PhD position in Secure and Private Machine Learning and Decision Making
at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Chalmers
University of Technology

Application deadline: November 21, 2014

Expected starting date of position: January 2015

Job description

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Chalmers
University of Technology invites applications for a PhD position in
Secure and Private Machine Learning and Decision Making. We are
looking for an excellent, motivated, self-driven doctoral student to
work in the area of machine learning and decision theory with a focus
on security and privacy. The position is for five years at the
Department of Computer Science and Engineering, within the division of
Computing Science and the group of Algorithms, Learning and
Computational Biology (http://www.cse.chalmers.se/research/lab/), who
are doing research on fields ranging from machine learning,
statistics, algorithms, optimisation, reinforcement learning to
computational biology, text and massive data analysis.

The student will be expected to develop and analyse state-of-the-art
algorithms for distributed machine learning and decision making that
provide users with strong privacy guarantees.  In particular, the
research will be focused on machine learning and differential privacy
for distributed systems, but some aspects of the work will involve
recent advances in cryptography. The student will be supervised by Dr.
Christos Dimitrakakis (Machine learning, decision theory and
differential privacy – see http://www.cse.chalmers.se/~chrdimi/ ) and
co-supervised by Dr. Katerina Mitrokotsa (Cryptography and security –
see http://www.cse.chalmers.se/~aikmitr/ ).

Employment will be in the scope of the Swiss Sense Synergy project,
whose aim is to develop intelligent location-based networking protocols
and crowdsourcing applications, in collaboration with three swiss
universities. Further info about the Swiss Sense Synergy project can be
found here http://goo.gl/tmQ9NJ

Details about Employment

PhD student positions are limited to five years and normally include
20 per cent departmental work, mostly teaching duties.  Salary for the
position is as specified in Chalmers’ general agreement for PhD
student positions.  Currently the starting salary is 26,250SEK a month
before tax.  The positions are intended to start in January 2015.
