Will support NOAA NESDIS Program Management Office (PMO) in
overseeing RFIM (Radio Frequency interference monitoring) program.
Will be responsible for providing technical engineering support in
radio frequency spectrum management, wireless RF communication
systems, RF interference monitoring, electromagnetic compatibility,
signal processing, and LTE and other wireless technologies in UHF
1670MHz to 1755MHz band. Will perform independent and objective
analysis and provide technical reports for requirements, design,
verification and validation of various RFIM implementations. May
participate in review activities as required by government
10 years of experience in RF technologies. Requires an
understanding of the current SW and HW implementation as well as
theoretical analysis, methods, and tools in RF interference. Must
be experienced in RF spectrum management, RF path optimization, air
interface technologies including RLC, MAX, PHY layer protocols; and
hands-on experience in diagnosing RF interference in operational
environment. Knowledge in commercial wireless 3G/4G technology such
as LTE, WiMax, UMTS, WCDA, GSM, etc. and a good understanding of
wireless technology, such as 3GPP, 3GPP2, standard activities and
FCC spectrum allocations, required. Must have good understanding of
various RF antenna, technologies and radio propagation technology.
Must be proficient using software configuration management tools
ARM, DOOR, JIRA, REMEDY and in modeling RF environments using
MATLAB and Python on a Linux system. Must possess good
communication skills to deliver required written analyses, reports,
Desirable skills include familiarity with NOAA/NASA/DoD RF
system engineering technology; emerging technologies (Internet of
Things (IoT) and 5G); ham radio, the National Telecommunications
and Information Administration (NTIA); and the Institute for
Telecommunications Sciences (ITS) RFIM testing framework. DoC/DoD
clearance is highly desirable.
Must be a US Citizen or a Permanent Resident and be able to pass
a background investigation to obtain a security badge to enter the
applicable government facility.
BS in electrical/electronic engineering, physics, other related
technical discipline, or equivalent. MS preferred.
