Carnegie Mellon University’s CyLab invites applications for postdoc and systems scientist positions in computer security. CyLab is a university-wide institute with participation from all seven colleges, including the School of Computer Science and the College of Engineering. CyLab focuses on fundamental advances in security and privacy and includes over 100 affiliated faculty. Successful applicants for the postdoc and systems scientist positions will work with CyLab faculty and students on established projects. Postdoc positions are limited to three years; system scientist positions are not.
We believe our people — students, faculty, and staff — are our core strength. We emphasize excellence, integrity, respect, collegiality, interdisciplinarity, continuous improvement and engagement in community, all within a welcoming, supportive, and inspiring teaching and learning environment. We are particularly interested in applicants who are committed and have passion for a culturally diverse environment in research and demonstrate a willingness to nurture the inclusive environment at Carnegie Mellon. We take pride and active steps in considering a diverse applicant pool in terms of gender, race, veteran status, and disability.
All areas of computer security are relevant for these positions. Particularly of interest is research on new algorithms and capabilities to make computer systems more secure while reducing the human effort needed to do so. This includes, but isn’t limited to: applications of machine learning to security, such as threat prediction and network analysis; automated vulnerability diagnosis and repair; adversarial and trustworthy machine learning; and network-level, automated defenses.
Applicants should obtain a PhD in Computer Science or a closely related field before August 2018.
