The Advanced Concepts & Technologies Group develops technology to protect land and sea assets from air and missile threats, which operate in a rapidly evolving complex Electronic Warfare (EW) environment. The group’s research and development activities span a wide spectrum including concept development, advanced algorithms development, prototyping, experimental field-testing, and analysis of systems and data. Of particular interest to the group is the development of: software-reconfigurable electronic warfare systems and prototypes, advanced signal processing algorithms for signal exploitation, resource coordination techniques for enhanced battle management, and artificial intelligence to enable the development of next generation countermeasures, sensors, and enhanced human-machine teaming for fleet defense. Due to the wide-ranging nature of research, this dynamic group is comprised of a diverse team of scientists and engineers with expertise in physics, mathematics, computer science, and various engineering backgrounds. The group values inclusiveness, fosters mentoring at all levels, and promotes critical and innovative thinking to address the needs of the warfighter.

Job Description

Recent advances in digital signal processing have revolutionized many domains, including having a major influence in radar and electronic warfare (EW) systems that must observe, exploit and deny the increasingly complex and hostile electronic magnetic (EM) spectrum. Group 39 seeks a researcher with background in statistical signal processing and related areas that may be applied to radar and EW systems. The candidate should be able to quickly learn EW and RF systems concepts and work with a diverse team of systems and mission experts to apply techniques that have practical value to the DoD community. The candidate should be able to work well in teams and is expected to effectively participate in fast-paced, multi-disciplinary teams of system design, system integration, and signal analysis engineers and scientists. Candidate should be a motivated self-starter with the ability and interest to learn new application areas and leverage knowledge in physics, mathematics, or related engineering fields to solve complex problems.  Significant experience with application of signal processing and/or AI/ML techniques is desired. Knowledge and experience with design and analysis tools such as MATLAB or equivalent is required. Demonstrated oral and written communications skills are necessary. 

Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Applied Mathematics, Physics or related field. In lieu of a Ph.D., a Master's degree with 5+ years of directly relevant experience
