Dear all,

I'm looking to fill a PhD position in the Security Group at the Computer Laboratory. Funding for this position is provided by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) in collaboration with the Royal Society.

The successful candidate will undertake research on methods to analyse the security of anonymous communication systems and privacy enhancing technologies. This broad research topic falls within an EPSRC priority area and provides considerable scope for the PhD candidate to find his or her own research direction.

Candidates should possess, or who will shortly obtain, at least an upper 2nd class honours degree in computer science, software engineering or a related discipline, and ideally, a Master's degree in a computer-science related field. Strong mathematical and programming skills, along with a keen interest in privacy and anonymous communications, are essential. A good understanding of networking and operating systems is highly desirable.

Funding (covering approved fees and living expenses for one person) is available for 3 years, and the successful candidate must be able to start on 30 September 2013. Candidates should be UK or EU citizens, or have appropriate permissions to work in the UK.

Further details can be found at http://www.jobs.cam.ac.uk/job/-27372/

Please forward this mail to anyone who you think might be interested.

Best wishes,
Steven Murdoch
