Post-Graduate Fellowships with DHS

We wanted to share with you that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is offering post-Master and post-Doctoral fellowships for their Visiting Scientist Program cohort at the Transportation Security Laboratory (TSL).

You will join a cohort of post-graduates in a new endeavor in threat detection technology and applied research, specifically related to synthetic data generation, testing and evaluation. The project involves a team of TSL staff and researchers focused on a two-fold approach involving x-ray and millimeter wave regimes. The first component involves creating synthetic signatures of prohibited materials from laboratory computed tomography (CT) data, and inserting these into acquired CT images of passenger baggage. The second component will use millimeter wave data of actual threats to create synthetic images of personnel with threats for analysis.

Within the proposed project, there are multiple opportunities available to engage in your applied research and evaluation interests. These include, but are not limited to,

  • Deep learning algorithm testing
  • Synthetic signature and/or image generation
  • Data manipulation and quality assurance
  • Threat analysis testing and evaluation

Benefits

  • Stipend starting at $80,000 based on your academic level and experience
  • Health Insurance Allowance
  • Relocation Allowance up to $2,000, if you are located more than 50 miles one way from the hosting facility.
