    Summary

    About the Organization:
    The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) is one of the most diverse engineering and scientific research organizations in the world. Provides high quality, responsive engineering and environmental research and development support to the Army and Nation.

    As part of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers team, ERDC develops innovative science and technology solutions to support warfighting, infrastructure, environmental, water resources, and disaster operations. For more information on our organization, please visit our website at www.erdc.usace.army.mil.

    The crown jewel of the Upper Connecticut River Valley, Hanover has been called by Money Magazine the number one town in the East among "smaller places that offered the best combination of economic opportunity, good schools, safe streets, things to do and a real sense of community." For additional information about the Hanover area, please visit the Hanover Chamber of Commerce website at http://hanoverchamber.org/

    The ERDC-Hanover, NH site is currently undergoing a remedial investigation of trichloroethylene (formerly used as a refrigerant) that was released into the environment. Interim actions are underway to monitor and mitigate trichloroethylene vapors of indoor air to ensure a safe work environment.

    Responsibilities

    In this interdisciplinary research position, you will support basic and applied research in physics and mathematically-based modeling of sensor performance.  You will develop and deliver new physics and mathematically-based software containing algorithms and models that support the diagnostics of sensor performance and optimal sensor placement.  You will implement and test new methodologies for characterizing terrain influences on sensor performance and sensor placement in geospatial information systems. The work involves military programs such as Real-time Adaptation, Prediction, and Informatics for Dynamic Military Noise Environments (RAPIDS) and Environmental Awareness for Sensor and Emitter Employment (EASEE) that have multiple complex features, which require highly original solutions. You will be responsible for delivering new capabilities of weather and terrain information with the prediction of sensor performance and optimal sensor placement. You will maintain customer relationships, develop proposals for new and additional work, and clearly communicate research goals and methods orally and in writing through published reports, peer-reviewed publications, and scientific presentations.
