Research opportunities are available in the areas of computer networks, data security, data analytics, and machine learning. The research will involve making contributions to our lab's research thrust areas. These areas include network management/optimization, data security, critical infrastructure protection with an emphasis on electric power and remote sensing applications, cogntive radios, cloud computing, and data analytics for situational awareness, prediction, and informed decision-making.
The Associate will have a PhD degree in computer science, computer engineering, or a related field; and training or work experience in areas related to the research thrust areas listed above. Background in related areas, such as artificial intelligence, optimization, algorithm design, and operations research is also helpful, as is hands-on experience in software design and implementation using C/C++. Strong communication skills and the ability to work independently within an interdisciplinary team is necessary
Applicants who possess a strong motivation to pursue academic research are encouraged to apply.
