New PhD Openings

Center for Mobile Computing (CMC)

Dartmouth College Computer Science

The Center for Mobile Computing, Dartmouth College, is growing and has several openings for PhD students in Computer Science starting September 2006 in the following projects:

  • MAP: a new DHS HSARPA project; with our industrial partner, Aruba Networks, we address existing and future attacks on WiFi networks based on security through measurement;
  • CRAWDAD: a new NSF project developing a community-wide archive to store wireless trace data, and new tools for collecting, anonymizing, and analyzing that data;
  • Dragonfly: a new NSF project developing a wireless MAC and higher-level services for open spectrum radio networks;
  • Digital Living: a new project funded by Dartmouth's Institute for Security Technology Studies (ISTS) to investigate privacy in location-aware computing environments based on campus area integrated sensor and WiFi technologies;
  • Armstrong: an on-going ARO and industrial funded project on the development of resilient, high-throughput protocols and applications for wireless sensor networks; and
  • Greenpass: a Cisco- and Intel-funded project using wireless and mobile technology to enable authorization in computer systems to flow in the same decentralized, dynamic way it does in the human world.

How to apply: We have PhD opening in each of these projects for highly motivated individuals that really want to make a difference in wireless systems research. Successful candidates will have a Bachelor's or Master's in Computer Science or Engineering and have strong skills in programming, operating systems, computer network protocols, and performance analysis. Send an email describing your background and interests to cmc-openings AT by 12/12/05; be sure to formally apply to the Ph.D program by February 1, 2006. Explore this site for more information about CMC projects.

The team: Successful candidates with be Graduate Research Assistants in Computer Science and will be advised by Professors Andrew T. Campbell, Tristan Henderson, David Kotz, and Sean Smith, who lead systems and security research about wireless networks at Dartmouth.

About Dartmouth College: Dartmouth is the ninth-oldest college in the U.S. and a member of the Ivy League. It is a private, four-year, coeducational undergraduate college with a number of leading professional graduate schools, and graduate programs in the arts and sciences. Dartmouth is located in the beautiful college town of Hanover, New Hampshire, and lies along the eastern bank of the Connecticut River, between the Green Mountains of Vermont and the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Hanover preserves the traditional New England small-town qualities with access to outstanding outdoor life and activities such as hiking, canoeing, and skiing. At the same time, Dartmouth has a thriving arts center and is close to major cities such as Boston and Montreal. It is a great place to live and do research. Come join us!
