Where You Will Work:
Located in Boulder, Colorado, the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) is one of the world's premier scientific institutions, with an internationally recognized staff and research program dedicated to advancing knowledge, providing community-based resources, and building human capacity in the atmospheric and related sciences. NCAR is sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and managed by the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR).
Formed in 2005, the is one of the seven laboratories of NCAR, the National Science Foundation's Federally Funded Research and Development Center. EOL's mission is to provide leadership in observing facilities, field project support as well as research and data services needed to advance the scientific understanding of the Earth system.
In its ongoing effort to advance observing technology, the EOL is developing the Airborne Phased Array Radar (APAR). The radar incorporates state-of-the-art technologies such as signal processing using field programmable gate arrays, radar pulse compression techniques and embedded systems. The development is in the enhanced prototype phase, which will last approximately 2 years. This phase will extend the currently existing pieces into an end-to-end system that will allow an active electronically scanned array to be tested as an observational instrument. Work on this prototype will help to guide future APAR design and mitigate development risks in following phases. EOL seeks a mid-level Software Engineer with a passion for learning and for science to join the APAR team.
What You Will Do:
This person will design and implement software tools and components needed for APAR's development, in close collaboration with other engineers and scientists. Initially, this work will involve building a raw data simulation framework to be used in testing of downstream processing software, as well as assisting in continued development of the acquisition, processing, and/or display software. Later projects will be determined as needed to meet APAR's goals. This is a two-year term position, with possibility of extension depending on continued funding.
