CASED is an IT Security research center at Technische Universität Darmstadt in cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute for Secure Information Technology (SIT) and the University of Applied Sciences Darmstadt (h_da). CASED constitutes a research infrastructure for forefront IT Security research.
CASED offers an attractive, international, English speaking environment in one of the most interesting metropolitan areas in Germany surrounded by beautiful countryside. The Frankfurt Airport is just 30 km away. CASED students and scientists come from all over the world. PhD students will become members of the CASED graduate school, which supports them during their entire PhD research, for instance through professional courses for transferable skills such as trainings in delivering scientific presentations or writing scientific papers.
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 Universität Darmstadt.
This prestigious program offers scholarships to exceptional students who have the potential to make outstanding contributions to science. The research group of Prof. Stefan Katzenbeisser is particularly looking for candidates with a background in applied cryptography, privacy and cloud computing.

KTH Royal Institute of Technology seeks a full professor in Computer Science
As part of an effort to expand its range of activities in the computer security area, the Department of Theoretical Computer Science with the School of Computer Science and Communication at KTH, Stockholm, Sweden, is looking to recruit a full professor in computer security.
Computer security concerns methods and techniques for the construction of secure computer systems. Relevant security properties include confidentiality, integrity, and availability at system, component, and data levels. The subject also includes modeling, analysis, and testing of existing computer systems from the point of view of security.
A professor must possess documented scientific and didactic skills in the subject, and must have documented experience from independently managing, executing and developing education and research at an internationally high level.
Extensive competence and skills are required in computer security and within one or more adjoining area(s) such as operating systems, machine architecture, parallel, distributed, and networked systems, formal methods, and programming languages. An important objective is to build up new activity in experimental computer security within undergraduate teaching as well as research. Research competence and/or industrial experience in practical aspects of computer security such as vulnerability testing is therefore given a high priority. Documented experience and ability to finance and lead larger research projects, as well as to develop national and international collaborations is of great importance, as is the ability to contribute to and develop university education at all levels, including supervision
Applicants should possess at least two years of experience (work or academic) in the field of software security, like performing software security audits. Ability to engage with product teams independently with minimal supervision is a must. Applicants should have expertise in two or more of the following areas:
- Code review, analysis and vulnerability assessment (C, C++, ARM assembly,C#,Java)
- Security testing, e.g. fuzzing, instrumentation, monitoring
- Operating system security
- Mobile platform security
- Mitigation techniques
- Incident response
In-depth knowledge in the following specific areas will be considered a plus:
- Mobile operating system internals (Android, Windows Phone, iOS)
- Static analysis
- Firmware analysis and reverse engineering
- ARM architecture
Graduate degree in a security related field of Computer Science or Mathematics is a plus.
