Our Liberty Station, San Diego, CA office is seeking talented candidates to develop mathematical models and algorithms, develop and demonstrate prototype software, and participate in operational analysis related to their technical work. Our office employs mathematicians, physicists and computer scientists. We routinely apply stochastic processes, statistical inference, optimization and scheduling, models of random graphs and applied physics to develop the underlying theory and applications for our clients. The successful candidate will interact with customers, both onsite and offsite, gather requirements and data, present briefings, and contribute to the development of Metron tools.
Projects typically involve developing advanced algorithms implemented in a computer prototype system for our research & development customers. We work in small teams, led by Senior Scientists or Analysts, who work closely with new employees. Project teams work together from the initial system concept, through software and algorithm design, to implementation and demonstration.
We believe an employee's specific academic training is not as important as their innate ability and willingness to learn new areas of mathematics and work on difficult problems.
* PhD in Computer Science, Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Physics or Operations Research
* Some programming experience is preferred (C, C++, Java, Matlab, etc.)
* Mathematical, simulation, or physical modeling experience highly desired
* US Citizenship required, position will require background investigation to authorize access to classified information
Position Location: San Diego, CA
