MIT Lincoln Laboratory Signal Processing Engineer in Lexington, Massachusetts
The Advanced RF Techniques and Systems Group develops and demonstrates new algorithms, architectures, and hardware implementations for processing signals for a broad range of RF system applications, including advanced wireless communications and signals intelligence. The group's core competencies include developing algorithms and system concepts for communication, signal detection, localization, and classification in challenging environments, as well as hardware implementations and prototypes of these advanced RF systems. The group has expertise in adaptive antenna array processing, signal detection and estimation, pattern recognition, multichannel communications, wideband sampling techniques, antenna and RF subsystem design, and systems analysis. The staff members have advanced degrees in electrical engineering, physics, and applied mathematics. To support concept development and evaluation, the group conducts a significant amount of field tests and data collection campaigns, and collaborates with other groups within the division and throughout the Laboratory in real-time prototype implementation, experiment execution, and systems analysis.
The Group is seeking a candidate for a Signal Processing Engineer role. The individual will participate in the development of signal processing algorithms for advanced communication systems. Work will involve scientific programming for modeling and simulations, field data analysis, and field test planning, and potentially prototype real-time embedded algorithm implementation. Occasional travel to field sites to participate in measurement may be required.
Qualifications: MS in Electrical Engineering, Physics, Applied Mathematics or similar technical field is required. In lieu of an MS, a BS with 3+ years of directly related experience will be considered. Experience with Software Defined Radios (SDRs) is highly desired.
