Graduate Research Openings

There are multiple openings for graduate students in my group. I encourage prospective students with an interest in security and privacy to apply to the EE graduate program at Princeton. If you have already been admitted to Princeton, please send me a mail and I'd be happy to chat further.

Undergraduate Research Openings

I have openings for Princeton undergraduates to participate in research projects and gain experience. Please send me a mail, and we can discuss further. (Note that I expect undergraduate researchers to be self motivated and treat research as a commitment similar to taking a class.)

Postdoctoral Research Openings

The Department of Electrical Engineering has an opening for a postdoctoral researcher with interest in researching censorship-resilient systems, working with me and Prof. Mung Chiang. We are interested in researchers with strengths in communication networks, distributed systems, social networks, security and privacy; prior experience in anti-censorship technologies is a plus but not required. We are particularly interested in researchers who are interested in "bridging the gap" between theory and practice by exploring fundamental underpinnings to build real systems with strong properties.

Appointments will be for one year with the possibility of renewal pending satisfactory performance and funding availability. Applicants should have a Ph.D. (or be close to obtaining one) at the time of the appointment in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science or related areas. Princeton University is an equal opportunity employer and complies with applicable EEO and affirmative action regulations.

Applications must be submitted online at to job requisition #1300771. Please include a CV, statement of research and contact information for three references.
