Senior Research Engineer

Senior Research Engineer

Drawing from various disciplines, including estimation, optimization, probability, and control theory, the Tracking and Fusion Technologies Directorate advances the state-of-the-art in automated sensor control and data processing. We develop object tracking and information fusion technologies for video and radar data, and control technologies that task sensors to maximize the value of information they collect.

TFT engineers cover the full spectrum of research and development: a program might start with the mathematical formulation of an idea, followed by prototyping in MATLAB, implementation in C++, integration with sensor systems, and finally with field testing of the full system. We encourage staff to get involved in any aspect of our programs that might interest them, from publishing results in academic journals to getting flight certified to test our airborne systems. We value candidates who are self-directed yet are good team players, entrepreneurial, goal- and success-oriented, and whose track record suggests a high likelihood of not only brilliantly executing on the current and new projects that we have, but who can also flourish in our environment and contributed to the development of new programs. We seek candidates who will share in the excitement that we have for our work, provide leadership for various complex problem areas, independently develop creative solution strategies, and work successfully in multi-disciplinary academic/industry teams.

Minimum Education and Experience Bachelor’s Degree and 5 years work experience or equivalent experience Required Skills and Education Master Degree with three years experience, or PhD

Experience developing software, system, and/or algorithm requirements, designs, and code for highly complex software systems within budget and schedule. Experience using state-of-the-art technology, principles, and concepts. Experience with software and system development lifecycle and development processes and procedures. Experience communicating effectively both orally and in writing. Experience interfacing, coordinating and negotiating with company personnel and customers.

Preferred Skills and Education Preferred skills include:

Degrees in Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, Engineering or related field

  • Familiarity with scientific computing in Java, C++, Python, preferably in Linux
  • Understanding of probability, statistics, estimation, optimization, and control theory
  • Conference or Journal publications
  • Experience with system engineering processes

Candidates will be evaluated not only for their ability to powerfully contribute to existing programs, but also their ability, enthusiasm and vision for developing future programs through identifying high-value opportunities, performing effective marketing, composing high quality teams and over time producing a successful track record in proposal outcomes. Previous success in these types of activities is a plus, but is not necessarily required for the available positions (especially for candidates early in their career).
