Postdoc position in the field of Computer Science with a focus on cybersecurity, privacy, or performance aspects of distributed systems and/or related areas, based at Linköping University.

Work assignments

The position is funded by the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP) and is part of a joint project between Linköping University (LiU) and the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore. The PI at LiU is Niklas Carlsson (Senior Associate Professor) and the co-PI at NTU is Jun Zhao (Assistant Professor).

The project builds on a new collaboration between LiU and NTU, in the area of security, privacy, and scalability of distributed systems. The ideal candidate would work in an area of interest to both PIs (see PIs individual research topics) and with interest to apply a significant effort to study security-, privacy-, scalability-, and applications-related aspects of blockchain technologies and other recent/emerging related technologies.

As a postdoc within this three-year project, you are expected to conduct high-quality research and help drive the joint research project from the LiU-side. However, to strengthen the collaboration with NTU, you are also expected to go for some research visits to NTU and help spearhead some of our joint efforts.

As postdoc, you will principally carry out research. A certain amount of teaching may be part of your duties, up to a maximum of 20% of working hours.

More information on the position and research project can be obtained from the contact persons.
