Introduction: The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL), a national leader in scientific research and development, located midway between Baltimore and Washington, DC is seeking a Space Instrumentation Electronics Lead Engineer.
Group Summary: The Space Science Electronics group at APL builds electronics systems for space flight instrumentation that produces data for scientific research. We’re a group of about 40 engineers with expertise that span across all aspects of instrument electronics production including systems engineering, analog, digital, and power supply electronics design, FPGA design, and software design. We work very closely with other groups of engineers and scientists who contribute all other expertise required for the instrument production.
Some examples of our work includes: the PEPSSI and LORRI instruments on the New Horizons Spacecraft, most of the instrument suite on the MESSENGER Spacecraft, the CRISM instrument on the MRO Spacecraft, and dozens more. We are currently working on instruments for the JUICE, Europa, Psyche, and Lucy Missions. We are seeking talented individuals to contribute to the design and production of space flight instrumentation.
Summary: Lead teams of engineers to perform specification, design, analysis, fabrication and qualification of custom electronics systems for space flight instrumentation in support of scientific research.
