Riverside Research is seeking a computational scientist/scientific programmer to support development of a high-impact high-frequency asymptotic (ray-tracing) computational electromagnetics (CEM) tool chain for modeling electrically large objects.
All Riverside Research opportunities require U.S. Citizenship.
The candidate will collaborate with a small team of CEM and high-performance computing (HPC) experts to develop cross-platform EM modeling software for use on workstations and supercomputers by engineers in the defense industry. They will be responsible for extending an existing C++ application with new features and capabilities, validating its results against analytic models, measured and synthetic data, and presenting results to customers.
- BS with 5+, MS with 3+ or PhD with 0+ years of experience in Physics, Electrical Engineering, Applied Mathematics or equivalent
- Familiarity with wave phenomena, such as propagation, reflection, transmission and evanescent waves, associated with radio frequency EM physics, optics, or acoustic physics.
- Proficiency in scientific computing languages such as C/C++, Fortran, Python, MATLAB, or similar
- Ability to work independently and with a team
- Superior interpersonal and communications skills, written and verbal
- Willingness to learn and perform other duties as assigned
- Obtain and maintain a Top Secret/SCI Security Clearance
- Ability to travel (less than 10%)
- Active Secret Clearance
- Knowledge of asymptotic methods such as geometrical optics, physical optics, shooting and bouncing rays (SBR), uniform theory of diffraction (UTD), geometrical theory of diffraction (GTD), or other ray based techniques
- Experience with numerical techniques such as method of moments, finite element method, finite difference time domain, domain decomposition methods, linear algebra, fast solver methods, etc.
- Experience with parallel programming of large high performance computers (MPI and OpenMP)
- Experience applying signal processing and/or image formation techniques.
