The Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) in Atlanta, GA is looking for mid to senior-level professionals with radar and radar systems experience and exposure to a wide-range of radar types (airborne intercept, airborne ISR, ground-based air surveillance, surface-to-air missile, etc.). The candidate is expected to have a specialty in signal processing, data processing, or tracking with an understanding of the key performance drivers and characteristics of the entire radar.  Knowledge of electronic protection and electronic warfare is also required.  The candidate needs to be comfortable with uncertainty.
