The Multi-scale, Mixed-domain, Mixed-autonomy Teams for Resourceful Operations (M3TRO) Group draws from various disciplines - including mathematics, physics, control theory, artificial intelligence, machine learning, operations research, computational social science, and game theory - to advance the state-of-the-art in complex system analysis, interactive analytics, and coordinated adaptive systems. Today's threat environment and tomorrow's conflicts will require the coordination of analytic capabilities and autonomous systems that can learn and adapt to uncertain, contested, and evolving operating environments in support of warfighters, intelligence analysts, and special operators. Our research and development portfolio spans the Autonomy stack in multiple dimensions: adaptive controls and coordination, learning and sense-making, and computational modeling. We work across the S&T spectrum, from fundamental model and algorithm development to simulation-based and laboratory experimentation, with an eye toward internal and external technology transfer to operational systems. Applications include coordinated autonomy for multi-platform operations; interactive analytics for decision-makers in complex environments; and computational models that enable intelligent systems to make decisions in the context of other intelligent actors. We are funded by various research organizations, including DARPA and the service labs, and our mandate includes transitioning technologies into operational systems.
As a Senior Principal Scientist II, your responsibilities include setting technical direction on programs and technology capabilities, leading technical designs and technical teams, leading and contributing to conference and journal publications, and engaging in the development and pursuit of business opportunities. We value candidates who are self-directed yet are good team players, entrepreneurial, and goal- and success-oriented. We seek candidates who will share in the excitement that we have for protecting our service members, provide leadership for various complex problem areas, independently develop creative solution strategies, and work successfully in multi-disciplinary academic/industry teams.
This role can based out of our Arlington, VA or Reston, VA locations, though it will require collaboration with staff across our business areas and facilities in the Northeast.
