Assistant professor position in Cyber Security at the Division of Information Coding at Linköping University.

About the position

This position aims for developing novel theories, methodologies, models, algorithms, and tools related to the security of networked intelligent systems (NIS). As an emerging and crucial sub-domain of cyber security, this subject area primarily encompasses research topics on reliable sensing, resilient inference, and safe autonomy. The focus is on

  • Research and development of methods and mathematical tools with the aim of better utilizing fusion of sensor data for more reliable sensing.
  • Creating lightweight attack-resilient state estimation and inference.
  • Unifying estimation, planning and control to yield secure execution even in the presence of deceptive orders, thus enabling safe autonomy.

This position is hosted at the Information Coding division, giving an opportunity to work together with security researchers there, and with the Sensor Fusion group in the neighboring Automatic Control division. You will be expected to interface with researchers from both groups, as well as the machine learning researchers in the Computer Vision division within the department, and with computer security researchers in the nearby Department of Computer Science (IDA).

The purpose of the employment is that you as an assistant professor is to be given the opportunity to develop independence as a researcher and to obtain both the research and teaching qualifications required for employment as associate professor. You will primarily be engaged in research and PhD supervision. Assuming a separate decision from WASP the position comes with financing for own salary and expenses for 5 years, plus salary and expenses for two postdocs (2+2 years) and for two PhD students (4+4 years). You are expected to build a new research group and engage in WASP’s graduate school, WASP national meetings and other activities.
