Graduate and Postdoc Research Opportunities

A core component of the Software Analysis and Compilation Research Lab is mentoring PhD students through learning the research process, so they can grow to become successful research leaders in computer science. We also welcome visiting scholars, postdocs and master's students interested in getting involved in the Software Analysis and Compilation Research Lab's research projects.

There are several different ways to get involved as a graduate student. The preferable way to get started is to spend a semester or summer in the lab completing an independent study (CISC 868 Research) course for 3 credits. Depending on how the semester project goes, you could get more deeply involved in the same project, or a related (possibly newly created) project as a more permanent member of the lab.

There are often possibilities to be funded as a research assistant on different projects in the lab. The faculty research investigators use several criteria for selecting research assistants:

  • strong performance in graduate courses related to the research area
  • demonstrated independent problem solver in independent study or course by the faculty investigator
  • strong work ethic
  • demonstrated interest in the research area/project
