Date Posted: 11/26/2018

Opportunity Description

Title of Research Oppotunity: Signature exploitation/reduction Located at Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland, the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) is the Army's central laboratory. Its diverse assortment of unique facilities and dedicated workforce of government and private sector partners make up the largest source of world-class integrated research and analysis in the Army. The Applied Physics Branch of the US Army Research Laboratory is looking for an applicant for a post-doctoral fellowship in the area signature exploitation/reduction to include complete knowledge of the electromagnetic spectrum and the wide range of possible sensors which take advantage of the various signatures of threats and vehicle/building platforms. Focus for sensors is likely to be support for active protection/adaptive armor. Both theoretical and experimental expertise is required of the candidate who should be able to 'think out of the box' and initiate solutions based on an examination of the problem presented and the current state of the art in various technologies. The successful applicant will have a PhD in Physics or a related discipline with an excess of 5 years’ experience in the field. This research opportunity is open to U.S. Citizens only. Keywords: Active Protection, threat sensor, threat tracking, vehicle protection
