Good Morning All, I have created a new Postdoctoral position on the MOSES team. The position funding and HR will be handled by Oak Ridge Nat'l Labs, but the work will be performed onsite in Orlando, Fl.
This is a two year paid position, relocation assistance may be approved, and insurance benefits are provided. The position also includes travel responsibilities. I have identified two areas of research for this position and applicants must specify which research topic they wish to concentrate on. Both areas of research are related to technology advanced needed to support distributed simulation based training applications. Specifically with automated load balancing and independently running collaborative clusters. In practical terms, imagine having a distributed scene graph that can automatically reconfigure itself by adding or reallocating computing resources based on user behaviors.
Topic 1 deals with an investigation of the creation of a physics cluster that can automatically detect and reallocate computing resources based on demand. This cluster is envisioned to be a pooled resource, rather than coupled with a specific simulator instance.
Topic 2 is a more generic and involved total simulation load balancing. Currently the simulators require scenario examination and resource planning before deployment. Also many system including Opensimulator have static terrain limits. I'm looking for automation of the allocation of resources based on user behaviors.
Applicants must be American citizens or a naturalized American citizen and you must be able to get a security clearance. If you are interested or know of a qualified person to fill this position, please contact me. Thx. v/r -douglas
