Graduate study in counter-surveillance research

Pursue a graduate degree (MS or PhD) in computer science at Oregon State University in Corvallis, OR starting in January 2018 or later. The area of research is broadly in counter-surveillance, studying application implementation, design, or deployment that would be of use to social movements and at-risk or marginalized individuals and communities. We will focus on technological approaches to mitigating social harms done by selective surveillance, that is surveillance that focuses on specific groups of people, rather than mass surveillance.

Project specifics will be matched to the background and interest of the student. As long as satisfactory progress is being made toward the completion of your degree, you will receive a teaching or research assistantship of at least $2,000 per month for the nine month academic year as well as a tuition waiver. The project would be under the guidance of Professor Glencora Borradaile.

While applicants need not have an undergraduate degree in computer science, they must be able to earn, within a year of commencing graduate study, at least a B grade (or equivalent) in: Theory of Computation; Analysis of Algorithms; Operating Systems or Computer Architecture; Translators or Programming Languages.

To apply, submit these application materials and email to indicate your interest in this particular project.
