Join The MITRE Corporation to work in communications, signals analysis, and positioning, navigation, and timing

Do you enjoy applying mathematics to real world problems? Are you interested in identifying and solving challenging mathematical problems that form the basis for solutions in communications, navigation, and timing?

What we do. MITRE is a not-for-profit company dedicated to solving problems for a safer world. Among our many work programs are large programs in GPS, navigation, timing, and communications. MITRE has a long and distinguished history in these fields including our contributions to the design of new GPS signals, the development of software radio GPS receivers, the development of novel satellite navigation receivers, the development of tools and techniques to support low probability of intercept communications, and algorithms and techniques used to reduce interference for receivers. Some highlights of our work in Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) can be found here. (

What you will do. MITRE’s Communications, SIGINT, and PNT department is looking for talented mathematicians and applied mathematicians who are interested in joining our team and leveraging their strong mathematics background to important problems in electrical engineering. In this position, you will apply your technical expertise towards furthering the public good by developing, applying and evaluating state-of-the-art navigation and communication technologies, such as:

- State of the art signal processing algorithms for navigation and communication systems (radio navigation, wireless communications, vision navigation, etc.)

- Next generation signals for communications, satellite, and radio navigation

- Techniques for detecting, locating, and identifying signals

Join our team. We are interested in candidates with a strong mathematical background interested in real-world applications and developing skills in communications, navigation, and timing. We are looking for applicants with MS or PhD in mathematics, applied mathematics, or related disciplines. Specific background in engineering is a plus, but not required.

Attractive skills include experience with MATLAB, Python, or other modeling tools; data analysis; and experience with applying theory to real world applications. Excellent communication, presentation, and writing skills, as well as the ability to build collaborative and mutually beneficial working relationships with people of different backgrounds, are essential.

Where we are. Our department has openings in both of MITRE’s two principal locations: McLean, Virginia and Bedford, Massachusetts.
