, and the development and demonstration of RF-delivered techniques against wireless communications equipment. The candidate's primary responsibility will be to perform research in discovering and analyzing security vulnerabilities associated with a wide variety of wireless communication systems. Technical disciplines that may be required in these efforts include test, evaluation and reverse engineering of RF communications systems; development of software defined radio (SDR) algorithms to support reverse engineering and testing; communications theory; RF signal collection and analysis; communication protocol analysis; software reverse engineering and vulnerability analysis; and countermeasures and vulnerability analysis for RF communication systems. The candidate is required to have strong skills in at least two of these disciplines. Skills in software reverse engineering, computer programming, or working with test and measurement equipment are a plus. The candidate will be expected to support sponsor briefings and prepare technical deliverables.
