We are seeking two Postdoctoral Research fellows to work on privacy-preserving data management and mining, in the context of a project funded by Leverhulme Trust, in the Department of Informatics at King’s College London. The positions are full time and available for 2 years with immediate start by 20th January 2021.
The Postdoctoral Research fellows will work with Dr Grigorios Loukides and be involved in one or more of the following focus areas:
1. Design of algorithms for privacy-preserving collection and analysis of individuals’ sequential data. The algorithms are expected to utilise rigorous privacy principles, such as differential privacy, and to be applied in settings where data are being updated.
2. Engineering of algorithms to improve their time and space efficiency. This could involve the development of novel indexing data structures and/or data representations for uncertain data.
3. Implementation and evaluation of private algorithms for release and analysis of real-world datasets. This will also involve collection of data from online sources, identification of suitable public datasets, and the application of data mining / machine learning methods on the original and private data.
To be successful you will need demonstrated knowledge and skills in one of the following area: data privacy, design and analysis of algorithms, data mining / machine learning.
