Semiconductor Device Technology Consultant

The Challenge:

What if you could use your engineering skills to transform compound semiconductor technology for the DoD? As an electrical engineer, you understand the power behind complex systems. That knowledge is key when it comes to serving as a strategic consultant for high-risk, high-payoff government research and development programs involving leading edge microelectronics, including the technical areas of wide bandgap compound semiconductor circuit design and advanced materials and devices. We’re looking for an electrical engineer who can use their skills to impact national security investment in the advancement of state-of-the-art integrated compound semiconductor technologies, including GaN, InP, SiGe, SiC, and other advanced material platforms, by combining strategic advising with in-depth technical analysis.

Our team provides assessments of new technologies to support senior-level client decision makers.That’s why we need you, an engineer who specializes in wide bandgap materials and devices, to assist with technical program management, program development, and briefing materials for government R&D efforts. You'll conduct background research to evaluate the feasibility and defense applications of new semiconductor device-related technological concepts and produce and present findings and recommendations to a team of colleagues and clients. This is a chance to use your semiconductor device engineering skills while gaining insight into the management of high-risk government funded research. Join us and help develop breakthrough technologies for future defense needs.

Empower change with us.
