Machine Learning Algorithms for Brain Computer Int
at ORAU Workforce Solutions

Date Posted: 12/23/2018

Opportunity Description

The Army Research Laboratory (ARL) has a research opportunity available in the research and development of brain-computer interaction technologies (BCIT). Specifically, ARL is looking for an outstanding individual to advance development of machine learning and classification techniques for increasing the robustness of Army-relevant BCIT. A successful candidate will have expertise in one or more of the following areas: statistical classification and machine learning methods, semisupervised graphical learning, analysis of large-scale data sets, advanced signal processing, multivariate statistics, computer programming, experimental design, EEG, and physiological recording and analysis. Emphasis will be on translational research and technology development that will leverage years of research. Candidate will support the short-term goal (5 years) of developing a working proof-of-concept system that demonstrates the viability BCITs in operational environments. The candidate will analyze data, perform system development, publish papers, and integrate ideas and methods with the ongoing efforts of a multidisciplinary research team.
