Postdoc Positions in Machine Learning and Cyber Security

 

I have several postdoc positions available in my group for outstanding individuals to conduct research in machine learning, cyber security, and adversarial machine learning.

 

The first area of interest is in applications of machine learning to cyber security for global threat detection and coordination. For a flavor of this work, visit http://www.ccs.neu.edu/home/alina/papers/MADE.pdf. This project is funded by the DARPA CHASE program.

 

The second area of interest is in adversarial machine learning. We are performing research in poisoning and evasion attacks in cyber networks. For a flavor of this work, visit https://arxiv.org/abs/1804.00308.

 

The mentors for both positions are Professors Alina Oprea and Tina Eliassi-Rad. The postdoctoral fellows will be affiliated with the Khoury College of Computer and Information Sciences and the Cybersecurity and Privacy Institute at Northeastern University. The positions are based in Boston, MA.
