Programmable Network Research
at ORAU/ORISE DoD Programs

Date Posted: 11/28/2018

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

Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) administers Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) research participation programs for civilians such as:

The Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) Program that allow senior scientists, faculty; high school, bachelor’s, masters’ and doctoral students, and recent graduates to enhance their science education experience in projects and activities at our Department of Defense (DOD) and other Government and Private Industry customers’ laboratories and research facilities worldwide.

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. Scientists and engineers at ARL help shape and execute the Army's program for meeting the challenge of developing technologies that will support Army forces in meeting future operational needs.

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, 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, and more.
