MIT Lincoln Laboratory RF Communications Engineer in Lexington, Massachusetts

The Advanced RF Techniques and Systems Group develops and demonstrates new algorithms, architectures, and hardware implementations for processing signals for a broad range of RF system applications, including advanced wireless communications and signals intelligence. The group's core competencies include developing algorithms and system concepts for communication, signal detection, localization, and classification in challenging environments, as well as hardware implementations and prototypes of these advanced RF systems. The group has expertise in adaptive antenna array processing, signal detection and estimation, pattern recognition, multichannel communications, wideband sampling techniques, antenna and RF subsystem design, and systems analysis. The staff members have advanced degrees in electrical engineering, physics, and applied mathematics. To support concept development and evaluation, the group conducts a significant amount of field tests and data collection campaigns, and collaborates with other groups within the division and throughout the Laboratory in real-time prototype implementation, experiment execution, and systems analysis.

Group 62 is seeking a candidate for a Lead Software Engineer role. The individual will architect and implement software for prototype communications systems. The candidate's work will involve decomposition of newly developed communications algorithms into executable software tasks, oversight of small software teams for efficient implementation, and support of prototype system demonstrations. Occasional travel to field sites to participate in demonstrations may be required. The candidate is expected to lead a team of experienced software engineers. The candidate will focus on rapid development processes and secure software implementation practices.

Qualifications: PhD in a relevant field, or minimum of 8-10 years applicable software experience with MS in a relevant field. Relevant fields are Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, or similar technical field. Knowledge of modern software development techniques is required. Familiarity with digital signal processing techniques for communications is desired.
