Dr. Zhiyun Qian at the Computer Science and Engineering department in University of California Riverside is hiring multiple motivated PhD students in the area of system and network security. Qian’s work has led to security flaws discovered in Android, Linux, Mac, and firewall vendors such as Check Point. The projects are not only published in top-tier security conferences but also frequently covered by major tech news. More details can be found in his webpage is at http://www.cs.ucr.edu/~zhiyunq/.
Any students with strong background on the system and/or networking knowledge, or with good programming or reverse engineering skills are encouraged to apply. Security background, static or dynamic program analysis, or formal verification experiences are not required but big pluses. If you are interested in practical security problems and enjoy hacking, the position would be an excellent fit. Students with Bachelor or Master degrees are both welcome to apply. All applications need to be submitted through the official admission website. However, if you have questions or are really interested in the research topics and want to introduce yourself, you can drop your CV and transcript (unofficial is fine) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
