Off-cycle Internship

Research & Development, Software EngineeringCambridge

Description

  • Security and privacy are among the most significant concerns for enterprises and consumers using public cloud platforms. Azure Research is conducting pioneering research in the design and analysis of systems that guarantee strong security and privacy properties to cloud users, and in novel applications that are enabled by emerging security and privacy technology.  

As part of our research, we are designing:  

  • new security primitives in general purpose processors and specialized accelerator hardware,  
  • languages and language runtimes that guarantee safety by construction,  
  • new services such as databases, blockchains, and machine learning platforms that utilize secure hardware and runtimes to guarantees strong security properties  
  • leakage analysis and mitigation techniques for privacy-preserving machine learning pipelines including the use of recent large language models. 

Requirements

  • Students enrolled in a PhD program or outstanding undergraduate/master’s students with research experience. 
  • One or two papers at top security conferences (e.g., USENIX, CCS, S&P, NDSS) or papers focusing on security, safety, or privacy and appearing at top machine learning (e.g., NeurIPS, ICML, ICLR), systems (e.g., ASPLOS, OSDI, SOSP) or programming language (e.g., PLDI, POPL, OOPSLA) venues is strongly desired. 
  • Letter of support from a supervisor and, optionally, from another senior collaborator.
