Description

With the accelerated expansion of wireless devices, the open radio frequency spectrum is declining rapidly and we are ever more vulnerable to unintended interference and potential exploitation. Our wireless research team has patented an innovative solution to this problem and this is your opportunity to work on ground breaking research with a world-class team. We need someone with the technical knowledge, the interpersonal skills and teamwork abilities to help us change the way the world looks at wireless.

Our client is seeking an expert in wireless physical–layer development. The responsibilities include development, demonstration and deployment of assured, robust, and secure wireless communications for critical national needs. Projects may extend into collaborative research with Wireless National User Facility (WNUF), smart grid communications, industrial control systems communications, and cyber security for programs supporting the US Government.
