DESIRED BACKGROUND: Upper level undergraduate or graduate student in Electrical Engineering with hands-on experience in analog and RF electronics


ESSENTIAL JOB FUNCTIONS: Support and assist senior staff scientists and engineers for design, simulation, fabrication, and integration of advanced RF, microwave and millimeter-wave circuits and systems.

KNOWLEDGE DESIRED: Must have basic understanding of RF and microwave integrated circuits concepts, such as scattering parameters, input/output impedance matching, noise and power. Familiarity with CAD layout for both PCB and IC (e.g., Cadence, ADS, or MWO) are desirable. Knowledge of large signal measurements and load pull is a plus.


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS (e.g. driver’s license special tools or restrictions): U.S. citizenship required.

This position must meet Export Control compliance requirements, therefore a "U.S. Person" as defined by 22 C.F.R. § 120.15 is required. "U.S. Person" includes U.S. Citizen, lawful permanent resident, refugee, or asylee.
