JOB DESCRIPTION

The Advanced SATCOM Systems and Operations Group is involved in a synergistic combination of research, proof-of-concept test beds, and system engineering and application efforts focused on the goals of enhancing the capacity, the robustness to interference, and the flexibility of future generations of communications satellites, as well as line-of-sight radio communications systems and free-space optical communications. Current research is concentrating on the design and performance of advanced waveforms (including higher-order signaling constellations and iterative demodulation/decoding), the construction of flexible, adaptive wideband frequency plans, robust acquisition and tracking techniques, dynamic resource-allocation protocols, and advanced networking strategies. Promising research results are verified in hardware and software proof-of-concept implementations that provide quantitative performance data as well as complexity information. The group's system engineering activities synthesize innovative architectures and apply new concepts and technologies to specific communications programs in the national interest.

The Communications Systems Engineer will actively participate in the design, analysis, and implementation of novel waveforms, digital signal processing algorithms, dynamic resource allocation schemes, and/or advanced networking protocols. The individual will typically work in multi-disciplinary teams in which team members possess expertise in communications theory, networking, information assurance, systems engineering, RF, digital HW, and SW. The individual will have opportunities to work with the government, academia, and industry as well as make contributions towards DoD policy, requirements, acquisition, systems engineering, and operations.

Requirements:
Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering or related field with a strong background in wireless communications and signal processing. In lieu of a Ph.D., an M.S. with 5+ years of directly relevant experience is acceptable. Desired experience and/or coursework includes communication theory, error-control coding, digital signal processing, radio frequency (RF) propagation modeling, optical communications, medium access control protocols, and networking. Familiarity with MATLAB or equivalent analysis/modeling and simulation tools is required.

Overview

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. Due to the unique nature
