Job Description

This job is for a full-time research faculty position in the Electro-Optical Systems Innovation Division (EOSID) with the Electro-Optical Systems Laboratory (EOSL) at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI). The main responsibility will be providing expertise in the full imaging chain to conceptualize, design, analyze, build, and test optical systems that meet customer requirements and internal research goals.The job provides opportunities to develop advanced technology and publish research.

EOSID’s research is performed in the areas of Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR), Intelligent Sensors and Imaging Systems (ISIS), and Active Electro-Optic Systems. Our team designs, builds, and tests the hardware in the entire imaging chain. Key technical areas include Hyperspectral and Multispectral Imaging Processing; EO System and Component Analysis and Characterization; Optical Imaging and Tagging; and Airborne Lidar System Design, Construction, and Operation for real-time topography, FOPEN, and bathymetry.

We offer a flexible work environment allowing each researcher to pursue his or her interests and strengths, integrated with the overall mission of the branch and the lab. If you have aspirations for an advanced degree, all the better. Because GTRI is a research unit within Georgia Tech, you can get your graduate school paid for and pursue an additional engineering, science or math degree you desire from a world class research institution. We highly encourage our research developers to pursue advanced technical degrees and professional development courses.
