Through the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) this posting seeks a post-doctoral or post-masters researcher to apply for an appointment to participate in the research and development of advanced data analytics methods applied to energy infrastructure sensing applications, with an emphasis on natural gas infrastructure at the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL). NETL is a multi-disciplinary, scientific and technical-oriented national laboratory and the U.S. Department of Energy’s primary lab supporting fossil fuel-based energy research.
The scientist/researcher will collaborate on an interdisciplinary team spanning industry, academic, and national laboratory partners that seeks to develop and demonstrate advanced sensors and enabling technologies for energy infrastructure monitoring applications. An emphasis will be placed on artificial intelligence and related methods for predictive monitoring of incipient failures within the natural gas infrastructure by leveraging distributed optical fiber sensing. The candidate will also have opportunities to engage in data analytics for wireless sensor technology platforms and other energy infrastructure, including subsurface monitoring.
An ideal candidate would be capable of researching within the team to identify and apply advanced data analytics methods to characterize and classify spatial, temporal, and frequency dependent features of optical fiber based distributed sensing data as it relates to indicators of incipient failures and leaks within the natural gas infrastructure. The candidate would also be familiar with multivariate analysis techniques for extracting information related to multiple parameters simultaneously from advanced sensing platforms.
A successful candidate will have:
