The department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of Arizona has multiple Ph.D. positions starting from Spring or Fall 2016. Application deadline is flexible but the sooner the better. |
The successful candidates are expected to work on one of the following exciting research areas: (1) Wireless networking and security, including cross-layer optimization, physical-layer security, and spectrum enforcement; (2) Security & privacy for the cloud and big data, especially privacy-preserving data analytics (e.g., for social or location-based applications); (3) Security in cyber physical systems, such as autonomous vehicle systems, and internet-of-things.
Preferred candidates should be self-motivated, responsible, and have the curiosity and determination to explore the path to develop himself/herself into an outstanding researcher. Candidates with EE, CS or other relevant backgrounds will be considered, and an earned Master degree is preferred. A solid background in either one of the following will be a plus: wireless communications & networking, signal processing, security/cryptography, machine learning, optimization/game theory, or strong system implementation skills. Previous research experience is a plus but not necessary.
If you are interested, please send your CV/resume, transcripts, GRE and TOEFL scores, and any other information that you believe is helpful for your application in one email to Prof. Ming Li at email@example.com.
