This position works under the direction of the senior communications systems engineer supporting the design and implementation of digital communications algorithms for a novel in-body communications system. The system is optimized for low data bandwidth and low power consumption, at a low cost. There is broad freedom to define the architecture. The work involves design verification, building models, developing tools to support design verification and development, and performing data analysis.
Testing and analysis of advanced signal processing algorithms for wireless in-body communications system.
Models for the wireless channel and the communication system.
Tools which support design verification and development.
Perform lab testing and system debug.
Create documentation/application notes for end customers.
The ideal candidate will have demonstrated ability to creatively solve problems and 0 to 3 years experience.
Minimum MS in engineering, computer science, mathematics or physical science with a concentration in communications.
Expertise in communications, signal processing, and modeling techniques.
Extensive experience in mathematical modeling and data analysis using Matlab or equivalent.
Have in-depth knowledge in digital communications and advanced signal processing algorithms such as synchronization, equalization, channel estimation, FEC, etc.
Experience implementing algorithms using C/C++ for low-resource systems.
Skill optimizing fixed-point mathematics.
Previous experience developing signal processing algorithms for biomedical applications is desirable.
Excellent communications and presentation skills
Occasional lifting and physical labor and complete plant/office mobility.
