PhD position in information security

The Center for Information Security and Trust (CISAT) at the Computer Science Department of the IT University of Copenhagen invites highly motivated individuals to apply for a PhD position starting in January 2021 for a duration of 3 years.

The position is in the context of the project “Youth community for cybersecurity” (Unge-community for cybersikkerhed), which aims at educating and building a community around cybersecurity for students aged 15-25.

Part of the candidate’s responsibilities will be to take part in promoting events and prepare educational material on societal aspects of cybersecurity. Within the framework of the project, the goal of the PhD will be for example to explore protocols that support usable security, such as resilient, verifiable, and accountable systems; i.e. systems that recover from successful attacks, that alert the users about potential compromises and that can assign blame when attacks happen.

The ideal candidate will have strong interest in education and research, and a M.Sc. degree with interest or expertise in one or more of the following topics: cryptography and security protocols, usability, and formal verification.

Application

  • A cover letter;

  • Curriculum Vitae, which must include two professional/academic references;
  • Applications may also include a relevant scientific publication written by the applicant, or the applicants master thesis. Letters of recommendation can also be included in the application.
