This position is an essential member in ensuring the successful start-up and operation of the Systems Application and Development Integrative Environment (SADIE) Lab. Crucial elements include the designs and supports of research projects. Performing development, verification and validation of computer simulations. Analyzes and presents data, including the use of advanced visualization methods. They will function as the day-day manager (with oversight from Dr. Berg) for the newly established Applied Systems Laboratory (ASL), including co-supervision of students, postdocs and less senior researchers. This position involves significant responsibility for ensuring the successful development of the ASL and lab environment, including safe operations and procedure compliance including data, cyber and physical security.
* Exercises independent judgment in planning, design, conduct, data collection, analysis, interpretation, and presentation of research and development; as necessary makes changes to experiments. * Plays leadership role in conceptualization and implementation of simulation engineering and support the setup and expansion of ASL and SADIE * Works largely independently but also collaborates with other researchers and staff within the lab and partner organizations * Conduct research and technology application development of computer simulations for complex and high-consequence processes and operations * Confers with the PI in developing and executing research projects, plans and is instrumental in developing tools and techniques. * Develops complex systems architectures, software engineering (programming), database interface development. * Conduct research and technology application related to the development of computer simulations for complex processes and operations * Leadership in conceptualization and implementation of simulation engineering and support the setup and expansion of the SADIE Lab * Leads evaluation of simulation software and approaches and implementing computer simulations potentially including agent-based models, discrete event simulations, systems dynamics models, probabilistic models, Bayesian belief systems, Monte Carlo simulations and other modeling approaches.
