The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL), a national leader in scientific research and development, located midway between Baltimore and Washington, DC is seeking a postdoctoral researcher.
Attacks on civilian and military soft targets (e.g. schools, bases, convoys) have demonstrated the need for improved detection of bad actors through advanced sensing and analytics. To address this problem, we are developing technologies to detect concealed person-borne threats such as firearms and explosives.
The postdoctoral researcher will develop and implement computational imaging techniques, signal processing theories and algorithms, and physics-based simulations to advance RF imaging capabilities. Publications and conference presentations of their findings are encouraged.
