PhD student position, 2020

Dartmouth Department of Computer Science
Professor David Kotz


I am currently seeking new PhD students to join my team beginning Fall 2020. Applications are being reviewed as they arrive.

Interested candidates may apply by email, supplying their vita and a cover letter indicating how their background might fit with our research.

As a PhD student in my group you would be involved in an interdisciplinary research team investigating security and privacy in the Internet of Things (IoT), with an emphasis on the context of Smart Homes. As such, you would be part of the seven-university SPLICE project led by Professor Kotz. You would also have the opportunity to engage more broadly with the Department of Computer Science and with the cybersecurity community at Dartmouth, via the Institute for Security, Technology, and Society, providing extended opportunities for learning and collaboration.

You must have finished your undergraduate degree in Computer Science or Computer Engineering, have strong skills in programming and computer systems, and some research experience. The best candidates will have some experience in IoT, smart homes, pervasive computing, mobile computing, embedded systems, machine learning, security, privacy, or some combination.

Dartmouth College is an Ivy League university with graduate programs in the sciences, engineering, medicine, and business. It is located in the beautiful town of Hanover NH, about two hours northwest of Boston. Hanover is the #1 college town in America! Dartmouth College is an equal opportunity employer, and I am especially interested in receiving applications from candidates with a broad range of backgrounds and experiences.
