We're a team of visual analytics and human-computer interaction researchers who love making big, complex data useful through new computational methods, great visual design, compelling interaction, support for sound analytic techniques, innovative cognitive modeling, novel human-machine teaming, and solid engineering. We develop new ways for people to benefit from data and care deeply about the intersection between human and computer to solve problems in new ways. We work with partners across PNNL to create solutions for our customers' hardest analysis challenges.
This position is for an early career researcher who is passionate about innovating at the intersection of visualization, HCI, and machine learning. The researcher will contribute to small teams that develop innovative visual analytics prototypes that address challenges across a wide set of national security application domains.
Building reputation through application of S&E principles and theories, and developing technical approaches to solve challenges
Building networks at a local and capability level. Effectively teaming to share resources and optimize research at the group and division level. Mentoring junior staff and students
Receives guidance on new assignments, making preliminary selections on technical alternatives; independently completes recurring assignments. Defines and leads project work at a small task/project level, reporting results on time and on budget. Contributes to proposals. Embraces expectations for quality, safety, and security. Communicates the importance within the work team
Member of external professional community. Presenter at national or international forums. Leads elements or sections of technical products
The researcher is expected to interact with the international visualization community, publishing in and attending conferences including but not limited to IEEE VIS, ACM CHI, ACM IUI
The position carries the expectation of creating new business in visualization or human-computer interaction research (for instance, through proposal writing) and publishing scientific results in peer-reviewed literature
Researchers and practitioners work side by side to apply advanced theories, methods, algorithms, models, evaluation tools and testbeds, and computational-based solutions address complex scientific challenges affecting energy, biological sciences, the environment, and national security
Operating on the data-information-knowledge continuum, staff at PNNL employ diverse methods to confront significant problems of national interest—from distilling distributed data into knowledge that supports decision processes, to enabling resilient technologies that enhance computing at extreme scales, to equipping cyber defenders with tools that prevent damaging cyber-attacks
Bachelor's degree with 2 years’ of experience, Master's degree with 0 years’ experience or a PhD with 0 year experience
Preferred academic coursework the disciplines of computer science, human computer interaction, visual analytics, human factors engineering, or related disciplines
The candidate needs to have exposure to software development in front end (e.g., React, redux, D3) back end (e.g., Flask), data analysis (e.g., Pandas), machine learning (e.g., scikit-learn, TensorFlow, PyTorch), and databases (e.g., MongoDB)
Knowledge in areas such as text analysis, graph theory, analysis, & visualization, dimension reduction, machine learning classification & regression, and optimization is highly desirable
Understanding of user experience design and evaluation methodologies (e.g,. design of experiments, empirical studies, qualitative studies, statistical analysis)
