Postdoctoral research position

Job ad: Software transformation and reasoning

I’m looking for a postdoc to develop techniques and LLVM-based tools for software transformation and security monitoring. Building on previous LLVM-based work as well as DTrace on FreeBSD, we’re working to detect adversaries as they attack networked systems, but without relying on stochastic intrusion detection. This position would be part of an international team working out of Memorial, BAE Systems and the University of Cambridge as part of DARPA’s Transparent Computing program.
