—————————— Job Description ——————————

SciTec has been awarded multiple government contracts and is growing our creative Team! SciTec, Inc. is a dynamic small business with the mission to deliver advanced sensor data processing technologies and scientific instrumentation capabilities in support of National Security and Defense. We support customers throughout the Department of Defense and U.S. Government in building innovative new tools to deliver unique world-class data exploitation capabilities.

SciTec has an immediate opportunity for a talented Modelling and Simulation Scientist. SciTec’s data exploitation techniques are developed hand-in-hand with the leading edge of community understanding of the complex physics that govern the remote sensing phenomena of interest. This understanding happens at the interface of several disciplines: numerical techniques, exhaust plume chemistry, radiation transport, shock physics of condensed matter, hypersonic signature modelling etc. SciTec has made significant contributions to the community understanding, typically, through the development of reduced order models that shed light on the most important phenomena driving the signatures from empirical measurements. This model assisted data exploitation approach allows SciTec to demonstrate algorithm concepts in real-time applications rapidly to meet the ever-evolving challenges faced by our customers.


Working with government, community, and SciTec developed models to increase robustness of existing products, and identify new capabilities

Managing compute requirements of simulations, and analyzing data sets working closely with SciTec subject matter experts

Developing modeling and simulation software, and data exploitation tools in languages such as MATLAB, Python, and C++

Providing technical guidance to teams aligned with contract deliverables

Other duties as assigned
