The Advanced Radar Research Center (ARRC) at the University of Oklahoma (OU) is currently looking to hire a research scientist in radar signal processing to support and further strengthen its rapidly growing sponsored research in DoD- and weather-related radar. This person will support the research mission of the ARRC by providing technical expertise to existing research projects, by supporting the development of new strategic capabilities, and by developing their own funded research program.

Required skills and proficiencies include:
1. PhD in electrical engineering or related field or equivalent military/work experience;

2. Proficiency in radar systems performance analysis, radar signal processing, algorithm development, radar simulation, and/or statistical & digital signal processing;

3. Good communication, teamwork, and organizational skills;

4. Desire to interact and work with students, faculty, and technical & administrative staff;

5. Ability to multitask effectively in support of multiple projects.

Additional preferred skills and proficiencies:
1. Experience with surveillance-related radar modes such as target imaging and recognition, synthetic aperture radar, and ground-moving target indication;

2. Experience with emerging radar architectures and concepts such as digital radar, MIMO radar, passive radar, and arbitrary waveform synthesis.

The ARRC ( ) is an interdisciplinary research center at OU specializing in radar systems for both meteorological and defense-related applications. The ARRC is part of a university strategic initiative in radar engineering that is currently undergoing significant growth. Several new faculty have recently been added (bringing the current total to 15 faculty in the center from both engineering and meteorology), and construction is currently underway on a ~35,000 sq-ft. building dedicated to radar research and development ( ). The new building will serve as a centralized laboratory for ARRC faculty, over 50 graduate students, many post-docs and visiting scientists, as well as the ARRC’s permanent administrative and technical staff. The new building will include a large microwave lab, high-bay garage for mobile radar development, prototype fabrication facilities, machine shop, and anechoic chambers. In order to support this growing initiative, multiple new hires are expected, including this current search for a research scientist in radar signal processing.
