Job Description

GTRI's Signal and Systems Exploitation Program Office housed in the Sensors and Electromagnetic Applications Laboratory (SEAL) is looking for a senior researcher with interest and experience in radar systems engineering and the development of enhanced and new radar and RF sensing capabilities. The radar systems are related to a broad range of radar types to include airborne intercept, airborne ISR, ground-based air surveillance, surface-to-air missile, etc. The ideal candidate will have demonstrated relevant experience in radar systems and in one or more of following areas: signal processing, data processing, tracking algorithms and related topics. The candidate is also expected to understand the key performance drivers and characteristics of the entire radar system. This position involves developing the design and assessing the characteristics and performance of a radar from limited and incomplete data as well as the development of RF sensing capabilities to characterize threat systems.

The candidate is also expected to understand the key performance drivers and characteristics of entire radar systems. The primary focus of this position is developing the design and assessing the characteristics and performance of a radar from limited and incomplete data. The secondary focus is development of RF sensing capabilities to characterize threat systems. The candidate should be comfortable dealing with incomplete data and uncertainty.

The ideal candidate will have specific research interest and experience in the management, development, testing, field trials, and fielding of novel, complex RF systems. These should include radar systems, electronic warfare systems, and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) systems and will have 8 or more years experience directly related to the projects and customers currently assigned to this branch. They will have strong problem solving skills and the ability to develop creative solutions to complex technical and managerial problems. This candidate will have demonstrated success in developing funded research, and have an established track record in interfacing with current and/or potential customers expected to result in funded research programs of interest to this unit.
