Position Title: Electronics Engineer
Institution Name: Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory

This is the position of Digital Signal Processing Engineer, Central Engineering Department (CE), Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory (SAO). The incumbent will be working on the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT); a pioneering Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) array with angular resolution of the order of ten micro-arc seconds. The EHT investigates the characteristics of emission from Supermassive Black Holes on event-horizon scales, with the ultimate goal of making an image of emission from the near neighborhood of the black hole, thereby testing Einstein’s theory of general relativity in the strong field limit. The EHT is seeking a Senior Electrical Engineer with Digital Signal Processing specialization to work with senior instrumental scientists. The objective is to implement next generation analog-to digital conversion technologies matched to ultra-high performance computing platforms based on Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) and Graphics Processor Unit (GPU) technologies. This position is with the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory.
