Overview:  We are seeking a  senior research scientist to lead a world class research group in the areas of Systems and Decision Sciences needed for the ORNL and DOE mission.  Responsibilities include group leadership, research,  and group management.   

The System and Decision Sciences Group consists of researchers focused on the analysis of natural and human complex systems and networks, operations research, artificial intelligence, inferential Bayesian statistics, discrete optimization, with an emphasis on DOE mission-critical applications, high performance/large-scale computing and large-scale data processes and applications. 

The position will be in the  Mathematics in Computation Section within the Computer Science and Mathematics (CSM) division.  CSM delivers fundamental and applied research capabilities in a wide range of areas, including applied mathematics and computer science, experimental computing systems, scalable algorithms and systems, artificial intelligence and machine learning, data management, workflow systems, analysis and visualization technologies, programming systems and environments, and system science and engineering. 

Purpose: You will have the opportunity to provide Research and Development (R&D) leadership to a group that strategically advances science and technology consistent with ORNL’s aspiration to be the world’s premier R&D institution and ORNL’s science culture. In this role, you will bring together a group of peers with the primary goal of pursuing global scientific leadership in their field, nurture ORNL’s culture among group members, and continue to build and scale up individual excellence and impact in R&D. This role reports to and works closely with the Section Head for Mathematics in Computation to implement the group’s scientific vision; develop group members to enable their career advancement; establish capabilities that enable programs to excel at the forefront of science and technology; perform R&D to advance the field of knowledge and/or technology in one’s respective specialty; set, implement, and model standards for performance of work consistent with Environment, Safety, Security, Health, and Quality (ESH&Q) requirements and business rules; and ensure a diverse and inclusive work environment where every employee feels safe, heard, and appreciated—a workplace that sets an example for the broader community. 

Major Duties/Responsibilities:  We are seeking a recognized leader in their area of technical expertise that will initiate, lead and perform independent R&D on an ongoing basis.  

Basic Qualifications:  
  • Requires a PhD  in Mathematics, Computer Science, Statistics, or Computational Sciences, and at least six years of relevant research experience, beyond the PhD. 
  • A well established track record of research in an area relevant to one or more areas of expertise of the group. 
  • Demonstrated experience in leading R&D projects. 

 Preferred Qualifications
  • Research relevant to  high performance computing, large scale data-informed methodologies and algorithms. 
  • Research in the applications of  graph-theoretic analysis, probabilistic approaches to complex systems, operations and decision research. Excellent written and oral communication skills.
  • Effective interpersonal skills.
