Minorities at Risk Position Openings

The Minorities at Risk Project is accepting applications for two full-time research assistant positions. These are full-time, 10 month appointments, funded through grants from the National Science Foundation and the Department of Homeland Security. Position includes paid holiday leave and health benefits. Research assistants will work on collecting and standardizing information on violent and non-violent political organization that are mobilized through ethnic identities. Research assistants will record information – a process known as “coding” – on a wide range of indicators that include everything from the type of leadership the organization has, to what type of international support the organization receives, to whether the organization uses political violence or engages in terrorism. There will be a training period at the start of the positions.

One position will focus on researching organizations in the Middle East. One position will focus on researching organizations in Western Europe and/or South America. The salary range for these 10-month positions is $22,500-$25,000, depending on prior experience and education. The Minorities at Risk (MAR) Project is a research project that monitors and analyzes the status and conflicts of politically-active communal groups in all countries with a current population of at least 500,000. MAR currently tracks 284 politically-active ethnic groups throughout the world from 1945 – identifying where they are, what they do, and what happens to them. MAR focuses specifically on ethnopolitical groups, non-state communal groups that have “political significance” in the contemporary world because of their status and political actions. In 2005, MAR began a new project, MAROB (Minorities at Risk Organizational Behavior), which tracks organizations all over the world claiming to represent minorities. This project aims to answer some fundamental questions of interest to scholars, policy makers, and the general public about why organizations sometimes choose violence and terrorism as a strategy to achieve their goals.

A bachelor's degree in the social sciences is required. Candidates should have prior research experience, preferably in the study of ethnic politics, political violence and/or terrorism. Successful candidates will also possess regional expertise in the Middle East, South America and/or Western Europe.
Language skills relevant to the Middle East, Latin America and/or Western Europe are also advantageous, but not required. Experience in coding for social science projects is also preferred. Prior experience should demonstrate the ability to work independently and handle multiple tasks and shifting priorities.

Additional Information
The Minorities at Risk (MAR) Project is affiliated with two research centers at the University of Maryland, College Park: the Center for International Development and Conflict Management (CIDCM) and t he National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START). CIDCM, an interdisciplinary research center, seeks to prevent and transform conflict, to understand the interplay between conflict and development, and to help societies create sustainable futures. Using the insights of researchers, practitioners, and policymakers, CIDCM devises effective tools and pathways to constructive change. START is a U.S. Department of Homeland Security Center of Excellence, tasked by the Department of Homeland Security's Science and Technology Directorate with using state-of-the-art theories, methods, and data from the social and behavioral sciences to improve understanding of the origins, dynamics, and social and psychological impacts of terrorism. START aims to provide timely guidance on how to disrupt terrorist networks, reduce the incidence of terrorism, and enhance the resilience of U.S. society in the face of the terrorist threat.

How to Apply
For best consideration, interested persons should submit letter of application, transcripts, resume, and contact information for three references by September 3, 2010. Application materials should be emailed to Dr. Amy Pate at or mailed to: Dr. Amy Pate, Research Director, Minorities at Risk Project Center for International Development and Conflict Management 0145 Tydings Hall University of Maryland College Park, MD 20742 The University of Maryland, College Park, actively subscribes to a policy of equal employment opportunity, and will not discriminate against any employee or applicant because of race, age, gender, color, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability, religion, national origin, or political affiliation.

Volunteers Needed for Disaster Exercise

On Saturday, September 25 the Volunteer Centers and Medical Reserve Corps units in the Metropolitan Washington area will participate in a Regional Volunteer Reception Center Exercise. The purpose of the exercise is to test the ability of the region to utilize and manage spontaneous disaster volunteers.

Students are needed to role-play spontaneous volunteers who have heard about a disaster via the media and have reported to a local Volunteer Reception Center to offer their services to the relief effort. Spontaneous volunteers are people who are not affiliated with a disaster relief organization but who have useful skills and a desire to help the impacted community.

This is an opportunity for students to help the Metropolitan Washington region prepare for disasters. Anyone interested in participating must register by using this link - - to the Metropolitan Washington Regional VRC Exercise registration site. Participants will select one of 6 different Volunteer Reception Center sites in the region. Volunteers must be 18 years of age (16 if accompanied by a parent or guardian).

