Full Time / Lexington, MA
Robotics and Autonomous Control Systems Engineer - Associate Staff
MIT Lincoln Laboratory
The Control & Autonomous Systems Engineering Group is seeking a control or robotics & autonomous systems engineer to work with a multi-disciplinary team to envision and create complex demonstration prototypes (primarily unmanned) and innovative solutions to challenging national security problems, which are implemented for space-based, airborne, ground, and maritime environments. Technical staff members are involved in the complete project life-cycle of control and autonomous systems, from concept and requirements definition, systems analysis, architecture development, design and implementation to field testing and evaluation.
Research and development topics include one or more of the following: autonomous systems, guidance, navigation, non-linear or under-actuated control systems, estimation and feedback control algorithms such as PID controllers, Extended Kalman Filters, and Unscented Kalman Filters for dynamic pointing and tracking, inertial stabilization, embedded servo control systems, custom electronics development for advanced sensors, and mechanism and actuator control, artificial intelligence, including machine learning, Bayesian probability, modern feedback control and state estimation, computer vision, image processing, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and Markov decision processes.
Hands-on team-based experience, an understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the topics above, and a highly skilled software engineering background are critical. Work may involve using tools such as Matlab and Simulink for algorithm development and simulation, Mentor Graphics for electronics development, and software development targeting both general purpose and real-time operating systems such as VxWorks, Xenomai, and real-time Linux.
Selected candidate will be subject to a pre-employment background investigation and must be able to obtain and maintain a Secret level DoD security clearance.
