ACS Lab, Penn State, is Looking for a Research Associate

We have a new project to build a tutor for Army Nurses, starting ASAP
or expected Summer 2018.

We also have a project building a tutor for the Navy on maintenance
tasks, starting late summer.

A Research Associate position is available in the College of
Information Sciences and Technology at The Pennsylvania State U, U
Park Campus. This position will help build tutors to understand
learning about maintenance and other procedural skills. The applicant
should have, or be scheduled to complete, a Ph.D. in psychology,
computer science, industrial engineering, or a related field by the
time the employment starts. Candidates should have technical skills to
use the tutoring system and an interest in learning theory and
modeling. Programming skills can include: Ruby, Java, Lisp, ACT-R, R,
or related languages. Relevant knowledge include how to run studies,
statistical analyses (regression preferred over anova), and
writing. The work would include extending and maintaining a tutor and
tutoring language and associated tutors, helping to build new tutors,
testing the tutors through usability and learning studies, and
presenting the results in a variety of forms. This is a fixed-term
appointment funded for one year from the date of hire with the
possibility of re-funding. To apply, electronically submit a cover
letter describing qualifications, a CV and contact information from
three professional references to the web site and email Ritter. Review
of applicants is ongoing and the position will begin when a candidate
is selected.