Upon arrival at the exercise site, all participants will be checked in and receive an orientation to the disaster scenario, including what to expect as they join the exercise play. This disaster exercise is made possible through a grant from the Department of Homeland Security to the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments.

If you need any additional information about this volunteer opportunity, please contact me – We appreciate your support of this important exercise!

ISIS: New Video Camera Sees It All

ISIS takes new video-camera and image-stitching technology and bolts it to a ceiling, mounts it on a roof, or fastens it to a truck-mounted telescoping mast. 360° surveillance video promises high-res detail, multiple views, and DVR features. Traditional surveillance cameras can be of great assistance to law enforcement officers for a range of scenarios—canvassing a crowd for criminal activity during a Fourth of July celebration, searching for who left a suitcase bomb beneath a bench, or trying to pick out a terrorist who has fled the scene and blended into a teeming throng in the subway. But there are shortfalls. For starters, once they zoom in on a specific point of interest, they lose visual contact with the rest of the scene.

But a new video surveillance system currently being developed by the Department of Homeland Security's Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) may soon give law enforcement an extra set of eyes. The Imaging System for Immersive Surveillance (or ISIS) takes new video camera and image-stitching technology and bolts it to a ceiling, mounts it on a roof, or fastens it to a truck-mounted telescoping mast. Like a bug-eyed fisheye lens, ISIS sees v-e-r-y wide. But that's where the similarity ends. Whereas a typical fisheye lens distorts the image and can only provide limited resolution, video from ISIS is perfectly detailed, edge-to-edge. That's because the video is made from a series of individual cameras stitched into a single, live view—like a high-res video quilt.

"Coverage this sweeping, with detail this fine, requires a very high pixel count," says program manager Dr. John Fortune, of S&T's Infrastructure and Geophysical Division, "ISIS has a resolution capability of 100 megapixels." That's as detailed as 50 full-HDTV movies playing at once, with optical detail to spare. You can zoom in close...and closer...without losing clarity.

The stitching together of several images isn't exactly cutting-edge magic. For years, creative photographers have used low-cost stitching software to create breathtaking high-res images (like that famous image of the National Mall from Inauguration Day 2009). But those are still images, created days or weeks after a scene was shot. ISIS is quilting video—in real time!And a unique interface allows you to maintain the full field of view, while a focal point of your choice can be magnified.

Other neat tricks—many of which are commercially available—will be provided by a suite of software applications called video analytics. One app can define a sacrosanct "exclusion zone," for which ISIS provides an alert the moment it's breached. Another lets the operator pick a target—a person, a package, or a pickup truck—and the detailed viewing window will tag it and follow it, automatically panning and tilting as needed. Video analytics at high resolution across a 360-degree field of view, coupled with the ability to follow objects against a cluttered background, would provide enhanced situational awareness as an incident unfolds.

In the event that a terrorist attack has occurred, forensic investigators can pore over the most recent video, using pan, zoom, and tilt controls to reconstruct who did what and when. Because these controls are virtual, different regions of a crime scene can feasibly be studied by separate investigative teams simultaneously.

Many of the ISIS capabilities were adapted from technology previously developed by MIT's Lincoln Laboratory for military applications. With the help of technology experts from the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Lincoln Laboratory has built the current system with commercial off-the-shelf cameras, computers, image processing boards and software.

ISIS creators already have their eyes on a new and improved second generation model, complete with custom sensors and video boards, longer range cameras, higher resolution, a more efficient video format, and a discreet, chandelier-like frame—no bigger than a basketball. Eventually, the Department plans to develop a version of ISIS that will use infrared cameras to detect events that occur at night.

S&T formed a partnership with the Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport), and in December 2009, began an ISIS pilot at Logan International Airport, allowing potential Homeland Security end users the opportunity to evaluate the technology. Beyond the potential for enhancing security at our nation's airports, if successful, the current testing at Logan could pave the way for the eventual deployment of ISIS to protect other critical venues.

That's a good thing, says S&T's Fortune. "We've seen that terrorists are determined to do us harm, and ISIS is a great example of one way we can improve our security by leveraging our strengths."
