martes, 26 mayo 2020

This is a fixed term position (4 years) in the Cybersecurity research group (www.cybersecurityresearch.at ) at AAU Klagenfurt in Austria.

The group was established by Prof. Elisabeth Oswald after her move from Bristol University to Austria. The group's core expertise is in applied aspects of cryptography that deal with the detection and exploitation of information leakage. The group wants to expand towards data intensive aspects of cybersecurity more generally and therefore seeks to appoint somebody with a a background in statistics/data science/AI who has an interest in cybersecurity applications for their research.

The successful applicant is expected to do a small amount of teaching (4 contact/lecture hours per week during term time, subject specific only, i.e. no service teaching) whilst contributing to the wider research agenda of the Cybersecurity group.
The minimum monthly gross salary for this position amounts to € 3.889,50 (14 times per year) and can increase to € 4.309,30 maximum in the case of consideration of previous occupational experience. The four-year fixed-term employment contract is expected to commence in August 2020 (but this is negotiable).
