INTERNAL TITLE: Research Engineer/Scientist I or II, or Senior Research Engineer/Scientist

POSITION SUMMARY:

Design and Analyze High Power Radar Transmitters

Experienced electrical engineer needed with expertise in high power radar transmitters and must have a broad, fundamental understanding of basic analog and digital circuit design, RF test and measurement techniques, and data analysis tools.  The selected candidate will contribute to the following efforts:

  • Radar transmitter systems engineering
  • Technical analysis efforts on existing high power transmitters for radar systems or other electronic warfare systems such as jammers; and
  • Design and build high-power radar transmitter and high-voltage, high-power electronic hardware.

Radar transmitter hardware development efforts will include the design and integration of electrical and electro-mechanical hardware including cabling, circuit boards, and multiple hardware assemblies into complex systems.

REQUIREMENTS THAT MUST BE MET TO BE CONSIDERED FOR THIS POSITION:

  • US Citizenship AND/ OR the ability to get a security clearance
  • BS, MS, or PhD in Electrical Engineering or equivalent required.
  • 2-11 years of high power transmitter design experience
