We are seeking several junior Machine Learning Research Scientists. We have several projects funded through DARPA that require Machine Learning and Reinforcement Learning skills. These projects involve developing innovative algorithms to perform swarm command and control based on reward feedback, estimate the structure and behavior of an external system through online learning, identify the level of environment dynamics and adapt a learning process accordingly, learn with high accuracy and in real-time from RF time series of data, and support general deep learning solutions on compact devices.

Applied research and technology development in Machine Learning as applied to different types of data such as cyber data, imagery, video, sensor feeds, RF samples, radar feeds, network traffic measurements, link statistics.

Design and development of advanced Reinforcement Learning algorithms for autonomous decision-making in online systems control.

Writing high quality scientific papers, patent applications, and research proposals.

US citizenship is required for this position. Must be eligible to obtain a US security clearance.


Requires 5 to 8 years with BS/BA or 3 to 5 years with MS/MA or 0 to 2 years with PhD.

* MS./Ph.D. in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mathematics/Statistics, or a related field.
* Algorithmic background in Machine Learning, Reinforcement Learning, Data Analytics, Statistics, or Probability Theory.
* Programming skills in implementing machine learning solutions for a variety of different types of structured and unstructured data.
* US citizenship is required for this position. Must be eligible to obtain a US security clearance.
