Controls and Electronics Engineer
Praecis, Inc. is seeking a Controls Engineer to lead a small development team in the continuing development and refinement of multi-loop PID systems for the control of temperatures inside instrument enclosures.

Praecis relies upon modern digital controls technology and multiple control loops to achieve state-of-the-art performance (to +/-0.001ºC) at an affordable, cost-effective price. The successful applicant must have a BS/BE/MS/PhD or equivalent experience in electronics or controls, and be experienced in designing complex control systems. S/he must be familiar with modern control theory, practices and products, and be proficient in at least some of the following areas:
· Data acquisition and processing in both the time and frequency domains
