Submit Resume ID: 496358
Type: Researchers
Location: Atlanta, GA
Categories: Algorithm Development, Electronic Warfare, ISR & Tactical Systems, Modeling/Simulation, Radar, Signal Processing

Job Description

The Sensors and Electromagnetic Applications Laboratory (SEAL) Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance Division (ISRD) is looking for a Junior Algorithm Developer who can think outside of the box and is looking for a dynamic and challenging work environment. The ISR Division’s projects focus on advanced signal processing, adaptive sensor technologies, advanced algorithms, machine learning, and modeling and simulation for applications that include airborne radar, electronic warfare, and undersea systems. The division supports work across many branches of the Department of Defense (DoD), including the Air Force, Navy, and Office of the Secretary of Defense. Key products include physics-based modeling and simulation tools, system analyses, sensor signal processing algorithms, and real-time prototypes. The ideal candidate will be an entry to a mid-level researcher with a desire to apply engineering, physics, and math to radar ISR problems of interest to the DoD.

Job Duties

Researchers will be expected to participate in the execution of at least two projects, including attending technical meetings, completing assigned technical tasks, collaborating with colleagues, and presenting their research to the technical team and technical sponsors. Tasking will be assigned to leverage the existing skills of the candidate, including physics-based modeling, application of advanced mathematical techniques for data processing, digital signal processing, image processing, signals analysis, radar system modeling, and radar performance prediction. The ideal candidate will be expected to develop relationships with current and potential customers and contribute to whitepapers and proposals.
