The Real-Time Assessment of Humans in Operational
at ORAU Workforce Solutions

Date Posted: 12/23/2018

Opportunity Description

Current technologies have begun to enable the development of human monitoring systems that can be used in real world environments. For example, both wearable, wireless EEG systems and eye- and head-tracking systems have been designed to acquire recordings during the performance of dynamic tasks in environments that have traditionally been considered too noisy to allow valid and robust measurement. However, the application of systems such as EEG to increasingly complex and dynamic environments raises fundamental questions regarding data interpretation. This effort seeks to investigate algorithms and approaches suitable for real-time human assessment that integrates state-of-the-art eye- and head-tracking, EEG recording and analysis systems, physiological monitors, task performance indicators, and/or adaptive displays within ecologically typical environments (such as inside moving vehicles), rather than the standard isolated laboratory. The Associate will be doing research to develop this implementation. Extensive experience with EEG/ERPs and physiological data interpretation techniques is preferred, with an interest in applying these technologies to real-world environments. Associates should have backgrounds in both applied engineering and neuroscience. 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 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.
