PhD student position in the WASP NEST project ShiftLeft, based at Chalmers University of Technology.

About the position

Software is often the root cause of vulnerabilities in modern computing systems. By focusing on securing the software, we target principled security mechanisms that provide robust protection against large classes of attacks.  Modern software applications are almost never built from scratch but reuse a significant amount of code that has been built by 3rd parties. These code artifacts, in the form of externally developed libraries, packages and frameworks form the core of their so-called software supply chain.  The goal of ShiftLeft is to contribute to a new paradigm shift for securing software supply chains. As a PhD student in the project, you will be able to focus on problems which fit your talents and interests, ranging from developing the theoretical foundations of classes of vulnerabilities and defences, developing state-of-the-art static analysis tools, or conducting large scale analyses of the emergence of vulnerabilities in the software supply chain. The successful applicant will be encouraged to collaborate with PhD students and postdocs working on related topics and have opportunities for collaboration with Cparta Cyber Defense, Debricked, Ericsson, Recorded Future, and SEB.
