Arctan, Inc. is a small, meritocratic research and development firm. We work on advanced projects for a select group of government and multinational clients.
We have two immediate opportunities for Research Fellows. These positions are highly flexible: typically full time with a duration of 6 months to 2 years. The candidate will be expected to push the state of the art in specific areas of interest, and also to develop their own funded research areas. We offer a competitive base salary and aggressive incentive compensation. Publication is encouraged. Candidates must be able to work out of our offices in Northern Virginia.
We offer autonomy, responsibility, and the ability to move fast in high end arenas.
Our current portfolio includes cutting edge work in information theory, game theory, and data fusion. Our projects are significant and interesting, the data sets often unique. We will pursue research in any area where the quality of the people and the opportunity combine.
You will be paired with an experienced project manager and/or experienced Senior Research Fellows. We often collaborate with both academics and industry. If you want to build a signature project or result, this is a good opportunity for you. Learn a lot, earn a lot.
- A strong mathematical facility(Ph.D. / Post-doc level). Published work in Random Matrix Theory would be one example of this.
- Willingness to learn new programming languages quickly, and to be comfortable on the command line.
- Strong, versatile intellectual drive and curiosity required. Strong financial drive helpful but not required.
