Hiring Research Assistants and PhD students

We’re happy to announce that we have several open positions!

Privacy & machine learning

Emiliano De Cristofaro has at least one post-doc position in privacy and machine learning. The researcher will work with him and others in UCL’s InfoSec group. For a sample of our recent work in the field, please see Emiliano’s publications on this topic.

Please email jobs@emilianodc.com with questions or apply directly before 25 July 2019.

Note that we would be keen to hear from both PhD students looking for part-time research work, as well as people looking for longer-term full-time post-doctoral positions.

Web measurements

Multiple positions are available in the context of a project based at the Alan Turing Institute on cyberbullying and cyberhate, led by Emiliano De Cristofaro and Gareth Tyson. The project will primarily focus on measurements research, i.e., gathering and analysing various types of social datasets.

For a sample of our recent work in this space, please see Emiliano’s publications on this topic.

Again, we would be keen to hear from both PhD students looking for part-time research work, as well as people looking for longer-term full-time post-doctoral positions.

Please email edecristofaro@turing.ac.uk if you have questions.

PhD positions with Philipp Jovanovic

Members of the InfoSec group are always looking for talented PhD students to join their team. If you would like to investigate opportunities, please do check their website for details of their research interests and contact instructions. We are particularly happy to announce that Philipp Jovanovic will join our group as an Associate Professor starting in January 2020, and he is inviting applications for PhD students.

Philipp’s research interests broadly cover applied cryptography, privacy, and decentralised systems. His current work focuses on building scalable, privacy-preserving, decentralised protocols (such as ByzCoin, RandHound, OmniLedger, or Calypso). He has also worked on a wide variety of other security-related topics in the past, including design and analysis of symmetric cryptographic primitives, side-channel attacks and countermeasures, and the security analysis of systems deployed in the real world such as the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol or the Open Smart Grid Protocol (OSGP).

For an overview of his work, please visit Philipp’s website.

If you’re interested in working with Philipp as a PhD student, please email philipp@jovanovic.io.

New CDT in cybersecurity

We have several PhD positions funded through the new Centre for Doctoral Training in Cybersecurity (CDT). Please see the article about the CDT for more details and instructions to apply.
