Image Processing Analyst, MIT Lincoln Laboratory

The MIT Lincoln Laboratory Embedded and High Performance Computing Group delivers real-time embedded processing capabilities for a broad spectrum of military applications.

To this end, the group applies hardware architecture design, embedded software engineering, and signal processing analysis to a wide spectrum of military sensors and weapons systems, including space-borne and airborne radars, submarine and ship-borne systems, missiles, and torpedoes. The group's charter provides for development of expertise in both high-performance system-level prototyping and the enabling hardware and software technology. In pursuing these objectives, the group produces some of the highest-performance digital signal processor hardware technology in the world. At the same time, it is a leader in revolutionary software engineering initiatives that exploit high-level open system architecture and middleware approaches to achieve full cross-platform portability, improved system performance, and enhanced programmer productivity. Applying this multidisciplinary approach, the group is able to address ever more challenging requirements, matching signal processing applications to enabling technologies that range from VLSI application-specific integrated circuits and field-programmable gate arrays to large-scale parallel signal processors.

Real-time Software Engineer
Will develop real-time data acquisition, image processing, and recorder software that adheres to open architecture standards. The software components will be integrated into an extensible open architecture system. Development will include the use of middleware libraries such as VSIPL/VSIPL++.

Must be able to work on a broad range on problems. Experience mapping signal and image processing algorithms to high performance hardware and programmable processor architectures is beneficial. Experience developing processors through the complete life-cycle from requirements analysis, design, implementation, integration and support is highly desired.


MS in Computer Science or related field. In lieu of an MS, will consider BS with 3 - 5 years experience. Real-time C++ development in a UNIX-based environment; fluency of Matlab development in UNIX-based environment; experience with linear algebra. Experience programming multi-processor / multi-core systems is also a plus.

MIT Lincoln Laboratory offers exceptional benefits including: tuition assistance, in-house training and unique advanced degree programs; access to MIT campus facilities, services, and events; and immediate vesting in a contributory retirement plan, in addition to a defined benefit pension plan.
