PhD student position in usable privacy and security at Chalmers University of Technology (WASP NEST CyberSecIT)
The PhD student will join a high-profile group of researchers on cybersecurity and privacy, the Chalmers Security Lab. The project work will be interdisciplinary and focus on usable privacy and security (Usable privacy-enhancing permission management) in close cooperation with researchers from other Swedish Universities and from industry.
The PhD student will join our ambitious project WASP NEST CyberSecIT, a framework project conducted jointly with KTH and Umeå University to explore the security and privacy of IoT applications, with the emphasis on software. NESTs are flagship projects of the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP). The PhD student will thus enjoy the benefits of the WASP graduate school.
The PhD student will be supervised by Prof. Simone Fischer-Hübner (recipient of a number of awards by EU H2020, SSF, Google). The PhD student positions are limited to five years and normally include 20 per cent departmental work, mostly teaching duties.
