Job Description 

RF Research Engineer-22164 

 

Position Description
 

Do you have research experience in the RF engineering field?

 

Are you passionate about using innovation and technology to solve technical challenges involving the defense of the US?  

If so, this is the perfect opportunity for you.

 

As a RF Research Engineer, you will... 

Provide technical and team leadership for engineering efforts of Very Low Frequency through High Frequency signal data and analysis of effects on propagation through various media (atmosphere, soil, and sea water). Develop and execute test plans for data capture. Develop and lead internal and external research and development efforts.
 

  • Lead efforts to analyze VLF through HF signal data in a laboratory environment to include the development of methods of analysis.
  • Lead/support efforts to collect signal data from communications equipment and assess the impacts of EMI and environmental factors. Provide recommendations for improving the operational performance of antennas/receivers. 
  • Lead/support internally and externally funded research and development efforts to apply VLF/LF propagation characteristics to various (communications and other-than-communications) problem sets. 
  • Write reports detailing analysis results; provide formal and informal presentations of project efforts and results. 
  • Set up laboratory equipment for signal data collection. Troubleshoot equipment problems when necessary. 
  • Mentor junior engineers and provide training as necessary.

 

Qualifications

  • PhD in Electrical Engineering, Physics, or equivalent. 
  • Three or more years of theoretical or experimental experience with Very Low Frequency, Low Frequency, and/or High Frequency wave propagation and antennas; and/or ionospheric physics.
  • Operational experience with standard laboratory test equipment (e.g., spectrum / waveform analyzers, radios, signal generators, etc…).
  • Strong analysis and communication skills.
  • Experience with signal acquisition.
  • Experience with analysis and modeling tools (e.g., MATLAB, LabView, Mathematica, Origin, etc…).
  • Ability to occasionally travel for field tests and sponsor briefs. (~5%)
  • An ability to obtain a TS clearance. If selected, you will be subject to a government security clearance investigation and must meet the requirements for access to classified information. Eligibility requirements include U.S. citizenship.

 

You’ll go above and beyond our minimum requirements if you have:

  • PhD in Electrical Engineering, Physics, or equivalent. 
  • Fifteen or more years of theoretical or experimental experience with Very Low Frequency, Low Frequency, and/or High Frequency wave propagation and antennas; and/or ionospheric physics.
  • Previous field test experience.
  • Operational experience with standard laboratory test equipment (e.g., spectrum / waveform analyzers, radios, signal generators, etc…).
  • Strong analysis and communication skills.
  • Experience with signal acquisition, and analysis and modeling tools (e.g., MATLAB, LabView, Mathematica, Origin, etc…).
  • Active TS clearance.
