Two Post-doc Positions in Information Security (M/F)
The University of Luxembourg seeks to hire two outstanding post-doctoral
 researchers at its Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability
 and Trust( (SnT).

 The successful candidates will participate in the activities of the
 SaToSS( SaToSS research group led by Prof. Dr.
 Sjouke Mauw. The SaToSS group is working on formalizing and applying
 formal reasoning to real-world security problems and trust issues. The
 research topics of the group include: security protocols, security
 modeling, formal methods for security, socio-technical aspects of
 security, risk management, privacy, verification, etc.

 Your role
 The SaToSS group is currently looking for two post-doctoral researchers.

 The first position is within the national project Attack-Defense Trees:
 Theory Meets Practice (ADT2P). ADT2P is a follow-up project of a
 recently finalized project Attack
 Trees( The main tasks of the
 post-doc hired on this project will be to:
 - Devise methods for (semi-)automatic creation of security models from
    attack patterns,
 - Develop techniques and algorithms for quantitative analysis of
    large-scale security models,
 - Integrate the attack-defense tree formalism with existing risk
    assessment methods,
 - Validate the obtained results on realistic case studies conducted
    together with the project partners from industry,
 - Co-supervise the Ph.D. student working on the project.

 The second position is partially funded by the EU project
 Technology-supported Risk Estimation by Predictive Assessment of
 Socio-technical Security (TREsPASS)(
 TREsPASS focuses on modeling and analysis of socio-technical aspects of
 security. The tasks of the post-doc selected for this position will be to:
 - Contribute to the creation of security models that can capture
    social, technical, and physical aspects,
 - Develop techniques for quantitative analysis of these models,
 - Introduce methods for sharing and maintenance of socio-technical
    security models,
 - Contribute to development of methods and tools for visualization of
 In addition to the TREsPASS-related tasks, the post-doc will also
 conduct research on selected security topics which are of interest for

 Your Profile
 The candidates are expected to have:
 - A Ph.D. degree in computer science or mathematics,
