Opportunity Description

Title of Research Opportunity: Cyber Defense Situational Awareness Modeling and Viz The goal of this research is to examine the issues underlying cybersecurity, devising novel theoretical constructs on which future cybersecurity visualizations will be based. Research is desired which will develop theories, models and understanding that will lead to more effective intrusion detection visualization techniques, e.g., how data can be effectively visualized for decision makers and how existing information can be acquired and fused with the effect of engendering greater understanding of events. Some specific avenues of research being considered include (but are not limited to): •Exploring models for the representation of cybersecurity, e.g., game theory. •Exploring ensemble techniques for improved detection with consideration of Byzantine General type attacks. •Considering forensics in the context of cybersecurity both as a representational model as well as an analysis paradigm to be visualized. •Considering behavior as a fundamental indicator in detection and analysis. •Acquiring improved network understanding with the goal of improving detection. •Developing novel detectors based on improved understanding to achieve low false positive and false negative rates. This is an opportunity to have a significant impact on future cybersecurity research, work with actual analysts in the network analysis domain, validate theories with ARL scientists, and test techniques on real-world data. Keywords: Visualization, Cyber Situation Awareness, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality

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!
