Job Description

Internet of Things devices, critical infrastructure, and sensor and communication systems all have one thing in common: they interface the digital and physical domains. The Cyber-Physical Systems Group conducts research to understand the cybersecurity implications of these physical interfaces and use the results of our research to develop prototypes that serve as pathfinders for future technological solutions.

We seek a hardware security summer researcher interested in investigating issues related to microelectronics security attacks and defenses. The successful candidate will be joining a multi-disciplinary team analyzing and prototyping capabilities to defend national security electronics from malicious modification / tamper. The scope of hardware security research and development activities within the group include developing and accessing novel hardware design analysis techniques, advanced circuit obfuscation techniques, emulating hardware-vectored cyber attacks, and other exciting activities.


* Active participation in an accredited bachelor, master, or PhD degree program in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or another related field.
* Experience working with a high-level programming language such as Python or C/C++, as well as experience working within a Linux environment.
* Experience with hardware digital design with languages such as VHDL, Verilog, or Chisel and familiarity with digital logic workflows for either field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) or application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs).
* Familiarity with open-source hardware design frameworks such as RISC-V, OR1K, or related.
* A familiarity with cybersecurity problems and the role of hardware in enforcing security properties of cyber systems.
* Demonstrated capability in presenting ideas written and orally within a cross-functional environment.

Selected candidate will be subject to a pre-employment background investigation and must be able to obtain and maintain a Secret level DoD security clearance.
