Description:

The Cyber Security & Privacy lab (CSP-laboratory) of Prof. Christina Pöpper, part of the Center for Cyber Security at New York University Abu Dhabi, seeks to recruit a postdoctoral researcher to work on the seminal topic of 5G Security: security & privacy in and for current and future mobile/cellular networks, including nextG systems.  Although a postdoctoral candidate will be preferred, this position may also be filled by a research engineer or research assistant in well justified cases.

The successful applicant will drive a fascinating project on the topic of security and privacy in 5G and next generation wireless/cellular networks.  Our research group has recently made and contributed to important security investigations and offensive work on the specification, implementation, and deployment side of cellular networks. This includes the identification of substantial security weaknesses and vulnerabilities in 4G and 5G networks with a focus on the traffic between user equipment and base stations on multiple layers of the protocol stack. The successful applicant is expected to build upon previous work and extend it in novel directions, e.g., focusing on location privacy aspects, the defensive side, or other aspects in the overall 5G/nextG ecosystem, which may include but are not limited to physical-layer communication, rich communication services, signaling communication, authentication, end-to-end encryption etc. Conceptual and practical work on the topic is expected to be made. Research methodologies will include experimental work with existing 5G equipment in our lab; additional expertise in formal methods, NLP and/or ML/AI will be beneficial. The candidate will work in an international and diverse environment consisting of PhD-level scientists, graduate students and undergraduate students. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to join an ongoing collaborative project with Google on the topic of 5G security.

Applicants for the postdoctoral position must have a PhD in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Cyber Security or closely related fields. Excellent experimental skills relevant to the project are required.

The terms of employment are very competitive and include housing and educational subsidies for children. Applications will be accepted immediately and candidates will be considered until the position is filled. For consideration, applicants need to submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae with full publication list, degree transcript, statement of research interests, and at least one letter of reference (up to two may be required in the application process), all in PDF format. If you have any questions, please email Prof. Christina Pöpper at [email protected]

Organization

NYU's agreement with the Emirate of Abu Dhabi to create NYU Abu Dhabi is the outcome of a shared understanding of the essential roles and challenges of higher education in the 21st century: a common belief in the value of a liberal arts education, concurrence on the benefits a research university brings to the society that sustains it, a conviction that interaction with new ideas and people who are different is valuable and necessary, and a commitment to educating students who are true citizens of the world. As the first comprehensive liberal arts and science campus in the Middle East to be operated abroad by a major American research university, NYU Abu Dhabi has been built on the following principles:

  • NYU Abu Dhabi is a research university with a fully integrated liberal arts and science college. It draws students from around the world, and prepares them for the challenges and opportunities of our interconnected world.
  • NYU Abu Dhabi equips students for leadership in all arenas of human endeavor. It fosters curiosity, creativity, and critical reflection. At NYUAD, students extend themselves and the frontiers of knowledge.
  • The residential life of students is central to the University's academic mission. Learning takes place across the campus, not only in classrooms, but also in residential houses, through participation in clubs and sports, during informal campus gatherings, and being engaged with the wider community.
  • NYU Abu Dhabi stimulates advanced research. The NYUAD Institute is a major research center. Research is integral to the undergraduate experience at NYU Abu Dhabi, and it will also drive the University's graduate programs.
  • NYU Abu Dhabi and NYU New York form the backbone of a fully connected global network university. As one of the two major hubs in the global network, NYUAD creates a unique capacity for faculty and students to access the assets of the entire university system.
  • NYU Abu Dhabi advances the city of Abu Dhabi as a magnetic center of ideas and human talent.
