Machine learning with applications to diagnostics,
at ORAU Workforce Solutions

Date Posted: 3/14/2019

Opportunity Description

Title of Research Opportunity: Machine learning with applications to diagnostics, prognostics and risk assessment Most problems in science and engineering require predictions. Predictions are invariably data driven, i.e., based on past observations or measurements. For example, we can look at past vibration patterns of a component, measure property changes, and so on, to make predictions about the state of a system and its performance. Most prediction problems can be viewed as machine learning problems where the predictors are learned from the available data. The goal of this project is to develop and test advanced machine learning algorithms suitable for diagnostics, prognostics and risk assessment of complex air systems. Emphasis is on a recent sub-field of deep-learning for big-data in the settings of supervised, unsupervised, and reinforcement learnings. We will formulate machine learning problems, identify optimal methods and assumptions needed, and specify guarantees that we might be able to provide for different methods.

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!
