WASP-funded Assistant Professor position at the Division of Security and Network Systems, Department of Electrical and Information Technology at Lund University.

The position is funded within the framework of a special initiative on cybersecurity from the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP). This means that, in addition to funding for the Assistant Lecturer position, full funding is provided for doctoral positions associated with the new position. The new Assistant Lecturer is expected to actively participate in the supervision of these doctoral students and, once docent competence is achieved, take on the main supervisory role. Additionally, funding is provided for two postdoctoral positions for two years each within the employment. The new Assistant Lecturer is expected to be responsible for developing profiles and recruiting for these two positions.

Subject description

The subject of the position encompasses methods and principles for protecting data in safety-critical applications, as well as protection against overload attacks and the maintenance of personal privacy. There are significant challenges in researching how machine learning can be used to attack traditional computer systems, but also to create new principles for protecting systems, making them more robust, and, not least, automating security architectures and protection systems. The subject includes the following sub-areas:

  • Principles for creating execution environments that are difficult to influence externally or that provide information about what is being processed through side channels or in other ways for parties without authorization to certain information.
  • Solutions for maintaining personal privacy and how data can be processed without leaking sensitive information about individual-related data.
  • Security for next-generation mobile networks, especially methods for managing security for analysis functions and resource allocation in mobile networks.
