Multiple PhD Student and Postdoc Openings

Chenyang Lu
Fullgraf Professor, Washington University in St. Louis
Director, Cyber-Physical Systems Laboratory


We have multiple PhD and postdoc openings in the Cyber-Physical Systems Laboratory (CPSL), a world-class team working in the vibrant areas of Internet of Things, cyber-physical systems, cloud computing, and real-time and embedded systems.  In the recent Computer Science Rankings, we are the top-ranked department in the area of real-time and embedded systems.  To learn about examples of our recent research, check out this video about our work on real-time cloud.  The current research focuses on three thrusts: Real-Time Cloud Computing, Internet of Medical Things, and Industrial Internet of Things.

CPSL students are a brilliant bunch! Our graduates are placed at premier positions after graduation, including six professors at US universities, CTO of high-flying startups and Android kernel developers at Google, among others.
To learn about myself, read this article or watch this video from my professorship installation. For more information, check out my home page and the CPSL wiki.

If you aspire to be a world-class researcher, please feel free to email me and apply to the PhD program in Computer Science at Washington University!
