About the Project

One fully funded 4-year EPSRC iCASE PhD studentship in Robotic
Cyberphysical Systems Security at the Security Group in the Department of Computer Science at University of Strathclyde, UK.

Applications are invited from candidates with undergraduate or masters qualifications (1st class) from students with a computer science or related background including engineering and sciences. All studentships offer a generous tax-free stipend and tuition fees to support UK/EU (only) students. PhD scholars spend the first year undertaking comprehensive formal training followed by three years of focused research.

Research focus: Robot cyberphysical systems increasingly play a leading role in pharmaceutical and manufacturing sectors. The PhD student will model robot-malware properties, understand the fundamental limits of technologies used as robot-security foundations, and design effective countermeasures. We expect a bulk of the student's time will be spent in studying how to deal with the sea of uncertainty that comes from building a system out of unreliable and untrustworthy components, in particular AI and machine-learning components.

The candidate will be expected to work in close collaboration with other members of the security group and industry partner (NPL).

The security group at Strathclyde has ten full time security academics.The group aims to develop a cohort of students with expertise in systems security with links to statistics, psychology, human behaviour, and economics. The group has a thriving PhD program with over 30 PhD students working on Privacy Technologies, Cybercrime measurement, Malware, Anonymity, Machine learning, Industrial IoT security, and Cyber Law.

Important Dates:

This advert has a nominal end date of 25th December 2020, however we will make appointments as soon as we have identified candidates with the right background. We therefore recommend interested candidates toinformally contact Dr. Shishir Nagaraja () at the earliest.
