Post-doc (2 posts, up to 4 years)
University of Warwick, UK

We have two post-docs posts (Research Fellow and Senior Research Fellow, each for up to 4 years) available in the Department of Computer Science, University of Warwick, as part of a 4-year EPSRC project on "End to End Authentication of Caller ID in Heterogeneous Telephony Systems", working with Professor Feng Hao (PI) and Dr Adrian Von Mühlenen (co-I). The primary aim of this project is to improve security in telecommunication systems, in particular, providing reliable authentication of the caller ID without requiring any PKI, and protecting end-to-end privacy of the call contents.

The candidates will join a dynamic and growing team of security researchers in the Department of Computer Science, University of Warwick. Warwick Computer Science is ranked 1st in research output, 2nd in research impact, and 2nd overall among all computer science departments in the UK based on REF 2014. The candidates will have the flexibility to collaborate with other members in the security team on a wider range of topics, such as key exchange, e-voting, e-auction, PUF, cryptocurrency, mobile security, IoT, web security and e-payment security. Our work has been largely driven by tackling real-world security problems. Candidates who have a strong interest in working on real-world problems for practical impacts are encouraged to apply. Those who have industrial experiences are also most welcome to apply.
