Two PhD student positions in formal frameworks for computer security, Luxembourg, LUXEMBOURG



The University of Luxembourg has two open Ph.D. positions at its Interdisciplinary Centre for 
Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT) (http://wwwen.uni.lu/snt). We are seeking Ph.D. candidates 
to participate in the activities of the SaToSS
(http://satoss.uni.lu/) and of the ApSIA (http://apsia.gforge.uni.lu/) research groups.

Project description:
----------------------
The main objective of the Ph.D. project is to develop a formal framework supporting modeling and 
analysis of socio-technical components of information systems. We aim to develop strategies and 
tools to detect and prevent attacks involving human, physical and digital elements. One of the 
goals is to extend current methodology for security protocol analysis, by taking human behavior 
and properties of physical objects into account. This goal includes a necessity of defining 
appropriate adversary models and identifying the security properties relevant in a socio-technical 
context.

Research environment:
----------------------
Both Ph.D. students will collaborate with the research groups SaToSS (Security and Trust of 
Software Systems) led by Prof. Dr. S. Mauw and APSIA (Applied Security and Information Assurance) 
led by Prof. Dr.P.Y.A. Ryan. These positions are part of a national research project 
"Socio-Technical Analysis of Security and Trust" funded by the National Research Fund in 
Luxembourg. The University of Luxembourg offers a three years appointment (extension up to 4 
years in total is possible) in an international and multicultural environment. The University is 
an equal opportunity employer.

Applicant's profile:
--------------------
* MSc in Computer Science or Mathematics
* A proven interest in security
* Strong background in formal methods or logics
* Good written and oral English skills

Start date:
-----------
As soon as possible

Applications:
