About the Research
ARL requires one engineering research scientist/engineer fellow to research“Continuous Monitoring of Soldier Variability for Continuously Adaptive Technologies” to enable real-world, physiological monitoring of Soldiers as individuals and small groups working with intelligent systems in complex military relevant environments to enable dynamic interactions depending upon current capabilities. Specifically, the opportunity will develop novel theories, develop experiments to validate, and hardware to implement solutions to the problem of:
How do we model and measure individual sensors across a deformable, distributed frame (e.g., a human) that are part of a distributed heterogeneous sensor system to 1) remove individual sensor induced measurement noise a priori and online, and 2) generate a robust, resilient state estimate at the individual level?
This person will be expected to collaborate with others to collect longitudinal human subjects research data; analyze that data and develop novel technologies and theories. This person will be expected to publish first author efforts in peer reviewed literature; contribute technically to peer reviewed literature in diverse areas within and outside of the team; and, develop experimental and transition efforts across the team. This opportunity will involve a mix of skill sets ranging including developing theories supporting distributed state estimation and validating those theories in hardware. This project is expected to do research fluidly in Linux, ROS, Matlab, C/C++.
Recent graduate with a PhD in control systems, electrical, mechanical engineering, computer science, material science, neuroscience, bio-engineering, mathematics, physics or other appropriate discipline.

The Sensors and Electron Devices Directorate (SEDD) is the Army’s principal center for research and development in the exploration and exploitation of the electromagnetic spectrum, which includes radio frequency, microwave, millimeter-wave, infrared (IR), visible, and audio regions. SEDD is responsible for advances in laser sources, RF sources, IR sensors, signature detection and decoding, target imaging and its interpretation, fusion of data derived from several sensors, and electromagnetic protection.
In addition, SEDD is responsible for improving the technology base for electron devices and materials related to sensors and power devices. Research is conducted in related aspects of physics, electrical engineering, computer science, solid-state physics, chemical engineering, material sciences, and electrochemistry.
The Army Research Laboratory Research Associateship Program (ARL-RAP) is designed to significantly increase the involvement of creative and highly trained scientists and engineers from academia and industry in scientific and technical areas of interest and relevance to the Army. Scientists and Engineers at the CCDC Army Research Laboratory (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 by pursuing scientific research and technological developments in diverse fields such as: applied mathematics, atmospheric characterization, simulation and human modeling, digital/optical signal processing, nanotechnology, material science and technology, multifunctional technology, combustion processes, propulsion and flight physics, communication and networking, and computational and information sciences.
