Position Summary and Responsibilities

Teledyne Brown Engineering (TBE) is hiring an 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. Multiple levels are available from entry to senior. Mid-level and senior analysts may provide leadership and oversight to other analysts and ensure the scientific integrity of our work across the program.

 

Position Responsibilities

 

The 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 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, more senior analysts will provide oversight and leadership for projects primarily conducted by more junior analysts.

 

Typical Duties

  • Support 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).
  • Support the development of linear programs or other optimization methods in various applications
  • Support systems engineering tasks to design new analysis tool components, then interfacing with the software development team to ensure correct implementation of the design.
  • Support literature-based research to inform modeling
  • Conduct and support analysis of data sets to inform simulation model random processes
  • Develop web-based data visualization dashboards (such as R Shiny) to communicate analysis to customers.
  • Support the development system models in commercial simulation software packages (Simio) to asses staffing levels, equipment availability, and other aspects of medical treatment facility operations.
