Post-Doctoral Research Associate/Research Engineer, NC State University

Post-Doctoral Research Associate/Research Engineer

The Ergonomics Lab in the Edward P. Fitts Department of
Industrial & Systems Engineering at NC State University is
seeking a post-doctoral associate to join a highly productive
research team. The Ergonomics area of the department currently
includes three full-time research and teaching faculty
supervising masters and doctoral students. The Lab conducts
externally-sponsored and student research on both cognitive and
physical ergonomics topics (e.g., analysis of human-automation
interaction, human-machine interface design, biomechanical and
cognitive modeling, causality determination in human decision
making, human reliability assessment).

The Ergonomics Lab is in the process of expanding two directions
of research including: (1) human factors in design and evaluation
of assistive robotics and telemedicine systems, and (2) situation
awareness in dynamic control tasks and the use of in-vehicle
technologies and automated devices. The Lab currently has
research equipment to support these directions, including
prototype and commercial robots, control software systems,
virtual reality-based driving simulations and physical vehicle
interfaces. The successful candidate will work with the faculty
in expansion of these facilities and develop new proposals for
sponsored research on topics related to the thrust
directions. The Lab currently has funds to secure new
high-fidelity simulation facilities to define and evaluate
robot-health practitioner interaction paradigms in local and
telemedicine scenarios involving large-scale and rural health
facilities. The Lab also has funds for a new high-fidelity
driving simulator to develop a model of situation awareness in
driving and to predict driver performance under normal and hazard
conditions. With these new systems, the Lab will study human
performance in both domains towards developing system design
methodologies for effective patient service delivery with robotic
technology and to promote driving system safety and effective
vehicle automation design.

The requirements for this position include a PhD in
engineering/computer science with a concentration in human
factors, computational intelligence or cognitive science. A
research background in human performance/cognitive modeling,
situation awareness and workload analysis, and human factors
experimentation, including studies on human-robot interaction and
driving systems, is desired. The initial desired term of the
appointment is for 2 yrs. The position is renewable on yearly
basis, based on performance, up to 3 yrs.

For those wishing to apply for this position, please submit the
below documents on-line at: . (Click on
