Senior Computational Research Scientist

Job Details Description Applied Research Associates, Inc. is seeking a talented computational engineer, physicist or mathematician to provide computational support for modeling and simulation of advanced and complex RF systems. A background in fast numerical methods, computational electromagnetics, or signal processing is required. The successful candidate will perform R&D of advanced numerical algorithms in computational electromagnetics, computational acoustics, and computational fluid dynamics. The candidate will also participate V&V activities for CREATE-RF SENTRi and provide support in code development and improvement (e.g., new EM features, GUI, and post processing capabilities) A working proficiency with Python, FORTRAN, and C/C++ in a Linux/Unix environment is required to work with numerical software. Experience with source code version control tools such as Git and continuous software integration such as Jenkins is preferred. The candidate will require experience running large-scale parallel first principles EM codes; this experience should be broad-based and include finite element and boundary integral equations, e.g., CREATE-RF SENTRi.  What you'll do as a Senior Computational Research Scientist: Lead or participate in CEM projects and V&V activities focused in CREATE-RF SENTRi Perform trade study analysis for advanced RF platforms.  Work with a unique group of highly skilled and experienced mathematicians, physicists, RF/antennas engineers, and computer scientists to solve complex, large-scale computational problems in electromagnetics and related fields.  Requirements for a Senior Computational Research Scientist: BS in EE or Computational Physics and seven to nine years' experience MS in EE or Computational Physics and five to seven years' experience Experience in computational electromagnetics Understand the physics of the problem to be solved Be able to summarize or describe progress or tasks in technical reports and develop technical presentations. The ability to work and collaborate with other engineers and scientists. Requires little supervision in developing a milestone schedule or work plan to achieve the final task objectives in a timely manner. Participate in developing and writing proposals. Candidates selected may be subject to a government securityinvestigation and must meet eligibility for access to classified information.  Preferences for a Senior Computational Research Scientist: BS of Computer Engineering/Science Working knowledge of FORTRAN, C/C++, Python, and Linux  Company & Division Information The work environment and atmosphere in BRD's Computational Physical Sciences (CPS) Group has been compared to a fast-paced graduate school. Our culture is very attractive to both young superstars right out of school and seasoned veterans at the top of their field.  While the work can be intense, it's fast-paced in a good, competitive way, and our relaxed office environment keeps things comfortable. If you enjoy a close team environment, problem-solving with the industry's brightest colleagues at your side, and that satisfying feeling of meeting and exceeding client expectations, you'll be happy in our group.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
