R&D Engineer

In the position as an R&D Engineer (Signal Processing) you will apply your knowledge in applied mathematics and signal processing to develop underwater acoustic systems. You can make a difference by introducing new methods in an established field, boosting performance of hydroacoustic sensors (sonar, ADCP, echo sounder etc.) within a wide range of applications including ocean science, sustainable fisheries and defense.  

The position is in our central technology department designing underwater acoustic systems. Your coworkers are leading experts in acoustics, electronics, embedded design and signal processing, passionate about their work and ready to share their knowledge. In the beginning you will work on sonars, ADCP and echo sounders. You will have the opportunity to develop your role based on competence and interest. We also encourage newly graduates to apply.

Key accountabilities 

  • Develop and improve signal processing methods that optimize performance within the constraints of a real system 
  • Model and analyze underwater acoustic systems to understand performance in practice 
  • Contribute to the complete development cycle, from design to implementation and ocean testing 

Relevant qualifications and experience 

  • Strong theoretical background (MSc/PhD) in Signal Processing, Applied Mathematics or similar 
  • Beamforming, filter design, detection, classification or tracking 
  • Numerical mathematics, mathematical modelling, wave propagation modelling (e.g. ray tracing) 
  • Experience from hydroacoustics or related domains, e.g. radar, ultrasound, seismics, audio, optics 
  • Programming skills, e.g. MATLAB, Python, C/C++, VHDL, R 

You are able to 

  • Use a methodical and systematic approach, plan ahead, define clear priorities and allocate resources effectively 
  • Analyze complex issues and problems and come up with rational judgments 
  • Co-operate well with others, share knowledge, experience, information and support others in the pursuit of team goals
