BASIC REQUIREMENTS: ELECTRONICS ENGINEER
Successfully completed a professional engineering degree: The curriculum must be in a school of engineering with at least one curriculum accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) as a professional engineering curriculum or include differential and integral calculus and courses (more advanced than first-year physics and chemistry) in five of the following seven areas of engineering science or physics: (a) statics, dynamics; (b) strength of materials (stress-strain relationships); (c) fluid mechanics, hydraulics; (d) thermodynamics; (e) electrical fields and circuits; (f) nature and properties of materials (relating particle and aggregate structure to properties); and (g) any other comparable area of fundamental engineering science or physics, such as optics, heat transfer, soil mechanics, or electronics. Such education must demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to do the work. NOTE: YOU MUST SUBMIT COPIES OF YOUR OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS.
Combination of education and experience that is college-level education, training, and/or technical experience that furnished (1) a thorough knowledge of the physical and mathematical sciences underlying professional engineering; and (2) a good understanding, both theoretical and practical, of the engineering sciences and techniques and their applications to one of the branches of engineering. The adequacy of such background must be demonstrated by one of the following: (1) Current registration as a professional engineer by any State, the District of Columbia, Guam, or Puerto Rico, (2) evidence of having successfully passed the Engineer-in-Training (EIT) examination, or the written test required for the professional registration, which is administered by the Boards of Engineering Examiners in various States, the District of Columbia, Guam, and Puerto Rico, (3) successful completion of at least 60 semester hours of courses in the physical, mathematical, and engineering sciences and in engineering that included courses specified in the basic requirements or (4) successful completion of a curriculum leading to a bachelors degree in engineering technology or in an appropriate professional field, e.g., physics, chemistry, architecture, computer science, mathematics, hydrology, or geology, may be accepted in lieu of a degree in engineering, provided the applicant has had at least 1 year of professional engineering experience acquired under professional engineering supervision and guidance. NOE: YOU MUST SUBMIT COPIES OF YOUR OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS.
NOTE: IN ADDITION TO MEETING THE BASIC REQUIREMENTS ABOVE APPLICANT MUST ALSO MEET THE QUALIFICATION REQUIREMENTS LISTED BELOW.
SPECIALIZED EXPERIENCE FOR ELECTRONICS ENGINEER GG-0855-13
Applicant must have at least one (1) year of specialized experience which is equivalent to a GG-12 or qualifying pay band or other pay system that equipped the applicant with the particular knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs) to successfully perform the duties of the position, and that is typically in or related to the position to be filled. Specialized experience would be demonstrated by knowledge of a wide range of concepts, principles, and practices in a professional scientific occupation. Knowledge of engineering, physical sciences, mathematics, statistical analysis, modeling and simulation, and/or other scientific concepts, principles, standards, methods, techniques, practices, and procedures; and ability to modify standard practices and techniques to solve complex interrelated problems.

KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS AND ABILITIES (KSAs): Your qualifications will be evaluated on the basis of your level of knowledge, skills, abilities and/or competencies in the following areas:
1. Advanced knowledge of the principles, concepts and methodology of foreign directed energy weapon counterspace practices gained through job experience (or equivalent educational experience and training) to permit independent determination of the characteristics of foreign directed energy weapon threats targeted against US space operations and the production of intelligence assessments.
2. Knowledge of space systems concepts and capabilities of foreign counterspace systems and subsystems.
3. Skill in applying knowledge of foreign counterspace capabilities to impact US satellites and supporting infrastructure.
4. Ability to understand the process to identify intelligence gaps and plan multi-source information gathering strategies to substantiate new, accurate, and tailored counterspace intelligence assessments of electronic systems and subsystems.
5. Skill in effective writing and oral communication skills to prepare finished intelligence reports and present briefings.
PART-TIME OR UNPAID EXPERIENCE: Credit will be given for appropriate unpaid and or part-time work. You must clearly identify the duties and responsibilities in each position held and the total number of hours per week.
ARE YOU USING YOUR EDUCATION TO QUALIFY? You MUST provide transcripts to support your educational claims. Education must be accredited by an accrediting institution recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
FOREIGN EDUCATION: Education completed in foreign colleges or universities may be used to meet the requirements. You must show proof the education credentials have been deemed to be at least equivalent to that gained in conventional U.S. education program. It is your responsibility to provide such evidence when applying.
ADDITIONAL CONDITIONS OF EMPLOYMENT:
· Position is designated critical-sensitive and incumbent must be able to obtain and retain a TOP SECRET (TS) security clearance with access to Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI). A non-disclosure agreement must be signed.
· Drug Testing: This position has been designated by the Air Force as a Testing Designated Position (TDP) under the Air Force Civilian Testing Program.
