Entry-Level: Modeling & Simulation Engineer or Analyst


Applications Engineer


Huntsville, Alabama, United States


Leidos, Dynetics Group, is seeking a talented Modeling & Simulation Engineer or Analyst for the Sensor Systems Analysis and Engineering (SSA&E) Department.

You will join a diverse team of junior to senior engineers, scientists, and software developers to create unique solutions for complex problems. Our team solves important problems that make a difference, supporting our customers in the current and future defense of our nation—primarily in the areas of sensor integration, testing, characterization, modeling, simulation, data analysis, and algorithm development for electro-optical / infrared (EO/IR), radar, and acoustic systems. Specific applications of this include the following:

· Aircraft survivability (infrared countermeasure program support and testing)

· Image-based navigation

· Image processing, statistical analysis, and machine learning algorithm development

· Gimbal modeling

· Hardware-in-the-loop

· Mechanical design and threat modeling

· Missile signature modeling, prediction, and analysis

· High-performance and GPU-accelerated software development

· Target detection, tracking, and discrimination

Primary Responsibilities:

You’ll work within an established and very skilled team of engineers and scientists, contributing to various projects which often require analyzing, understanding, and modeling complex, real-world phenomena to support design and decision making.

Joining our team offers the opportunity to work with experts in their field and grow your career in an area that is appealing to you. You will quickly become an integral member of our team and be given the opportunity to take responsibility for challenging problems of your own. Because of this, we seek team members that are driven and engaged in their work while simultaneously demonstrating high character, given that you will often be working on sensitive and unique problems which require a high degree of trust from our customers. In addition, this position also allows opportunities to take on greater roles and responsibilities such as task lead, team lead, and technical lead—or opportunities for growth into management roles.

Work for this team, though technically demanding, offers a great life-work balance. While a portion of the work in this position may allow for some flexibility of remote work, it is primarily done in-person with the benefit of higher degrees of interaction and interconnectivity within the team leading to better results and a better overall work experience.

Basic Qualifications

Bachelor’s degree in a technical discipline (computer science, engineering, mathematics, or physics).

You must be a US citizen and be a resident of Huntsville, Alabama, or be willing to relocate to the Huntsville, Alabama area.

The position requires excellent communication and organizational skills, attention to detail, and demonstrated proficiency in the following:

· Physics Fundamentals

· Data Analysis

· Programming (Python or MATLAB or C++)

Other Qualifications

Experience and demonstrated skill in any of the following is also a plus:

· Heat Transfer

· Radiometry

· Optical Physics

· Applied Mathematics

· SolidWorks

· DoD background

Preference may be shown to qualified candidates who currently hold an active Secret or Top-Secret clearance.

Candidate must be a US Citizen and possess (and be able to maintain) a Final Secret Clearance or meet the eligibility to obtain (and maintain) a Secret Clearance.
