BAE Systems Research Scientist in Human-Machine Teaming in Burlington, Massachusetts

Job Description

Looking to develop innovative autonomy algorithms and/or software solutions for challenging real-world problems in collaborative, agile team advancing the state-of-the-art human-centered and human-in-the-loop decision support tools? You ve found the right place. Join us for amazing R&D challenges and work on revolutionary advanced autonomous technologies that make a direct real-world impact!

BAE Systems is looking for a research scientist, whose passion lies in envisioning and realizing innovative technologies for enabling human-centered analytics, mixed-initiative systems, and human-in-the-loop solutions, to join their Collaboration, Architecture and Reasoning Technologies (CART) directorate. CART is a leading multidisciplinary R&D department dedicated to meeting critical U.S. military needs. Our directorate specializes in R&D of innovative human-machine teaming, machine-machine teaming, and advanced computing across a variety of domains for customers in the Department of Defense (DoD) and Intelligence Community (IC). Our research spans the R&D lifecycle, from basic and applied research up through advanced technology demonstration to transitioning our results to business areas within our organization and in some cases directly to our government customers.

As a scientist in CART, you will work in small to medium groups of researchers and engineers on projects that typically last 1-3 years. While some of our work is fundamental research (i.e., advancing scientific frontiers) much of our work is also in the application of those new scientific to grounded domains and problems. As a research scientist, you will support research and development efforts through all phases of its lifecycle, from brainstorming and conceptualization, to opportunity identification and development, through research and experimentation during program execution. Working on different projects keeps things new and interesting,but the projects don't just stop when our research stops. CART is part of FAST Labs at https://www.baesystems.com/en-us/our-company/inc-businesses/electronic-systems/fast-labs , which acts as the research and development core of Electronic Systems' five other business areas. Once we finish the research, we work to transition our programs to those business areas.
