At Charles River Analytics, we take great pride in our success at attracting and retaining the most talented and creative problem-solvers in the field. We are a 100% employee-owned company, encouraging participation, innovation, and responsibility from our entire staff. CRA has an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic computer scientist with expertise in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and computer vision to work on cutting-edge intelligent systems research applied to real-world challenges.

Example projects you would work on include:

  • Real-time vision systems for unmanned air, ground, sea, and space vehicles

  • Vision-based human pose tracking and gesture/action recognition for collaborative robotic platforms

  • Detecting emerging medical conditions based on data collected from cellphones

  • Classifying signals in vibrating machinery from 1D vibrometry data

At Charles River Analytics, you will develop and apply concepts crossing multiple fields including computer vision, machine learning, signal processing, and state estimation. You will work in tightly-knit, project-oriented teams with a Principal Investigator and other scientists and engineers to create prototypes of new research concepts that can be further developed into usable products. You will have the opportunity to design and execute your own research projects, growing into a Principal Investigator where you will pursue your own technical interests by building a portfolio of new work. You will also have the opportunity to attend conferences, have your work published, and move the state of the art forward.

  • Experience with image and/or signal processing methods

  • Ability to work both independently and within a team environment

  • US Citizenship with an ability to obtain a US Government security clearance

What does our ideal candidate have?

  • Masters (with 2+ years of related experience) or Ph.D. in Computer Science, Engineering, or related area

  • Experience with robotic/autonomous systems

  • Demonstrated experience building artificial intelligence applications in a general purpose programming language such as Python or C++

  • Experience directly interacting with customers and/or users

  • Experience translating user needs and system features into actionable requirements for engineering teams to produce technical solutions
