Embedded Machine Learning Research Engineer II

Job Description:

Embedded Machine Learning Research Engineer

Boulder, CO

SRI International's Advanced Technology and Systems Division (ATSD) performs research across a wide range of disciplines. SRI specializes in transitioning technology from basic R&D to fieldable prototypes for both US government and commercial customers.

Our SRI office in Boulder, CO has an immediate opening for a Research Engineer within ATSD in the Applied Physics Laboratory. The Applied Physics Lab conducts R&D in radar, communications, Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT), Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR), quantum sensing, and machine learning. The Research Engineer will utilize real time embedded signal processing and machine learning on current radar projects and conduct business development to capture new programs in the broader field of RF systems, including communications and electronic warfare. Will start as an individual contributor on current R&D programs, and will be supported to grow into a Principal Investigator role in the future if interested.

New graduates who do not have all the required experience but feel they can grow into this role are encouraged to apply.
