- Serve as primary technical contact on tasks and projects applying advanced technical knowledge and methodologies to guide successful completion of a project and meet organizational goals.
- Mentor junior staff to develop their capabilities in the signal and image sciences.
- Master’s degree in electrical engineering, statistics, mathematics or a related field, or the equivalent combination of education and related experience.
- Comprehensive knowledge and experience in one or more topics within the signal and image sciences.
- Experience coding algorithms in C, C++, Matlab, Python, or similar language used in the signal and image sciences.
- Proficient verbal and written communication skills enabling effective technical presentations and lucid technical reports.
- Collaboration skills that promote effective teaming environments.
- Ability to travel to customer locations and participate in field deployments and exercises.
In Addition at the SES.3 Level
- Advanced knowledge and significant experience of one or more specialization topics within the signal and image sciences.
- Experience effectively managing concurrent technical tasks with contending priorities.
- Advanced verbal and written communication skills necessary to present and explain technical information to sponsors and provide advice to management.
- PhD in electrical engineering, statistics, mathematics, or a closely related field.
- Experience in leading teams in the research, development, and implementation of signal and image processing algorithms.
- Experience in crafting successful research and development proposals in the signal and image sciences.
Pre-Employment Drug Test: External applicant(s) selected for this position will be required to pass a post-offer, pre-employment drug test. This includes testing for use of marijuana as Federal Law applies to us as a Federal Contractor.
Security Clearance: This position requires a Department of Energy (DOE) Q-level clearance.
If you are selected, we will initiate a Federal background investigation to determine if you meet eligibility requirements for access to classified information or matter. In addition, all L or Q cleared employees are subject to random drug testing. Q-level clearance requires U.S. citizenship. If you hold multiple citizenships (U.S. and another country), you may be required to renounce your non-U.S. citizenship before a DOE L or Q clearance will be processed/granted.
Note: This listing has two openings; these are Career Indefinite positions. Lab employees and external candidates may be considered for these positions.
