Pittsburgh, PA 

The Information Networking Institute at Carnegie Mellon University is seeking an adjunct instructor to teach the following course in the spring 2020 semester: 14-735: Secure Coding. The course focuses on common software implementation defects and vulnerabilities, and many of the activities in the course take the form of capture-the-flag (CTF) activities. Suitable candidates will have significant background and experience with computer security, software security, and CTF exercises as well as previous teaching and project mentoring experience. We are seeking candidates based in either Pittsburgh, PA, and Mountain View, CA, as the course is broadcast between classrooms in these two locations.

This course will enable students to understand how software coding defects lead to software vulnerabilities, develop secure software, and manage teams that develop secure software. This course provides a detailed explanation of common programming errors in C and C++ and describes how these errors can lead to code that is vulnerable to exploitation. The course covers secure software development tools and processes while focusing on low-level technical security issues intrinsic to the C and C++ programming languages and associated libraries.
