2 PhD positions are available at the AtlanTTic Research Center (https://atlanttic.uvigo.es/en/) from the Universidade de Vigo. The positions are available to start at the end of 2022, covering a duration of 3-4 years, and including travel budget for attendance to conference and summer schools.
The workplace is in the city of Vigo, being ranked by OCU as the Spanish city with the highest life quality (https://www.idealista.com/en/news/lifestyle-in-spain/2021/06/02/13426-quality-of-life-in-spain-spanish-cities-with-the-best-and-worst-quality-of-life).
Both positions are funded by TRUMPET, which is an European project whose aim is to research and develop novel privacy enhancement methods for Federated Learning, and to deliver a scalable Federated AI service platform for the analysis of cross-border European datasets. The privacy guarantees of the platform will be validated for the scenario of cancer data coming from different European hospitals.
PhD candidates will contribute to two different central aspects: (1) research and implementation of secure methods for machine learning, and (2) measure the existing privacy leakage in federated learning scenarios.
