CUPS - CMU Usable Privacy and Security Laboratory - Carnegie Mellon University, 5000 Forbes Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15213

Developer for Usable Security Data Gathering Infrastructure

The CUPS (CyLab Usable Privacy and Security) lab is looking for a CMU student to help design and develop software modules for use by our group in a multi-year field research study. The student will be primarily responsible for developing independent sensors that collect specific data about our participants' computers or computing behavior. The student may also contribute to improving, testing, and maintaining the general software architecture that manages the sensors, data transfers, participant/study management, and possibly data compilation and analysis. The ideal candidate should have a very strong programming ability to create reliably robust production-ready software (in Java, preferably), have significant experience and knowledge in developing for the Windows 7 operating system architecture. The position may be part-time or full-time and starts as soon as possible until the end of the Fall 2013 academic term, with a possible extension into 2014.
