at ORAU/ORISE DoD Programs

Date Posted: 11/28/2018

Opportunity Description

Title of Research Opportunity: Soldiers Teaming with Adaptive Agent Technology (STAAT) Opportunities exist to conduct basic research to inform theoretical and empirical principles for developing algorithms designed to interact with humans in simulated, and eventually physical environments. Topics of research include: (1) deep learning, reinforcement learning, human-computer/robot interaction, adaptive computation, cognitive computing, (2) modeling cognitive processes, developing computational models of human behavior, and (3) mathematical models of physical systems, human subjects data collection and analysis. The candidate will be expected to lead the algorithm development research which includes, 1) the analysis of previously collected data, 2) survey development, 3) human subjects data collection, 4) computational model architecture development, 5) simulation experimental setup development, and 6) simulation metric assessment criteria. In addition, the candidate will be assist with technical writing of reports, journal articles, and presentation at technical venues.

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.
