Lead Engineer – Signal Analytics, GE Global Research

Location: Niskayuna, New York

Description: Today, our researchers are creating the next generation – and beyond – of technology for one of the world’s most successful and admired companies.

The Software Sciences and Analytics team is bringing together our knowledge of data, analytics, and computing to grow GE's businesses in exciting new ways. We develop advanced computing and decision-making tools to analyze, interpret and utilize data, creating software systems, solutions and architectures that will change the way our customers create, deliver and manage their businesses.

The Sensor and Signal Analytics Laboratory at GE Global Research, within the SSA organization, consists of statistical signal processing and data fusion experts whose work spans a broad range of applications from improving vital sign monitoring of hospital patients to maximizing the energy output of wind farms. The lab sees much need for signal analytics skills in the future and we are actively seeking candidates to expand the team.

Applicants are expected to have an outstanding technical background and excel in the execution of projects in involving statistical signal processing (detection, estimation, tracking, filtering, modeling, and system identification) and data fusion. Experience with diagnostics and prognostics and/or acoustics is also desirable.

Lab members understand GE’s varying businesses and how we use technology to add value to our products & services. We enjoy continuous interaction with GE Global Research staff from other science and engineering disciplines including physics, biology, statistics, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, and applied optics. You will work with team members to create technology research roadmaps, propose research efforts, collaborate with internal and external organizations, and conduct innovative R&D to bring world-class analytics to GE products & services.

As a Lead Engineer – Signal Analytics, you will:

  • Conceptualize problems, apply appropriate theory, explore approaches, simulate, and implement solutions.
  • Address and solve practical as well as research problems.
  • Develop prototype systems and transfer to GE businesses.
  • Interact and collaborate with multidisciplinary teams, internal and external to GE.
  • Demonstrate breadth as well as depth in problem solving.
  • Determine near-term and future business needs in signal analytics for GE Aviation, GE Energy, GE Healthcare, GE Transportation, GE Wind, and other GE businesses.
  • Prepare well-written proposals and deliver strong oral presentations of proposed ideas.
  • Establish a recognized track record of patents and publications.

We also have an opening for an Electrical Engineer - Sensor and Signal Analytics.  Please visitwww.GECareers.com and search for job number 1590708.
