Are you looking for an opportunity to contribute to a highly motivated
team focused on delivering qualified electronic components to a
national security mission? The RF Microsystems department (5211) is
seeking a mid-career R&D Microwave and Sensor Engineer to design,
fabrication, test, qualification and delivery of custom designed
microwave components. These components enable military
communication systems, SAR imaging and doppler radar, and tagging
tracking and locating hardware. Our team is looking for a driven RF
engineer capable of fundamental electromagnetic modeling, transistor
level circuit simulation, and distributed element microwave PCB design.
It is also important to understand electronic die characterization, RF test
equipment, working knowledge of solder assembly, PCB development
and fabrication.

Use circuit modeling tools to design analog or RF integrated
circuit components for transceivers including analog, mixed-signal,
and RF components.
- Review/Write specifications for radar component design
- Specify fabrication steps to build custom designed printed circuit
boards to test integrated circuit components
- Troubleshoot analog or RF circuits in a innovative electronics lab
- Characterize custom designed RF components and modules over voltage, temperature, and environmental stresses.
- Contribute in developing new ideas and proposals for research
activities for the department.
- Use electronic equipment to measure slew rate, gain, stability, phase
noise, jitter, s-parameters, power output, P1dB, PSat, noise figure, modu

Master’s in Electrical Engineering or;
Bachelor’s in Electrical Engineering plus four (4) years’ experience
Radio Frequency design experience
Electrical test and measure practices to protect sensitive devices and
equipment to troubleshooting high frequency circuitry
Use of RF test equipment such as spectrum analyzers, vector network
analyzers, pulsed signal generators, oscilloscopes, and precision power
Ability to acquire and maintain a DOE Q clearance

• Knowledge of designing distributed element active microwave circuits
such as detectors, receivers, and power amplifiers.
• Strong written and presentation skills to provide sponsors and

die attaching, wirebonding, and packaging
advanced automated assembly processes for die and very small
SMT components
• Strong electrical test and measure skills at the module and die level
developing complex microsystem solutions including analog,
digital, RF, and other technologies
modeling electromagnetic effects on and off die
• Active DOE Q or DOD TS clearance

Schedule Type: Full-Time
Hours: 40
Clearance Type: L clearance
