Dear Colleagues,

The Vulnerability Analysis Branch of the Air Force Research Laboratories (AFRL) at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, OH is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral research associate to join a team of scientists involved in the study of remote human biosignatures for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR). The postdoctoral appointment is to be administered as an Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) research fellowship with the duty station identified as the AFRL’s Vulnerability Analysis Branch in Dayton, OH. The selected candidate will join the Human Measurement and Signatures Intelligence (H-MASINT) Team and will focus on research elements related to human movement science and 3D human shape modeling. The 3D Human Signatures Laboratory (3DHSL) which directly supports the H-MASINT Program is a 3,000 square foot world-class research facility which allows for the high-fidelity measurement of human size, shape, and motion.
The facilities housed within the 3DHSL include a 10-camera Motion Analysis Corporation Raptor motion capture system (capable of outdoor data collection) with an additional four high-resolution Basler digital cameras, two embedded AMTI ground reaction force sensors, and a Cyberware full-body 3D laser scanning system.

Requirements:
• US citizen, Eligible for or in possession of a background security clearance
• Completed PhD (or equivalent) in biomechanics, human movement science, computer vision with an emphasis on human motion tracking, or a related discipline; not more than 5 years postdoctoral experience
• Experience with, and comprehensive understanding of, 3D kinematic analyses, human anthropometry, and software programming (LabVIEW, MATLAB, or C++ preferred)
• Specific research interests should include human gait/activity recognition, 3D dynamic human modeling, machine learning and pattern recognition

Contact Information:

This project is available through the Biosciences and Performance Division Postgraduate Research Program at AFRL and is administered by the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE). For an application, send a copy of a current resume or CV to:

Dr. Adam M. Fullenkamp
