Postdoctoral research position

Good evening,

I'm told that LLVM job ads are on-topic for this list; I hope this post will be relevant to academic researchers in the LLVM community.

I'm looking for a postdoc to develop techniques and LLVM-based tools for software transformation and security monitoring. Building on previous LLVM-based work (Department of Computer Science and Technology: Temporally Enhanced Security Logic Assertions (TESLA)) as well as DTrace on FreeBSD, we're working to detect adversaries as they attack networked systems, but without relying on stochastic intrusion detection. The project is a collaboration among BAE Systems, Memorial University and the University of Cambridge as part of DARPA's Transparent Computing program; this position is located at Memorial University in St. John's, Newfoundland.

The particulars are posted at, and if you or anyone you know might be interested in such a position, I'd love to hear from you. The application deadline is 15 November, and I'd be very happy to answer any questions you might have between now and then.

Thank you,

Jonathan Anderson
