MIT Lincoln Laboratory Technical Staff in Lexington, Massachusetts
The Interceptor and Sensor Technology Group supports the development of advanced technologies and systems for application to sensors and interceptor missiles for use in future surveillance, missile defense and air defense systems. Our diverse and innovative team supports programs in the development of air and space-based visible and infrared sensors, novel tracking algorithms as well as interceptor technologies for missile defense including advanced control, guidance, and seeker and missile system technology. We develop and participate on a wide range of activities including system analysis, prototyping of advanced electro-optical sensors and algorithms, laboratory testing and advanced phenomenology, mission simulations and modeling, field and flight tests, and data analysis and exploitation.
The Interceptor and Sensor Technology Group is looking for a candidate to join our team to work on a variety of projects that involve: analysis of field and flight test measurements, prototyping, experiments and modeling of rocket and hypersonic vehicles, interceptor seeker analysis and modeling, development of advanced optimal control algorithms. Our group engages in all phases of critical problem solving from: simulation and performance modeling of phenomenology and systems to prototyping of algorithms or hardware for rapid and innovative technology testing and transition. Candidates that would like to join our diverse and talented team should have good analytic skills and experience in solving unique and challenging problems.
Our team thrives on excitement to learn to apply unique solutions to challenging problems. The successful candidate will be given the opportunity to learn about advanced technology and our mission space from seasoned technical staff while applying their skillset to our projects.
PhD or MS with 3+ years relevant experience will also be considered; Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Optics, Physics or Mathematics. Demonstrated balance of both working independently and coordinating with a team.
Experience with modeling aerospace systems, missile guidance systems, or phenomenology is highly desired. Experience with algorithm development, simulation of complex systems, hardware prototyping, (e.g. tools: MATLAB, Python, or C++/JAVA).
