Job Description

The Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) in Washington, D.C. is seeking an RF Signals and Systems Engineer to support the Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance Division (ISRD) of the Sensors and Electromagnetic Applications Laboratory (SEAL). The role of this position is to conduct research in RF systems engineering and signal processing as applied to intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) systems including radar, Electronic Intelligence (ELINT), and Measurement and Signature Intelligence (MASINT). Specific duties may include performing sensor and architecture modeling; systems trade study analysis; signal processing algorithm definition and development; Modeling and Simulation (M&S) of sensors and systems at low, medium and high fidelity; and system performance prediction.

The successful candidate will be able to abstract a first principles understanding of electromagnetic, physical and signal processing effects to help understand and predict system level performance as part of sponsored research in close collaboration with other scientists and engineers. The candidate will be involved in a team environment consisting of GTRI, Government, Academia, and Industry partners. This position also requires excellent communication skills in order to convey analysis, design and trade spaces to the customer and end users, and to assist in the description of required current and future capabilities. The candidate will be required to write technical papers to summarize the research and to assist the Project Director in defining new research opportunities.
