Position Summary and Responsibilities

Teledyne Brown Engineering (TBE) is hiring a senior Operations Research Analyst to provide expertise related to a wide range of problem sets in industrial engineering, operations research, systems engineering, data science, and analytics. The senior OR Analyst will provide leadership and oversight to other analysts and ensure the scientific integrity of our work.


Position Responsibilities


The senior OR Analyst will apply knowledge and techniques from the fields of systems engineering, decision analysis, reliability engineering, and data analysis to support the design, development, and verification and validation of modeling and simulation software.


The senior OR Analyst will use knowledge of the fields of systems modeling, system simulation, mathematical optimization, and data science to conduct, direct and supervise analyses for the Naval Health Research Center and other organizations. The analyst will interface with customers and the software development team, develop and execute analysis plans, author technical reports and presentations, present results to customers and at professional conferences, directly support customers with onsite analysis and model development, and occasionally provide training or software support to external users. Additionally, the senior OR Analyst will provide oversight and leadership for projects primarily conducted by more junior analysts.


Typical Duties

  • Conduct and direct studies to assess the medical supportability of specific tactical concepts of operation (usually by building simulation models of possible medical networks to support the operation and testing those networks against the casualty estimates of the operation).
  • Conduct and direct the development of linear programs or other optimization methods in various applications
  • Conduct and direct systems engineering tasks to design new analysis tool components, then interfacing with the software development team to ensure correct implementation of the design.
  • Conduct and direct literature-based research to inform modeling
  • Conduct and direct analysis of data sets to inform simulation model random processes
  • Develop web-based data visualization dashboards (R Shiny) to communicate analysis to customers.
  • Conduct and direct the development system models in commercial simulation software packages (Simio) to asses staffing levels, equipment availability, and other aspects of medical treatment facility operations.

*This position requires the ability to obtain a DoD Security Clearance to the level of "Secret"*
