Job Description Qualifications:

We are Boeing Research & Technology (BR&T): Boeing's global research and development team creating and implementing innovative technologies that make the impossible possible and enabling the future of aerospace. We are engineers and technicians, skilled scientists and bold innovators; Join us and put your passion, determination, and skill to work building the future! #TheFutureIsBuiltHere #ChangeTheWorld

Within BR&T, Boeing's Solid State Electronics Development organization (SSED) performs microelectronics technology development and design for aerospace systems.

We develop Systems on Chip (SoCs) for radar, navigation, electronic warfare, communications, processing, and other electronic systems. This entails design, simulation and test of microwave (MMIC) and RF (RFIC) integrated circuits (ICs), high-performance analog and mixed-signal ICs, complex high performance digital ICs, high performance 3D microelectronics packaging and systems on chip (SOC) and systems in package (SIP) technologies. These systems are used on Boeing airborne, terrestrial, and satellite platforms. Designs are implemented with state of the art semiconductor process technologies including CMOS, GaAs, GaN, and SiGe. SSED uses external wafer fabrication but performs design (architecture, RTL, synthesis, circuits, physical design, verification, packaging and test) in house. SSED has numerous microelectronics projects, funded both by internal Boeing customers and external Government Science and Technology (S&T) customers. SSED's large staff of microelectronics engineers conduct research and design microelectronics hardware in support of these projects.

We are seeking experienced Principal Investigators (PIs) to lead the shaping, capture, and execution of SSED's microelectronics research & development (R&D) programs. The successful candidate will accomplish this by leveraging deep knowledge of and a network of connections in: 1) the military/aerospace microelectronics development community; 2) the US government microelectronics R&D community; 3) SSED's customer & partner organizations within Boeing; and 4) the commercial microelectronics industry.

This position allows telecommuting. The selected candidate will be required to perform some work onsite at one of the listed location options.

Position Responsibilities:

  • Participate in development of SSED strategies and roadmaps - technical and business (e.g. new technology areas, partnerships, make/buy trades)
  • Meet regularly with customers (external & internal, current & prospective) and partners to shape SSED business opportunities by: 1) understanding our customers' technical needs & budget plans; 2) understanding our partners' technical capabilities & roadmaps; and 3) sharing SSED capabilities, accomplishments, and roadmaps with customers & partners
  • Lead development of detailed technical approaches for affordable microelectronics R&D programs
  • Lead development and delivery of white papers / ROMs and proposals to customers
  • Collaborate with SSED functional management, portfolio management, and lab management to define and secure the resources needed to execute microelectronics R&D programs (e.g. personnel, facilities, software, laboratory equipment)
  • Lead execution of microelectronics R&D programs, in collaboration with SSED portfolio managers, program managers, project management specialists, and technical lead engineers.
  • Regularly present technical findings to customers and their technical advisors.
  • Collaborate with customers to re-vector execution plans based on technical learning and evolving constraints, risks, and opportunities.
  • Collaborate with transition partners (internal & external) to develop and execute transition plans for successful adoption and integration of SSED-developed microelectronics technologies within partner organizations
