We live in a time in which you have a choice – a choice where to work, where to apply your talents and ideas, where to grow and look for self-fulfillment. We, the members of the Secure, Resilient Systems and Technology Group, have made our choice. We are here. We are computer scientists, software, hardware and electrical engineers, cryptographers, system analysts and security architects who share a common passion for helping solve some of the hardest technical problems relevant to National security. We pursue innovative, high-impact, practical research in small, focused teams. We succeed by participating in all R&D phases, including problem analysis and innovative solution design, system architecture, rapid prototyping and field-testing, and ultimately transfer of our technology to DoD and Intelligence Community users, sponsors, and Industry. Being part of MIT, we also collaborate closely with academia and publish our research in top-tier venues. We are having fun.

If you would like to work on things that truly matter, and learn a lot from doing that, apply here to learn more. You may discover this is exactly the place you are looking for.

Embedded systems engineer.

If selected, you will play a key role in creating and transitioning advanced HW/embedded systems technology for ensuring security and resilience of mission-critical systems. Our R&D activities in this area focus on generic, foundational technologies (such as cryptography, side-channel resistance, HW roots of trust, tamper-resistance, and advanced processors) and on the applications of such technology to the security and resiliency architectures of next-generation mission-critical systems: from drones and satellites, to handheld devices and miniature sensors, to high-performance secure cloud computing, and many others. Your initial project assignment will take into account the preferences and interests you express during the interview.

Requirements: Master’s degree in Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or related fields; in lieu of MS, a Bachelor’s with 3 or more years of relevant experience will be considered. Deep knowledge and extensive experience in analysis, modeling, design, development, testing, and verification of embedded systems (C, VHDL, etc.). The passion to convert vision into reality, excellent work ethic, and effective communication skills are essential.

Desired knowledge and skills include one or more of the following: System engineering. Computer and software security. Applied cryptography, side-channel-resistance techniques, and tamper detection technologies. Embedded processor design cycle. FPGAs and/or ASIC design and verification. Communication protocols at chip, board, and system levels. Co-design and integration of software and hardware, IP cores, sensors, system-on-chip design and verification. Multi-core/multi-thread computing.

MIT Lincoln Laboratory is an Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment and will not be discriminated against on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, veteran status, disability status, or genetic information; U.S. citizenship is required.


Since 1951, when MIT Lincoln Laboratory was established to build the nation's first air defense system, the Laboratory has been applying advanced technology to solve problems critical to national security. Decade after decade, our people have envisioned incredible technology - and projects that start out as vital to national security often become just as vital to the everyday technology of the future. More than 700 patents have been granted for technologies developed by the Laboratory’s staff. And in the past two years, Lincoln Laboratory has been awarded eight R&D 100 Awards that recognize the year’s 100 most technologically significant innovations.

If you’d like to contribute to U.S. National security in an environment of incredible innovation, consider bringing your career to MIT Lincoln Laboratory.

As an Equal Opportunity Employer, we are committed to realizing our vision of diversity and inclusion in every aspect of our enterprise.
