KTH is the largest technical university in Sweden. Education and research cover a broad spectrum within natural sciences and engineering, as well as architecture, industrial engineering and management, urban planning, work science and environmental engineering. KTH has 13344 full-time students, with 6955 at the Bachelor (first) level, 5545 at the Master (second) level, 1314 students at the doctoral studies (third) level, and 3900 employees.
The School of Electrical Engineering (EE), with twelve departments and three competence centers, holds an internationally prominent position in basic and applied research, and it offers high quality education in five main areas: Electrical Power Engineering, Fusion and Space Plasma Physics, Telecommunications and Networks, Information and Control Systems. The School of EE offers a dynamic, creative, international environment to its approx. 300 employees (34 professors, 40 senior researchers and lecturers, and 160 doctoral students), and it is located on the main KTH campus in central Stockholm, a diverse and multicultural city.
Within EE, the security of networked systems is recognized as an issue of strategic importance, with new related activities recently initiated, in particular the Security group within the Department of Communication Networks (LCN). Our work combines theoretical approaches and experimental work, with results published over the past eight years that have attracted the attention of the research community. We have investigated problems ranging from secure and fault-tolerant communication and secure positioning to designing new security architectures and to enhancing location privacy. Our mission is to create trustworthy networked systems.
We invite applications for PhD research assistantships. We are looking for highly motivated individuals interested in pursuing research and graduate studies on the security of networked systems.
The positions will be with the Security group at LCN, and the successful applicants shall benefit from a network of collaborations in KTH and beyond. The Security group is internationally oriented and offers a stimulating and enjoyable working environment that favors diversity.
The emphasis of the envisioned work shall be on design and analysis of secure and privacy-enhancing protocols. Candidates with strong experimental/systems or theoretical profiles are encouraged to apply.
