Opportunity Description

Multi-Modal, Multi-Resolution, Multi-Source State Classification and Prediction The aim of this research is to develop computational methods to estimate and model a person’s state, (which may consist of their affective, psychological, physiological state, or their gestures and actions), from a set of sensor data about that person. This research is also aimed at predicting a person’s next state given their current one and the set of sensor information about them. Research opportunities exist in the following areas: o Modeling the correlations between different output states o Integration or fusion of sensor data from multiple sources measuring different modalities of information operating at multiple time scales o Processing sensor data of the autonomic and central nervous system in non-stationary settings o Real-time classification of streaming multimodal sensor data o State prediction from multimodal sensor data o Biologically inspired methods for pattern recognition and discrimination o Modeling cross modality interactions This research project will combine many fields of study, including, machine classification, EEG/ERP processing, EKG/ICG processing, gesture recognition, neuromorphic computing, and signal processing. Associates with experience in or more fields are preferred. Interested candidates should contact Dr. Harrison prior to submitting a research proposal.

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!
