Opportunity Description

About CISD Computational and Information Sciences Directorate (CISD) conducts research in a variety of disciplines relevant to achieving and implementing the so-called digital battlefield. Problems address the sensing, distribution, analysis, and display of information in the modern battle space. CISD research focuses on four major areas: communications, atmospheric modeling, battlefield visualization, and computing as described below. Research is conducted to enhance the performance of existing battle space communications and to develop new concepts for communications and information distribution. Current interests focus on wireless digital communications in an integrated architecture, multimedia communications, the technology of information distribution, peer-to-peer mobile ad-hoc networking, network science, and information assurance. Research is conducted to improve our understanding of the atmosphere and its critical relationship to the performance of Army Systems; to create physically correct models that support the generation of realistic scenes of targets, terrain environments, cultural features, and battle damage; and to impact standards and protocols of the international modeling and simulation community. We are especially interested in physics-based models, three-dimensional visualization, and environmental and atmospheric modeling. Research is conducted to provide the Army the technologies for information processing and presentation in the battle space, and for use of information to control systems and hardware used in land warfare. We are also interested in intelligent systems, battle space visualization, soldier-centered computer interfaces (HCI), advanced display technologies, tactical decision aids, software engineering, and data base technologies. Research is conducted to provide the Army the technologies enabling a user-friendly synthetic environment in which all operation and support functions will be conducted with help from intelligent systems. We are also interested in advanced distributed simulation, software and intelligent systems, and high-performance computing. High-performance computing research involves developing numerical modeling techniques to achieve highly optimized, multidisciplinary physical modeling on scalable computer architectures.

About Us

Grooming future leaders in science and technology requires enhancing the skills, knowledge and experience of workers early in their careers. To that end, ORAU (Oak Ridge Associated Universities) assists in connecting the best and most diverse students, recent graduates, faculty and professionals with world-class fellowships, internships and jobs, whether in national laboratories, research institutions, federal government offices or private sector R&D departments.

ORAU works with agencies 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. We work with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to place recent graduates in full-time and part-time jobs in the Office of Research and Development at EPA under the National Student Services Contract. ORAU also works with Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation.

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, Data Science, 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, Toxicology, and more.

If you are ready to take the next step in your career path, then we are ready to help you!
