Student Opportunities

Updated on Tue, 09/06/2011 - 11:52am

Dr. Peter Pirkelbauer has several funded openings for PhD students. Candidates should be enthusiastic and curious about one or more of the following areas: Static Analysis, Source Code Transformation Systems, Runtime Systems and Continuous Optimizations, Software Verification Systems, and Non-Blocking Software Design. Programming experience in C++ and/or functional languages is a plus.

Prof. Saxena is looking for several strong Ph.D. students as well as M.S. and undergraduate students to join his research group SPIES (Security and Privacy In Emerging computing and networking Systems). In general, Prof. Saxena works in the broad areas of computer and network security/privacy, and applied cryptography. His main research focus recently has been on security of mobile/wireless devices, and on usable security (aka HCI security). He is interested in hands-on and experimental work which has theoretical underpinnings. His current research has been funded by NSF, NYU, Google, Intel, Nokia and Research in Motion. Outlined below are some of Prof. Saxena's ongoing research projects. Many of these projects have their own websites accessible here: http://www.cis.uab.edu/saxena/research.html.

Professor Johnstone has openings for PhD students in the areas of shape modeling and computer vision. The specific research projects are outlined below. Desirable characteristics for all projects are strong coding skills (preferably in C++), mathematical maturity, and enthusiasm. Experience with one of the proposed topics is an advantage, but not necessary. These positions include full GA support.
