Human System Integration & Social Cultural Analysi
at ORAU Workforce Solutions

Date Posted: 4/23/2019

Opportunity Description

The identification of cultural factors and how they contribute to effective performance in cross-cultural settings are an important part of the U.S. Army’s Human Systems Integration Program, also known as MANPRINT. Understanding and developing new methods, metrics and tools for assessing and lessening the impact cultural performance demands have on Soldiers operating under conditions of cultural differences is an important area of research. Post-doctoral candidates are sought in this area of Psychology, Sociology, and Human Factors/Industrial Engineering. This opportunity will entail doing research within a multidisciplinary team of other human systems engineers, software developers, operator subject matter experts, and system analysts. Research activities may focus on one or more aspects of socio-cultural factors and the impact on complex interactions of the commander and staff, social cultural taxonomy development and validation, socio-cultural decision-making tool development, and creating instructional exercises to improve socio-cultural systems skills and communication. Rigorous experimental evaluation and validation of any new methods or metrics are expected. Click here for more information
