Opportunity Description

Programmable Network Research The Army Research Laboratory is developing Software Defined Network based communication channels for quantum metadata transport for interconnecting quantum nodes and sensors. So far no standard classical communication channel is defined to carry metadata between quantum devices. An area of research explores the use of SDN classical channel that will act like a bridge between the quantum and classical network layers. The selected candidate will contribute to the development of new SDN protocol extensions to create next generation programmable and intent aware networks for the army, allowing for real-time in-situ decision making. The candidate will also participate in the development of a framework for quantum sensor network using a brand new quantum entanglement testbed being established at our labs. Looking for a post-doctoral fellows with network programming experience and a strong numerical analytical skills. Familiarity with software defined Networking is plus but not required. Programming experience in Python and C++ is highly desirable. Experience with Linux and High Performance Computing environments will be beneficial to research on the projects the post-doc will be assigned. A Ph.D. in computer science or in any related fields is required and candidates getting ready to obtain their Ph.D. will also be considered for this opportunity. The candidate needs to have a green card while a US citizenship is preferred. Candidate will be place at the Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD locatiom 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.

If you are ready to take the next step in your career path, then we are ready to help you!
