Dear all,

The Computational Privacy Group (http://cpg.doc.ic.ac.uk/), directed by Dr.
Yves-Alexandre de Montjoye, at Imperial College's Data Science Institute
has *funded openings for PhD students *to work on topics related to
*privacy*, *machine learning*, *re-identification/anonymization*
algorithms, *privacy-enhancing technologies*, and *ethics* *and* *fairness
in AI*.

For the first time in history, we have the ability to amass massive amounts
of data about humans and the societies in which we live. Data generated by
our technologies has the potential to fundamentally transform the way we
fight diseases, design transportation systems, and develop new drugs.
Improperly used, this data can lead to deep violations of our privacy and
large-scale discrimination. The goal of our work is to develop research and
technical solutions allowing data to be used for good in a
privacy-conscientious and fair manner.

We are looking for motivated students with a background in mathematics,
applied mathematics or computer science to tackle with us the challenges of
privacy in the Big Data era. The deadline to apply with the College is
9, 2018*. More details at https://cpg.doc.ic.ac.uk/PhDPositions.pdf.

Looking forward to meeting you,

Florimond Houssiau, PhD student at Imperial College
