Further details and instructions for applying are at
Salary range: ˇĚ39324 to ˇĚ46924
Closing date: Friday 2nd December, 2016
The Department of Computer Science embodies the ethos of "applying theory
into practice" across its research and teaching activities. Its research
activities are focused into two research groups: Secure Systems, and
Nature Inspired Computing and Engineering (NICE). Surrey is recognised as
an Academic Centre of Excellence for Cyber Security Research by GCHQ.
Surrey has made substantial investment in the Secure Systems group, which
comprises eleven members. Both posts are part of a strategic drive to
strengthen and integrate our core safety and security activities within
the Secure Systems group. One of the posts will aim to complement the
recent appointment of Professor Liqun Chen.
This is an exciting opportunity in a department that is growing its
reputation for delivering quality interdisciplinary and applied research
based on strong fundamental principles.
Applicants should have a PhD in a relevant subject or equivalent
professional experience. An ability to produce high quality outputs is
also required. The appointed candidates will be expected to contribute to
all aspects of the Department©ös activities. We aim to attract outstanding
candidates with strong visions for research, combined with a growing
international research profile, a passion for teaching, and who value
collaborative research and working in a team.
We aim to attract candidates that will conduct research in areas such as
trusted computing, safety verification, security verification, data
privacy, cyber-physical and internet of things security, cloud or mobile
security, machine learning and data analytics applied to security, human
aspects of cyber security, formal methods and applied cryptography. We are
seeking individuals that can contribute to fundamental research and turn
it into practice. We welcome applications from candidates whose research
areas complement the existing research of the group.
We are looking for individuals that can inspire students through their
curiosity for leading-edge aspects of technology. In particular, the
teaching duties of the role include: delivering high quality teaching to
all levels of students, supervising undergraduate project students and
postgraduate dissertations and contributing to the teaching of security
and other practical areas of Computer Science, such as computer
networking, network security, web-based architectures and concurrency.
These are full-time and permanent positions. The posts are available from
January 2017 but there is flexibility in the start date. The University is
located close to the Surrey Research Park in Guildford and within easy
commuting distance of London.
