Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Reader in Cyber Security (2 posts)

Due to expansion through internal and external funding, the Security and Privacy group in the School of Computer Science is seeking to appoint two new posts. The post holders will be expected to contribute to a thriving research community in cyber security, and computer science more broadly, as well as teaching on our dedicated cyber security courses. The desired area of expertise is open but we are particularly interested in those specialising in systems security or the intersection of security with artificial intelligence or human-computer interaction.

The Security and Privacy group currently consists of eleven academic staff researching all aspects of cyber security and privacy. We are recognised by EPSRC and NCSC as an Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security Research and have a GCHQ-certified MSc in Cyber Security. Current areas of expertise within the group include: designing secure systems, formal analysis of systems, applied cryptography, automotive security, electronic voting, security testing, and developing attack methods and defences. The research ethos of the group is to tackle problems that are important to society, government and industry.

The post holders will be expected to contribute to the whole range of research, teaching and administration.

Please indicate the post applied for in your application.

Closing date: 25 February.
