Human Factors Scientist/Engineer

Job Description

Infoscitex (IST), a DCS company, has an outstanding opportunity for a Human Factors Scientist or Engineer to develop display concepts, define system requirements, and support physiological sensing integration, measurement, and quantification. In this role, you will work with a multi-disciplinary team to improve User Interfaces (UIs) and develop an accurate assessment of operator state data across cognitive, biological, physiological, and psychological measures. Your work will support production of new autonomy capabilities for the US Army, and involves working with subject matter experts in Army aviation and software engineering areas to develop state-of-the-art UIs for decision aiding and vehicle control.

This research program combines performance data (number of tasks completed), cognitive data (was the optimal course of action chosen), and physiological measures (heart rate, eye-tracking) to produce a multi-dimensional assessment tool to measure operator workload during manned-unmanned aircraft teaming missions. You should be prepared to integrate data across cognitive, biological, physiological, and psychological measures into a real-time model of an operator’s cognitive state (i.e., workload, attention, situational awareness) that correlates with associated operator performance within representative simulated task environments.

In this role, you could expect to do the following:

Setup, configure, and operate an eye-tracking system, including such steps as system installation, troubleshooting, synchronization, and calibration.

Extract output data from a high precision eye-tracking system to use in both real-time and post hoc analyses.

Setup and configure a device that captures physiological measurements including: Heart Rate, Heart Rate variability, Respiration, and 3-Axis Accelerometer.

Record, integrate, and summarize logged data results from a collection of physiological measures, to use in both real-time and post hoc analyses.

Develop assessments of operator states using statistical analyses of data from both eye-tracking and physiological measurement systems.

Requirements:

Due to the sensitivity of customer related requirements, U.S. Citizenship is required.

At least a Bachelor degree in a Human Factors Engineering, or a related technical discipline; with at least 2 years of related experience.  (There are multiple levels associated with this opportunity category.  Candidates with advanced degrees or varied levels of experience may be considered for alternative classification.)

Applicants selected will be subject to a U.S. Government background investigation and must meet eligibility requirements for access to sensitive information: NAC. 

Experience leading data collection of physiological measurements (e.g., heart rate, eye-tracking).

Strong math and analytical skills.


Ability to participate in limited intermittent travel (less than 10%).


While not firm requirements for consideration, we believe an exemplary candidate would also bring an advanced degree in a related discipline.
