About the Organization:
The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) is one of the most diverse engineering and scientific research organizations in the world. Provides high quality, responsive engineering and environmental research and development support to the Army and Nation.
As part of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers team, ERDC develops innovative science and technology solutions to support warfighting, infrastructure, environmental, water resources, and disaster operations. For more information on our organization, please visit our website at www.erdc.usace.army.mil.
The crown jewel of the Upper Connecticut River Valley, Hanover has been called by Money Magazine the number one town in the East among "smaller places that offered the best combination of economic opportunity, good schools, safe streets, things to do and a real sense of community." For additional information about the Hanover area, please visit the Hanover Chamber of Commerce website at http://hanoverchamber.org/
The ERDC-Hanover, NH site is currently undergoing a remedial investigation of trichloroethylene (formerly used as a refrigerant) that was released into the environment. Interim actions are underway to monitor and mitigate trichloroethylene vapors of indoor air to ensure a safe work environment.

Who May Apply:
- All U.S. Citizens and Nationals with allegiance to the United States
- Eligible due to Interagency Career Transition Program (ICTAP)
In this interdisciplinary research position, you will serve as a researcher in the areas of radio wave propagation, radio frequency physics and coupled antennae and local terrain behavior (e.g., dielectric properties, conductivity, improvised ground planes, etc.). You will develop geospatially aware radio frequency propagation models and integrate them with military programs of interest in the modeling of signal propagation and sensing phenomenology (e.g., Camouflage, Concealment and Deception). You will apply professional programming knowledge and experience to complex software development that allows the military to understand radio frequency propagation in battlespace, perform background research on related topics, prepare written summaries and reports, prepare and orate visual presentations, and conduct a broad range of material and signals analyses using relevant laboratory equipment, numerical models and programming languages. You will setup, conduct and oversee programming concerning a variety of topics that involve signature physics (including radio frequencies). You will implement signature physics models and provide model response feedback regarding model efficacy, critical environmental parameters to improve model performance, etc. You will maintain customer relationships, develop proposals for work new and additional work, and publish findings in reports, peer review publications, and scientific presentations.
Occasional travel - Occasional business travel required, up to 25%
