Our lab is still under construction. We officially plan to start in the fall of 2023 but are already accepting applications.
Are you interested in joining the lab? That's awesome! We are always looking for new collaborators.
We are looking for people that are passionate about and motivated to contribute towards our goal of making computer privacy and security easier for everyone. A technical background (e.g., statistics or programming) is a plus but not a requirement. We reward creativity and integrity, are determined to conduct research that is impactful and helpful and care about inclusion and ethics in our research. We maintain a trustworthy, inclusive, and safe space and are looking for new colleagues motivated to contribute and interested in making new friends. Good English skills (knowledge of German is not required) and a bachelor's/master's degree in Computer Science or related fields like Psychology (those may require additional courses) are required.
Our team tackles important privacy and security challenges by applying their background in Computer Science and Psychology. Most of our work focuses on the intersection between human behavior and technical security, including computer security, privacy, and human-computer interaction (HCI). We are particularly interested in end-user behavior with a strong focus on user authentication and privacy controls. We mainly use empirical methods, either quantitatively or qualitatively, and usually conduct highly interdisciplinary work. This often includes online and in-lab studies with prototypes, surveys, and interviews.Learn More
