Trust of Multisensory Displays for Improving Operator Situation Awareness
Research project will be conducted through the US Air Force/Wright-Patterson Air Force Base/711th Human Performance Wing (711/HPW) Human Insight and Trust. The mission of the 711 HPW is to advance human performance in air, space, and cyberspace through research, education and consultation. The Wing supports the most critical Air Force resource - the operational military forces. The Wing's primary focus areas are aerospace medicine, human effectiveness, science and technology, and human systems integration. This opportunity is located in Wright Patterson Air Force Base, OH.
The research project involves conducting research on the trust and use of multisensory displays for improving operator situation awareness in aviation and human-machine teaming contexts. Candidates may research existing literature, collect and analyze data for human subjects experiments, and collaborate on scholarly paper and presentations. The participant will gain experience in engaging in a cutting edge machine learning research project that will broaden their understanding of the current applications of the technology.
Candidate should be enrolled in a doctoral program in applied experimental psychology, human factors psychology, or a related field. Skills should include performing literature searches, laboratory management, technical writing, human subjects data collection and analysis, and creation of professional-quality presentations. GPA should be 3.5 or greater on a 4.0 scale. A qualified candidate should have experience conducting psychological research at a university laboratory, and knowledge of sensory perception research is highly desirable.
