Opportunity Description

Complex Cyber-Physical System Behavior and Trade-offs A research opportunity is available with the U.S Army Research Laboratory’s (ARL) Vehicle Technology Directorate (VTD), located at Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD. VTD is seeking a postdoctoral candidate with a background in Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics or a related field. Candidates are being sought at the intersection of systems engineering, operations research, and data science to conduct basic and applied research relevant to systems analysis of complicated and complex cyber-physical systems. This research will explore how system-of-systems analysis and complex systems analysis can provide near real-time feedback on how dynamic system reconfigurability affects system performance and resilience in unstable and uncertain operating environments. Of special interest is understanding the sequence of system state transformations in time and space, and how such transformations enable, prohibit, or unlock trade-offs while being affected by constraints.

About Us

Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) administers Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) research participation programs for civilians such as:

The U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Research Associateship Program (RAP) allow Postdoctoral Fellows, Journeyman Fellows (undergraduate and graduates students and recent graduates), Senior Researchers, and Summer Faculty engage in research initiatives of their own choice, that are compatible with the interests of the government and will potentially contribute to the general effort of the ARL. Scientists and engineers at ARL help shape and execute the Army's program for meeting the challenge of developing technologies that will support Army forces in meeting future operational needs.

Research opportunities include, but are not limited to the following disciplines: Aerospace Engineering, Anthropology, Archeology, Biology, Biochemistry, Biological Engineering, Biomechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Health Risk Assessment, Environmental Science, Entomology, Epidemiology, Ergonomics, Geology, Health Education Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, Mathematics, Nanotechnology, Photonics, Physics, Public Health Economics, Public Health Policy, and more.
