VIEW JOBS 3/17/2020 12:00:00 AM 2020-06-15T00:00 The Applied Research Laboratory for Intelligence and Security (ARLIS), based at the University of Maryland College Park, was established in 2018 under the auspices of the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence (USDI) to be a strategic asset for research and development in social systems, autonomy and augmentation, and advanced computing. One of only 14 designated Department of Defense University Affiliated Research Centers (UARCs) in the nation and the only UARC focused on supporting the intelligence community, ARLIS conducts both unclassified and classified research spanning from basic to applied system development and works to serve the US Government as an independent and objective trusted agent. ARLIS research is driven by a cadre of research scientists and engineers, faculty research specialists and project engineers, further supported by senior University of Maryland faculty and a consortium of university partners. Research is typically conducted through interdisciplinary teams of e.g. social scientists, computer scientists, psychologists, linguists, cognitive neuroscientists, applied mathematicians, political scientists, policy analysts, and systems engineers. ARLIS is actively seeking research scientists (in the full, Associate, and Assistant ranks) to commit effort on its projects. Exceptional candidates in all areas related to the ARLIS's current research trajectories will be given serious consideration, particularly those with experience in multiple areas. These include: * Psychological and brain sciences, including neuroscience, human cognition, individual differences, and social psychology; * Social influence and disinformation, detection and mitigation of insider threat, industrial/organizational psychology, and teamwork and group dynamics; * Computational social science (including agent-based modeling and simulation, social media analysis, behavioral economics, game theory, predictive modeling); * Human-machine interface (to include augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR), human-systems integration, and augmenting human performance; * Artificial intelligence, including computer vision, natural language processing, human language technologies, multimodal sense-making, and other AI/ML based systems; * Data science, data creation/curation, data fusion, visualization, analytics, and decision support; * Industrial security, including supply chain illumination and risk assessment; and * Software engineering, static/dynamic software analysis, formal methods, applied mathematics, trusted AI, metric development, testbed design, and systems verification and validation. Salary is dependent on experience, qualifications, and hiring level. University Of Maryland Berwyn Heights MD
