Research Scientist I or II (Mathematical Modeling) (Hybrid) – Biotechnology High Performance Computing Software Applications Ins (RESEA02185)




Full Time


Frederick, Maryland, United States

Join the HJF Team !

HJF is seeking a Research Scientist I or II to support the Biotechnology High-Performance Computing Software Applications Institute (BHSAI), located in Frederick, MD. HJF provides scientific, technical, and programmatic support services to BHSAI.

NOTE: All HJF employees are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Proof of vaccination or an approved religious or medical accommodation will be required.

The mission of the BHSAI is to perform interdisciplinary research, combining physical, computational, and life-science research, to improve the efficiency and efficacy in the development of militarily relevant medical products for Force Health Protection.

The incumbent will lead the development and execution of research projects. Supervises projects and investigates the feasibility of applying a wide variety of scientific principles and concepts to potential inventions, products, and problems. Develops new technologies and protocols.

Research in this area focuses on the development of individual-specific mathematical models and artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms for preventing non-battle injuries, optimizing and enhancing Soldier performance, and optimizing casualty care.

Research efforts in this area support military operational medicine and combat casualty care missions. For operational support, we are developing phenomenological, first-principle, and data-driven adaptive mathematical models to reduce the risk of heat injuries and improve mental activity in response to sleep deprivation. For casualty care, we are developing hardware and software platforms, as well as artificial intelligence-based decision-support algorithms, to improve the management of combat casualties in pre-hospital and in-hospital settings.
