PhD Scholarship in Cyber Security for The Internet of Things

Applicants are invited to apply for a PhD position at Uppsala University, Sweden. Applicants should apply before April 15, 2019.

Duties/Project description: The research will focus on system-oriented research to strengthen the security of the Internet of Things, e.g., in the context of vehicular networks, the energy grid, the smart home, and other similar smart connected systems. The core of the research will be towards attack detection and mitigation as well as resilient system design. For example, a focus early on will be in the design and implementation of algorithms for attack detection, taking into account the diverse nature of devices in the Internet of Things and how these may interact. The ultimate goal of the research is to have solutions that automatically can adapt to different types of heterogeneous IoT deployments, and protect the network as a whole even when certain nodes are under attack or lost. The research project is joint with Chalmers University of Technology and funded by a grant from the Swedish Civil Contingency Agency. There will be several Ph.D. students working on the project, solving different aspects.

Deadline: April 15, 2019
