Secure Software Systems Laboratory
Department of Computer Science
The Purdue University S3 Laboratory invites applications for Doctoral
Student and Post-doctoral Fellow positions. The S3 Lab was created in
to foster systems and programming language research. It is run
Patrick Eugster, Tony Hosking, Suresh Jagannathan, and Jan Vitek. We
investigate the application of static and dynamic program analyses to
object-oriented, functional, and real-time programs for the purposes of
optimization and validation of correctness and security properties.
develop open source software in the areas of mobile and untrusted
computation, embedded systems, concurrent and distributed systems, and
persistent programming. Our active research directions include
software transactions, intrusion detection, ownership types, real-time
Java, aspect-oriented programming, semantics of concurrency control,
and static program analysis.
Our work has current funding from the National Science Foundation,
Microsoft Research, Cisco, NEC, and Intel. The lab has close ties with
industrial research labs at Motorola, Sun, IBM and Intel. We have a long
history of placing students at those labs. We also collaborate with
researchers across the US, Europe, and Asia.
Applicants are expected to take part in the research and social life
lab, interact with students and work closely with faculty. Presently,
lab has 12 graduate students, two Post-docs, and several
expect to hire up to four new graduate students and two additional
post-docs. For post-doctoral positions a PhD in Computer Science is
required, for doctoral students research experience is desirable.
