Our program is interdisciplinary and welcomes students in any STEM major related to the tasks above.


  • Qualifications We Require:
  • You bring the confidence and skills to be eligible for the job by meeting these minimum requirements:
  • Earned bachelor's degree
  • Currently attending and enrolled full time in an accredited science, engineering, or math graduate program
  • Minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0/4.0
  • Ability to work up to 30 hours per week during the academic year, and up to 40 hours per week during the summer
  • U.S. citizenship
  • Qualifications We Desire:
  • Please apply if you have at least two of the following:
  • Proficiency in a programming language such as C++, Python, Matlab, or Julia
  • Experience with Navigation, Guidance, and Control (NGC/GNC) technologies
  • Experience with machine learning, deep learning, reinforcement learning, computer vision/image processing, etc
  • Familiarity with sensor phenomenology such as optical, EO/IR, multispectral, radar, accelerometers, gyroscopes, magnetometers, acoustic sensors, geophones, etc
  • Expertise in digital signal processing, embedded systems, FPGA, VHDL/Lucid, sensor fusion, ROS, Linux, or optimization/operations research.
  • Research experience in a niche topic such as nonlinear robust/optimal control, multi-agent reinforcement learning, GPS-denied navigation, software-defined radio, synthetic aperture radar, human-machine interaction, physics-informed neural network, neuromorphic computing, or such other reserach topic that will advance GNC.
  • We highly desire an ability to obtain and maintain a Department of Energy secret clearance, and an undergraduate GPA of 3.5 or higher.
