MIT Lincoln Laboratory Radar Engineer in Lexington, Massachusetts
The Airborne Radar Systems and Techniques Group develops radar technology solutions for defense-related intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions. The group develops and prototypes new capabilities at the system and subsystem level, leveraging advances in RF and signal processing technology, to provide new capabilities against emerging threats. Challenging problems are analyzed in a comprehensive manner by studying the underlying physics, current and emerging signal processing and hardware technology, experimental data, and system operating concepts in order to innovate next-generation systems. The group leverages highly-integrated RF subsystems, processing techniques (including MIMO, waveform design, adaptive processing), and electronic protection to enhance detection and tracking in challenging geophysical and signal environments. The group's programs typically entail phenomenology-based data collection, data-driven algorithm development, and culminate in field test and evaluation. Principal staff expertise in the group includes system engineering, digital signal processing, radar tracking and imaging, experimental physics, and hardware development and integration.
A radar engineer with a strong background in hardware, EW, and/or radar signal processing is needed to architect and develop airborne radar systems and prototypes. The position will focus on development, implementation, test, and evaluation of advanced airborne radar and electronic warfare (EW) technologies with an emphasis on airborne surveillance radars performing moving target indication (MTI), synthetic aperture radar (SAR), inverse synthetic aperture radar (ISAR), high range resolution (HRR) target imaging, and machine learning-based image exploitation. The ideal candidate should have a broad understanding of radar systems, but should also be capable of diving deep into one or more of the various aspects of concept realization, some examples of which are radar architecture, RF hardware, and signal processing.
Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, Physics, Applied Math or related field.
In lieu of a Ph.D., an MS in the above areas with a minimum of 5 years of directly related experience will be considered.
In addition, 5 years or more of relevant design experience, a hands-on system realization and testing background is preferred.
Candidates must possess demonstrated team leadership qualities, and effective communications skills.
Candidates must be able to obtain a DoD security clearance.
