What's It Like Working for MITRE in Singapore? Meet Juliana Goh!
When Juliana Goh earned her Ph.D. from the University of Illinois, she wanted to put her expertise as a human factors engineer to work for The MITRE Corporation. "I liked MITRE's not-for-profit status and its commitment to serving the public interest," she says. "MITRE was the only company I knew with that status in aviation. That's where I wanted to focus."
But when she graduated, Goh wasn't eligible for employment at MITRE. A Singapore national, she didn't meet our requirement that employees be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. An odd twist of fate ultimately intervened, however. The combination of her status as a Singapore citizen and her expertise in human-centered engineering and aviation helped Goh achieve her ultimate dream: to do international aviation research—as a MITRE employee.
Two years after joining MITRE, Goh began supporting Singapore with its aviation infrastructure needs. "I led the effort to create a research and development roadmap for the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS). Since aviation growth in the Asia Pacific Region is exploding, CAAS needed a plan to accommodate that regional growth. MITRE developed a roadmap as a first step in that effort."
Goh highly recommends MITRE as a place to work. "You can do meaningful research and serve the public good," she says. "Plus, it's a great place to be if variety and professional growth are important to you.
