MIT Lincoln Laboratory Signal Processing Research and Development Engineer (Technical Staff) in Lexington, Massachusetts

The Advanced Capabilities and Systems Group is an agile, innovative, multi-disciplinary team developing novel system and technology concepts that address the nation’s critical security challenges. The group leverages focused analysis to understand solutions to defense and intelligence problems, and then develops the solutions in a fast cycle of experimentation and prototyping. Frequent engagements with government intelligence and military users connect the group to their unique missions and needs. Projects range from the analysis and prototyping of tactical military optics and radar systems, to investigation of novel communication, navigation, and autonomous systems. The multi-disciplinary team consists of talented technical staff with expertise in electromagnetics, optics, signal processing (communication, GPS), RF and antenna design, statistics, optimization, computer vision, machine learning, autonomous control, software engineering, embedded systems and programming, and mechanical design.

The candidate will conduct research and development of adaptive multidimensional sensor signal and image processing algorithms for detection, estimation, classification, and localization. Sensor types may include arrays of optical, acoustic or electromagnetic sensors. Work will involve the development of novel algorithms, planning and executing data collection campaigns, and data analysis in support of algorithm development. Strong candidates will have excellent analytical skills coupled with an ability to apply a systems-engineering approach to complex problems.

Position Requirements:

  • PhD in Electrical Engineering, Physics, Applied Mathematics, or similar field. In lieu of a PhD, an MS in the above areas with a minimum of 5 years of directly related experience will be considered.

Desired Skills

  • Experience in advanced signal processing techniques, data analysis tools (e.g., MATLAB), and C or C++ programming experience is strongly desired.
