Date Posted: 3/28/2019

Opportunity Description

The United States Army Research Laboratory (ARL) is seeking applications for one postdoctoral fellow to support research in the development of an adaptive synthetic teammate to the Soldier. ARL is a basic and applied science and technology laboratory, which aims to understand and predict cognitive, affective, and social behaviors. This project is with the Multilingual Computing and Analysis Branch (MCAB), Computational and Information Sciences Directorate. The MCAB team conducts research to better understand the Army customer’s needs, understand insight generation, situational understanding, and human-agent teaming in a military setting. The post-doc fellowship requires conducting basic research to inform theoretical and empirical principles for developing algorithms designed to interact with humans in simulated, and eventually physical environments. Potential topics of research include: (1) deep learning, human-computer interaction, human-robot interaction, adaptive computation, or cognitive computing, (2) modeling cognitive processes, developing computational models of human behavior, or (3) mathematical models of physical systems. U.S. citizenship is required. The successful candidate has or will complete a doctorate by November 15, 2017, in one of the following disciplines: cognitive psychology, computer science, engineering psychology, electrical engineering, physics, systems engineering, statistics, mathematical modeling, or a related field. Strong research design and data analysis skills are required. Programming or research experience involving 2D or 3D data visualization is highly preferred, but not necessary.
