CMU Undergraduate and Masters Students
The CyLab Usable Privacy and Security (CUPS) Laboratory is looking
for students to work on research projects with us
(for credit or pay). We have current projects related to privacy,
phishing, and user-configurable privacy and security. We're
particularly interested in students who have strong java or java
script programming skills as well as students with experience
conducting user studies. For more information about the CUPS lab see
http://cups.cs.cmu.edu/ Interested students should send their
resumes to Professor Lorrie Cranor.
Several masters and undergraduate students who have taken CUPS-related courses have subsequently worked on research projects in the
CUPS lab. If you are interested in working on a research project with
a CUPS-affiliated faculty member, you should first sign-up for a
course in privacy, secure systems, or human-computer interaction
(preferably taught by one of the CUPS-affiliated faculty members). You
might also want to sign up for our mailing list and come to some of
our events to learn more about the research projects we are working
on. Undergraduate and masters students can work on research projects
for independent study or thesis credit. We sometimes have paid
positions available as well.
CMU Current and Incoming PhD Students
The CUPS doctoral training program is supported through an NSF
IGERT grant. Thanks to this support, we are able to offer PhD
fellowships to U.S. citizens and permanent residents to participate in
the CUPS doctoral training program.
As we get more funding for CUPS-related projects, we expect to take
on additional PhD students. Current and admitted CMU PhD students who
are interested in working on CUPS-related projects should contact Lorrie Cranor or one of the
other CUPS-affiliated faculty members.
Prospective CMU PhD Students
CUPS members currently include PhD students from the Computation, Organizations and Society and
Engineering and Public Policy
programs. We will also consider students from the Human
Computer Interaction, Computer
Science, Heinz, or
other CMU PhD programs. Please apply directly to one of these PhD
programs, but mention your interest in CUPS in your personal
Perspective CMU Postdocs and Research Programmers
As funding becomes available, we expect to hire one or more
postdocs or research programmers to work in the CUPS lab. Please send a resume along
with a cover letter describing your interests to Lorrie Cranor.
We currently have an opening for a
