The Communications and Intelligent Systems Division at Glenn Research Center is recruiting for new members of the NASA team to provide radiofrequency (RF) expertise in the design, modeling, test, characterization, and analysis of communications systems in support of both space and aeronautical applications. The Division supports the Space Communications and Navigation Program, space exploration and science programs, and the aeronautical communications programs at the NASA Glenn Research Center.
- Duties described below are at the full-performance level. Duties assigned at a lower grade level will be of more limited scope, performed with less independence and limited complexity; duties will be commensurate with the grade of selected employee.
- Conduct analysis, design, modeling, and simulation of communications components (e.g., antennas, RF circuits), subsystems (e.g., frequency converters, RF front ends, signal processing), and full systems/architectures using computer modeling software
- Identify, design, develop, and validate new architecture, components, systems, and sub-systems for integration into aeronautics and space applications. Validation can include analytical, test, and/or measurement approaches
- Develop prototype space and aeronautical system/architecture emulations and demonstrations in a laboratory or relevant environment
- Develop and disseminate new knowledge through research and development in areas of satellite communications and systems, RF and optical communication systems, measurement techniques, link analysis, and digital modulation and coding
- Document methods, results, and recommendations through internal and external reports, position papers, presentations, and publications.
- Report on accomplishments in the form of formal reviews, presentations, and hardware or software deliverables
- Define concepts, develop, and assess requirements for future space exploration (e.g., Earth, Lunar and Mars) and new aeronautical systems within the National Airspace System (e.g. unpiloted autonomous air vehicles)
- Work independently and in teams to solve technical problems. May lead research or development task areas in support of larger projects
- Develop new analytical capability and tools, technology products, subsystems, and systems for space and aeronautical applications
- This position is open to U.S. citizens, nationals or those who owe allegiance to the U.S
- Position subject to pre-employment background investigation
- You must meet qualifications requirements by the closing date of this announcement. Applicants may be considered who are enrolled in a qualifying graduate degree program and are expected to complete their education by December 31, 2021
- Financial Disclosure, Drug Testing, and/or the Risk Designation for this position will differ and be required at the higher grade levels in the career ladder
