*** this position has been closed, and no new applications will be accepted. ***

We have an opening for a 1-2 year postdoctoral position at Duke University (in the Computer Science Department), starting in Fall 2018. We are looking for applicants who are interested in the field of database privacy. Applicants will have the opportunity to work on multiple projects funded by NSF and DARPA Brandeis including (but not limited to) (a) developing novel privacy notions that allow more useful data to be released than standard notions like differential privacy and studying their connections to learning, (b) building systems for rapid prototyping and experimentation of privacy algorithms, and (c) advancing the state of the art of differentially private query answering and machine learning in application areas like demographic and administrative records (e.g. from US Census Bureau), streaming data (e.g. from IoT sensors), medical records (e.g., from Duke Health) and images/video. Applicants will be required to have completed a Ph.D. in computer science, statistics or a related field. Prior experience in differentially private algorithm design is a plus.
