13:34 [Job][New] Qua­li­fi­ca­ti­ons Fel­lows (DFG - Research Training Group), Horst Görtz Institute for IT-Security

  The Horst Görtz In­sti­tu­te (HGI) at Ruhr-Uni­ver­si­ty Bo­chum is one of Eu­ro­pe’s lea­ding re­se­arch cen­ters in IT se­cu­ri­ty. The DFG, or Ger­man Re­se­arch Fo­un­da­ti­on, awar­ded more than 4 mil­li­on euro to the HGI for the es­ta­blish­ment of the in­ter­di­sci­pli­na­ry re­se­arch trai­ning group “New Chal­len­ges for Cryp­to­gra­phy in Ubi­qui­tous Com­pu­ting”. We are look­ing for can­di­da­tes with out­stan­ding ba­che­lor`s de­gree in the fields of elec­tri­cal en­gi­nee­ring, com­pu­ter sci­ence, ma­the­ma­tics or re­la­ted areas (begin of doc­to­ral stu­dies post-B.?Sc.).

The re­se­arch trai­ning group will study pro­blems which are fun­da­men­tal for se­cu­ring the In­ter­net of Things. A cen­tral goal of the doc­to­ral trai­ning is an in­ter­di­sci­pli­na­ry and struc­tu­red edu­ca­ti­on at the hig­hest sci­en­ti­fic level. Es­ta­blis­hing net­works to in­ter­na­tio­nal­ly top ran­king re­se­arch groups is part of the trai­ning.

The Ruhr-Uni­ver­si­ty Bo­chum sup­ports women‘s ca­re­er de­ve­lop­ment. Ap­p­li­ca­ti­ons from women are thus ex­pli­cit­ly wel­co­me. In those areas in which women are un­der­re­pre­sen­ted they will be con­s­i­de­red pre­fe­ren­ti­al­ly ac­cor­ding to the re­gu­la­ti­ons of the „Lan­des­gleich­stel­lungs­ge­setz” if their abi­li­ties, ap­ti­tu­de and pro­fes­sio­nal per­for­mance are equal with those of the fel­low ap­p­li­cants un­less re­a­sons con­cerning the per­son of a fel­low ap­p­li­cant are pre­do­mi­nant.

In case of equal qua­li­fi­ca­ti­on, ap­p­li­ca­ti­ons of se­ver­ely disa­b­led per­sons or per­sons that are re­gar­ded as being on a par with se­ver­ely disa­b­led per­sons ac­cor­ding to § 2 Abs. 3 SGB IX will be con­s­i­de­red pre­fe­r
