Job Title:RD Electrical Engineer - Data Systems Engineering (Entry/Mid-Career)

:

The Weapons Design and Assurance Center (2600) is a multi-discipline, product-focused organization that provides engineering design, components, subsystems, integration, testing, and field support for nuclear weapons and other high-consequence national security applications. Examples of these applications include the development of satellite and other space-flight and airborne payloads, testing for high consequence military programs, nuclear weapon safety mechanisms, high reliability electronic products, telemetry and software systems, and data science and analytics. The Center is divided into four main competencies: Advanced Mechanical Design, Firing & Embedded Systems, Hi-Reliability Electronic Products, and Data Systems Engineering.

The Data Systems Engineering Group is looking for qualified Research and Development Electrical Engineering candidates interested in collaborating within a high performing team on next generation technologies to provide solutions to national security applications. The group engineers and delivers technology solutions across the entire spectrum of mission data (producers, consumers, transport, and analysis). Applicants will also have opportunities to propose and participate in internal research and development efforts. Successful candidates will have opportunities to work in areas such as; electrical modeling and analysis, printed circuit board/component level circuit design, electrical sub-system integration and test, failure analysis and diagnosis, and system field test opportunities within the Nuclear Weapon, Satellite, Radar, and Missile Defense program areas.

Required:



? Advanced degree (Masters or PhD) in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, or science/engineering/mathematics discipline with an undergraduate degree in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics.

? Able to obtain and maintain a DOE Q-Level security clearance.

? Evidence of good academic achievement, typically represented by GPA at all degree levels greater than a 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.

Desired:

? Demonstrated interpersonal skills and ability to work in a team setting for a common purpose.

? Oral and written communication skills, typically evidenced and demonstrated through technical publications and presentations. Examples can include academic work products, peer-reviewed conferences and publications, internal and external product and/or system whitepapers and technical briefings, test plans and procedures, etc.

? Demonstrated ability to execute and deliver technical work products with application of appropriate rigor and pedigree documentation (design/code reviews, technical oversight/approvals, project team concurrence, artifact generation, etc).

? Evidence of high academic achievement, typically represented by an undergraduate GPA greater than 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and graduate GPA greater than 3.7 on a 4.0 scale.

? Active DOE Q-Level security clearance.

? Ability to obtain and maintain an SCI security clearance, which may require a counterintelligence polygraph.

? Active SCI security clearance.

? Demonstrated ability to bound/estimate and deliver systems and/or components within negotiated cost, schedule, and performance.

? Domain knowledge or system experience in any or all of the following areas: nuclear weapons, satellites and payloads, and/or aerospace and flight programs.

? Experience in board-level and/or component level circuit design, RF and Optical communication system design, image processing and data analysis

? Expertise in designing digital and/or analog circuitry including sensors in a variety of technologies (FPGA, Mixed Signal, ASIC) in a variety of design environments (Model-Based Design, VHDL, Verilog, schematic, physical layout/semiconductors).

? Experience in developing telemetry and trusted systems including data recorders and fire sets.

? Experience with modeling, design, and analysis tools. Examples include Simulink, Matlab, PSpice, OrCad, Mentor Graphics, Altium, Labview, and others.

? Ability to test and debug hardware and software systems with the archival of test/debug evidence.

? Understanding of systems engineering and design quality processes. Examples include AS9100, ANSI/EIA-632, and other industry standards.

? Ability to work across a wide variety of engineering and science disciplines to integrate lower level designs and delivered subsystems into a complete system across hardware, software, mechanical, aerospace, and other domains or disciplines.

? Familiarity with hardware and/or software requirements generation for verification, validation and qualification.

? Ability to develop systems in compliance with industry standards and requirements such as ISO9000, IPC, and others.

? Ability to work with commercial or contracted suppliers to acquire hardware, software, or custom components with appropriate procurement rigor.
