WASP-funded Assistant Professor position at the Department of Computing Science at Umeå University.


Your duties as Assistant Professor mainly include research and teaching, but may also include tasks in administration, academic leadership, and industry collaboration. For the first 5 years, you are guaranteed 80% research time and 20% for teaching and administration; year six will be 75% research and 25% teaching and administration. After this 6-year period, and given a successful promotion, the distribution between research and teaching may change over time depending on needs and available resources.

Your research is set in the area of security and privacy by design, with a focus on developing realistic software and efficient methodologies to build usable systems with non-intrusive, robust and efficient built-in mechanisms. The selected candidate will be responsible for creating a new group at the department. It is also expected that the candidate will establish synergies with existing research groups in the department, in particular with the Software Engineering and Security (SES) and PrivAcy-AWare traNSparent deCIsions (NAUSICA) groups.

In teaching, you will mostly develop and give courses in the areas software engineering and cybersecurity, together with other teachers. You may also supervise thesis work. Teaching in courses on basic level may also occur.
