The primary purpose of this position is to serve as a Senior Electronics Engineer, AST - Avionic Systems in the Electronic Systems Branch (ESB). ESB is responsible for providing design, development, and application of state-of-the-art electronic systems that span from experimental technology all the way to high-reliability space flight systems. Work will include performing circuit design, analysis, and testing of printed circuit board electronics with a focus in the area of analog hardware, including but not limited to amplifiers, filters, and signal conditioning. As a senior technology leader, work will also require mentoring junior engineers, reviewing designs, and working with projects to define requirements.

As a Senior Electronics Engineer, the incumbent leads and manages the avionics/electronics development on experimental and space flight project(s). The incumbent must provide expert design and development efforts on aerospace projects to produce new electronic systems or equipment that have a wide and far-reaching impact. Projects may include data acquisition systems to study atmospheric conditions using active or passive sensors. Such projects will also likely require analog electronics to perform signal conditioning, including filtering, amplification, and level translation. Low-noise, optimized electronics may be necessary to achieve high performance requirements for ongoing research and future missions. Newly developed systems will result in a far reaching impact in the field of measurement systems for atmospheric science instruments.
Conducts, directs, and mentors the development and design of complex avionics technology, equipment, and systems that impact national or international programs and result in major technological advancement. Works with project managers and chief engineers to ensure that technical requirements are understood and being met. Manages avionics systems and subsystem interfaces with other Centers. Assists in the strategic planning and implementation of flight and ground facility architectures and standards for life cycle integration and verification of avionics systems. Coordinates resolution of inter-discipline subsystem differences and incompatibilities to ensure that consistent avionics designs are obtained. Provides project liaison support for avionics hardware, requirements, and interface definition.
