Modeling And Simulation Analyst

Expired Job

Jdsat Washington , DC 20001

Posted 2 months ago

We are looking for an enthusiastic, self-driven, and experienced Modeling and Simulation analyst with strong agent-based and discrete-event simulation modeling background. Candidates applying for this position will be expected to have strong analytics skills and hands-on expertise developing and customizing simulation models. This position will support both federal government and private sector clients and will be partially remote and partially on-site. On-site work will occur within the Washington, DC area, so candidates must be based out of the DC area or be willing to relocate (relocation assistance may be available for this position).

The Qualifying Candidate must have at least (6) years experience in a requisite technical background, with at least (4) years demonstrated experience engineering simulation models and related analytical modeling, such as distribution fitting, statistical analysis, data analysis, and data manipulation and transformation for large, varied data sets. Because of the partially-remote nature of this work (e.g. candidate will perform a significant share of work over VPN), candidate must be independent, mature, and a superb communicator capable of coordinate through web-based conferencing, telephone communication, and email. Because some work will require a security clearance, candidate must possess or demonstrate eligibility to obtain a secret security clearance.

The Ideal Candidate will demonstrate expert skills in custom-coding models using Java or a similar object-oriented language and be capable of modeling complex systems represented by diverse and varied processes generating large quantities of data. The ideal candidate must be able to script in one or more data science languages (e.g. Python, R, SAS preferably Python). The ideal candidate will also be skilled in applications blending simulation and optimization and be able to understand and implement optimization algorithms in the context of a simulation modeling effort. The ability to implement optimization methods using Java or Python is highly desirable, although not strictly required.
