The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) is known worldwide for its high academic quality and the social relevance of its research programmes. The faculty’s excellent facilities accentuate its international position in teaching and research. Within this interdisciplinary and international setting the faculty employs more than 1100 employees, including about 400 graduate students and about 2100 students. Together they work on a broad range of technical innovations in the fields of sustainable energy, telecommunications, microelectronics, embedded systems, computer and software engineering, interactive multimedia and applied mathematics. EEMCS: Your Connection to the Future.

The Department of Intelligent Systems (INSY) conducts research on processing, interpretation and securing of data. Our aim is to enable humans and machines to deal with the increasing volume and complexity of data and communication. We have a strong focus on security, multimedia, and health sciences. The Department pursues its mission by combining fundamental research, engineering and design approaches to model-based & knowledge-based methods and algorithms. We actively seek research and technology transfer collaboration with international scientific peers, companies, and societal organisations.

Secure design and engineering is a central topic of research and education at Delft University of Technology. The Faculty of EEMCS focuses on computer (and data) science theory and engineering of cyber security in distributed systems and networks. Projects encompass network security, software engineering, privacy and security in peer-to-peer systems, privacy enhancing technology, and malware spreading, detection and modelling. Application domains include healthcare and intelligent energy supply (smart grids).

Job description

Rather than focusing on a narrow theme, we value the diversity of our cyber security research and education portfolio. This implies that we see ICT as an enabling technology and that technology-related cyber security challenges are researched while simultaneously taking into account the specific characteristics of the domain in which ICT is used.
The cyber security section broadly covers the following themes: (1) applied cryptography for information sharing and identity, privacy and trust enhancement; (2) (global) network security including security of critical infrastructures; and (3) data analytics for reverse engineering, attack and malware detection.

We are looking for an inspiring candidate who is able to strengthen the current research and education themes and activities of the section.The candidate has a PhD in computer science or a related discipline with a proven track record in cyber security and experience in at least one of the above-mentioned research themes of the section. (S)he is expected to strengthen the cooperation with current faculty members of the section in all research and education activities, including the (co-)supervision of PhD students. (S)he has the ambition to build partnerships with leading institutions worldwide. The candidate shares our view that communication skills are important, as is the ability to interact with peers, students and technical staff. Teaching experience is important.
