The Center for Advanced Security Research Darmstadt (CASED) at the Technische Universitšt Darmstadt has openings for its PhD scholarship program in the areas of IT Security starting immediately.
CASED hosts a 3 year doctoral program for outstanding students holding a Master\\\'s degree (or German Diploma or equivalent) in Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, Electrical Engineering, Economics, Industrial Engineering, Information Systems, and Law or related disciplines. After successful completion of their degree, doctoral candidates will be awarded their degree from the Technische Universitaet Darmstadt.
This prestigious program offers scholarships to exceptional students who have the potential to make outstanding contributions to science, in the following areas of IT Security: Cryptography, privacy and trust, security for cyberphysical systems and networks, security of critical infrastructures, usability and security, security and privacy by design, economic and legal aspects of IT-security.
CASED intends to increase the number of female scientists and encourages female candidates to apply. Five openings are reserved for women only. In case of equal qualifications applicants with a degree of disability of at least 50 or equal will be given preference.
Application deadline: 15-Aug-2011
The position will be responsible for forming and leading a research team.
Candidates must have a finished PhD/doctoral degree in Computer Science or a related area; an outstanding publication record; and demonstrated experience in working with the international research community. Ideally they have held at least one postdoc position at a university other than the one they obtained their PhD degree from.
This position is associated with the European Center for Security and Privacy by Design (EC-SPRIDE), a new center established jointly by Fraunhofer SIT and the Technische Universit√§t Darmstadt, pending approval by the German Ministry of Science and Education (BMBF). The success of EC-SPRIDE will be measured in terms of the quality and the impact of its research results. While the scope at large is defined - engineering methods for building, testing and assuring predictably secure systems - the specific goals and objectives will be determined by the EC-SPRIDE senior researchers.
