Undergraduate Researcher in Serverless Computing - Computer Science


We are looking for several undergraduate researchers to work on researching the security aspects of serverless computing. Serverless computing is a new computing paradigm in Cloud Computing where users can specify functions (e.g. AWS Lambdas) to run in the cloud, and the cloud providers manage the instantiation of the functions and resources that enable them to scale. Students will work with a team of mentors consisting of faculty in the Cybersecurity & Privacy Cluster and PhD students in the cluster. Students may be provided with desk space in a lab and a workstation (subject to availability).
