Job Description

The Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) has opportunities for Model-Based Systems Engineer research positions within the Sensor and Electromagnetic Application Laboratory (SEAL) in Smyrna, Georgia. The mission of SEAL’s Model-Based Systems Engineering Group is to perform analysis, architecture development and design and engineering functions for complex systems, which includes sensor performance, signal processing, electronic warning, and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) systems deployed on land, air and sea. The Senior Model-Based Systems Engineering team has responsibilities for:

  • Generation of functional requirements,
  • Requirements traceability,
  • Integrated architecture design,
  • Sensor and architecture modeling,
  • Interface definition across subsystems/components and other external systems,
  • Systems trade study analysis,
  • Algorithm definition and development,
  • Modeling and Simulation (M&S) of sensors and systems, and
  • System performance prediction.

The successful candidate will have real world experience and training directly related to implementing Model-Based Systems Engineering solutions on complex, Department of Defense (DoD) programs. The candidate will be involved in a team environment consisting of GTRI, Government, and Industry partners. This position also requires excellent communication skills in order to convey analysis, design and trade spaces to the customer and users, and to assist in the description of required current and future capabilities.
