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

Date Posted: 4/23/2019

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

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!
