NorthWest Research Associates (NWRA; is a scientific research organization, owned and operated by its Principal Investigators, with expertise in the geophysical and space sciences.  The nine current Ph.D. physicists and electrical engineers composing NWRA’s Monterey, California location are respected experts in radiowave propagation and signal processing for radar and communication systems, ionospheric modeling, and signal scattering in randomly structured ionization.  We are looking for physicists, applied mathematicians, and EEs, preferably at the Ph.D. level, to support several interesting new projects involving propagation modeling and signal processing for ionosphere and space-weather modeling.  A strong ability in applied mathematics, especially inverse problems, is desirable.

New hires will work closely with our seasoned scientists on existing projects; early-career scientists would gain in further career growth from mentorship by world-class experts.  NWRA provides a supportive environment for scientists who have a passion for their research, a desire to continue learning, and who enjoy communicating their research and research ideas through papers, presentations, and proposals.  NWRA scientists can eventually become Principal Investigators of their own projects and co-owners of NWRA.  US Citizenship is required.

NWRA offers a full benefit package including health, life, disability, and long-term care insurance and matching 401K contributions.  Please send resumés to
