Your task as a PhD student will be to conduct world-class research in cyber-physical security as part of the WASP research program. The project is about the first encounter problem, which is how to ensure that two entities that have previously not interacted with each other can trust each other’s information. This is both a deep and relevant problem in today’s connected society. Addressing this problem requires new solutions for decentralized trust management where techniques such as remote attestation and blockchains can be used.
Excellent communication in English, both verbally and written, is a requirement.
Have Master Degree
You have graduated at Master’s level in of computer science or computer engineering, software/information technology or completed courses with a minimum of 240 credits, at least 60 of which must be in advanced courses in the relevant area indicated above. Alternatively, you have gained essentially corresponding knowledge in another way.
As a doctoral student, you devote most of your time to doctoral studies and the research projects of which you are part. Your work may also include teaching or other departmental duties, up to a maximum of 20% of full-time.
The work of a PhD student is driven by curiosity, passion for innovation and creativity, and ability to work independently.
A candidate for this position is expected to have completed courses in computer science and mathematics with excellent grades. In addition to course transcripts, the candidate should be able to demonstrate software development skills (e.g., through a programming portfolio), as well as mathematical proficiency (e.g., through course work).
The salary of doctoral students is determined according to a locally negotiated salary progression. The current starting salary (from 1 October 2020) at the department of computer and information science is 30 250 SEK per month.
