Image/Sensor Analytics Scientist/Engineer

PSI - Boston, MA

Physical Sciences Inc., located just north of Boston in Andover, is looking for an individual with strong technical skills in the area of multimodal image processing and sensor data fusion (e.g., EO, IR, SAR, coded aperture) for the development of radiological and nuclear material sensing systems. The candidate will work closely with PSI’s Radiation Detection Area within its Aerospace Systems enterprise. This business unit develops hardware and algorithm-based detection systems for radiological and special nuclear materials.

The candidate will work with a strong group of existing Principal Investigators and hardware engineers to advance and grow an existing base of programs funded by DNDO, DARPA, and the national laboratories, as well as major detection system providers. Those efforts will implement a major advance in signal processing that enables improved detection capability across a range of fixed, mobile, and airborne platforms.

The applicant should have experience in one or more of the following areas: Target signature generation, modeling and simulation, object recognition and classification, EO, IR, and nuclear signature phenomenology, registration of outputs from multiple modalities in addition to a familiarity with optically-based remote sensing methods including LIDAR, image processing and sensor fusion.

The most favorable candidates will have already exhibited a record of accomplishment in the development of detection systems with an emphasis on implementation in hardware and successful field tests. While technical ability is most highly valued, the ability to interact with hardware engineers, as well as customers and potential customers, and good writing skills are highly valued.

An MS or PhD degree in Imaging Science, Physics, Applied Mathematics, or Electrical Engineering is required. Five years of post-degree experience in the field is desirable.

US Citizenship with the ability to obtain a security clearance is required.
