MIT Lincoln Laboratory Tech Staff - RF Engineer in Lexington, Massachusetts
The Advanced Concepts and Technologies Group develops radar, electronic warfare, and systems technologies for use in future air defense systems. Of particular interest is the development of robust electronic warfare technologies and advanced signal processing techniques to enable the next generation of land, shipboard and airborne surveillance sensors. Major activities within the group include system concept development, modeling and simulation, signal processing algorithm design, prototype system design and development, and experimental field-testing and data analysis.
The candidate will develop RF prototypes for radar and electronic warfare applications. The candidate must contribute on efforts that may span wide frequency ranges, from VHF to millimeter wave frequencies. The candidate is expected to design and test RF sub-systems such as transmit/receive modules, up and down-converters, and antennas. System level development and test for field experiments using RF, embedded processing, and other sub-systems is also expected. The candidate should be a motivated self-starter with a demonstrated ability to execute challenging projects, as well as able to work independently with little to no supervision. The candidate should be able to work well in teams and effectively participate in fast-paced, multi-disciplinary teams of system design, system integration, and test engineers.
Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, Physics or related field. In lieu of a Ph.D., a Master's degree with 5 years of directly related experience will be considered. Knowledge and experience with design and analysis tools such as MATLAB, Keysight ADS, Ansys HFSS or equivalents is required. Demonstrated oral and written communications skills are necessary.
