The University of Luxembourg seeks to hire outstanding researchers at its Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT).
SnT is a recently formed centre carrying out interdisciplinary research in secure, reliable and trustworthy ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) systems and services, often in collaboration with industrial, governmental or international partners. SnT is active in several international research projects funded by the EU 7th framework programme and the European Space Agency.
The complexity of policies is increasing from relatively simple access control models to more complex distributed and privacy aware policies. The project defines complex composite distributed access control policies, it develops tools, and it creates a prototype system to enforce distributed access control policies. It combines the complementary knowledge of the University of Leuven and the University of Luxembourg, with a postdoctoral researcher and a PhD student at each side. The PhD student in Luxemburg will focus on applications and methodology and the integration of various aspects of policies and explanations.
The successful candidate has:
- a master’s (or equivalent) degree in Computer Science, Mathematics
or a related field, with a strong interest in Security. Knowledge in
Logic is an advantage
- inquisitiveness, commitment, and a critical attitude
- very good written and oral English skills, a working knowledge in
German and/or French is an advantage.
The University offers a three year appointment (extension up to 4 years in total is possible). The University offers highly competitive salaries and is an equal opportunity employer. You will work in an exciting international environment and will have the opportunity to participate in the development of a newly created research centre.
Applications, written in English, must include the following sections:
1 – Curriculum Vitae (including your contact address, work experience, publications)
2 –Cover letter indicating the research area of interest and your motivation
3 – A research statement which addresses specifically the topic of the position (300 words)
