Human System Integration –Modeling and Tool Dev.
at ORAU Workforce Solutions

Date Posted: 3/23/2019

Opportunity Description

Research, develop and apply human systems integration (HSI) techniques, tools and technologies to provide the acquisition community with trade-off analyses and human performance data that support the selection of the optimum system design. There are many tools available to MANPRINT analysts (IMPRINT, C3TRACE) for achieving the objectives of: (1) enhancing the operational effectiveness, (2) ensuring optimal system design, (3) reducing total life-cycle costs, and (4) increasing Soldier survivability. However, significant gaps in available human systems integration tools remain. Post-doctoral candidates are sought in this area of Human Factors/Industrial Engineering. This research fellowship will entail working within a multidisciplinary team of other human systems engineers, software developers, operator subject matter experts, and system analysts. Research activities may focus on developing tools and models for assessing cognitive and physical workload due to design requirements, environmental stressors or task overload. Integrate within HSI tools those system design techniques applied by other disciplines such as system engineering, health hazard assessment, risk analysis, and cost analysis. Utilize human performance modeling tools to predict the impact of conceptual system designs on individual and team performance. Rigorous experimental evaluation and validation of any new tool(s) are expected. Click here for more information

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!
