As such, the postdoc would join an inter-disciplinary team working on multiple funded projects, primarily Amulet with some involvement in the Trustworthy Health & Wellness (THaW) project. The team collaborates with colleagues in the engineering and medical schools, and with several other universities.

The candidate must have finished his or her Ph.D in Computer Science or Computer Engineering, have deep experience with mobile/ubiquitous computing, security, or privacy, have experience planning and conducting experimental computer systems research, and be an excellent programmer. Ideal candidates will also have experience with embedded computing, sensor networks, machine learning, Android programming, student mentoring, or project management.

Dartmouth College is an Ivy League university with graduate programs in the sciences, engineering, medicine, and business. It is located in the beautiful town of Hanover NH, about two hours northwest of Boston. Hanover is the #1 college town in America! Dartmouth College is an equal opportunity employer.

Interested candidates may apply on Interfolio, supplying their vita and a cover letter indicating how their background might fit with our projects, notably the Amulet project.
