Job Description

Georgia Tech Research Institutes's (GTRI) Trusted Microelectronics Program Office (TMPO) seeks a highly qualified researcher with interest in leading a branch focused on the pursuit of novel techniques for developing with, and for, reconfigurable devices for the purposes of supporting microelectronics security research.

TMPO researches microelectronic applications, tools, architectures, and materials to evaluate the security, trust, and reliability of microelectronic devices and the critical systems which rely upon them. TMPO develops tools and techniques in the areas of assurance, anti-tamper, and reliability for FPGAs, ASICs, SoCs, microcontrollers, and other devices, to include novel hardware-oriented security and trust protections.

The TMPO Hardware Research and Development Branch Head will work with branch engineers and program personnel as part of a cohesive team to research hardware architectures and devices, develop solutions for hardware-oriented security and trust, and performing advanced research and experimentation into intersection of reconfigurable technologies, custom architectures, software/CAD design frameworks, and novel high performance acceleration architectures.

In addition to leading research teams, Branch Heads will also be responsible for writing and winning proposals for sustained branch growth, and will be responsible for ensuring that the branch is continuing to pursue new and novel research efforts through judicious use of internal R&D funding.

Other responsibilities include: performing branch staffing and employee appraisals; ensuring branch is equipped with the necessary tools, equipment, and software required to perform tasks in an efficient and effective manner; responsible for maintaining adequate engineering expertise in order to successfully complete projects and win new efforts. These include posting job openings, resume review, candidate interviews and hiring recommendations; maintaining the technical health of branch employees through professional development, training, and promoting publication of novel research in appropriate venues.
