Opportunity Description

Intelligent Energy - Modeling, Design, and Control of Cyber-Physical Power Architectures The successful candidate is expected to conduct research addressing intelligent energy concepts and designs related to future Army power and energy needs. The primary initial focus will address Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) challenges as relevant to power grid security and reliability. The candidate will develop grid and microgrid models using hardware and software testbeds (OPAL and similar real-time simulator systems) integrating power and control components in coordination with cyber-physical architecture experiments. Embedded systems and controllers (HWIL) will be investigated for vulnerabilities to cyber security attacks. Advanced control algorithms will be developed for grid and microgrid application. Distributed generation and loads will be controlled by hardware in the loop using the OPAL simulator. Advanced communication and Smart Grid protocols will be developed and deployed in the simulator system. 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.
