Fundamental Human Factors Research

Scope note
Knowledge of human engineering research methods (e.g. literature search, experiment, operational analysis, observation, survey, protection of research subjects) and activities (e.g., experimental design, planning data collection, data analysis, statistics, and documentation. Knowledge of the effects of environmental, individual, cognitive and organizational factors on the behavior and performance of humans, as well as the associated underlying physiological, psychological and social/organizational drivers that influence human behavior. Includes knowledge of a variety of psychophysical areas such as, but not limited to, biomechanics, perception, cognition, sensory-motor control, communication, decision-making, and teamwork and human-automation interaction. Ability to apply theories, experimentation, analysis and modeling to increase fundamental knowledge about human cognition and performance. Ability to develop human factors principles and guidelines which could be used toward designing technology for human performance in complex aerospace operational environments to reduce errors and increase productivity.
