Call for applications for 2 new Lectureships (Assistant Professorships) in Cyber Security

As part of the first recruitment round to the new Institute of Advanced Studies in Cyber Security and Conflict (SoCyETAL) and to support the growth plan of the Kent Interdisciplinary Research Centre in Cyber Security (KirCCS), the School of Computing of the University of Kent is seeking to appoint 2 new Lecturers (Assistant Professors) in Cyber Security.

Applications are invited from candidates in any research area that can complement or enhance the existing research strengths of the KirCCS and the Cyber Security research group at the School of Computing, especially in the socio-technical security theme. Successful candidates will be made members of both KirCCS and SoCyETAL. SoCyETAL will have a dedicated physical space allowing researchers from different schools and disciplines to work together, and there will be dedicated PhD studentships for members of SoCyETAL.

We are particularly interested in candidates who have worked with researchers in social science disciplines including but not limited to Psychology, Law, Sociology, Business, and Economics. Candidates with research experience in Artificial Intelligence are welcome, especially if that research goes beyond pure technical issues into topics such as human behaviour, ethics, law, transparency, trust, fairness, and policy.

For more details about the vacancies and to apply for the posts, please visit the following web page: https://jobs.kent.ac.uk/STM1002.

For informal queries, please contact the KirCCS Centre Director and the SoCyETAL Co-Director Prof Shujun Li and the Head of School of Computing Prof Richard Jones.

Call for applications for 17 PhD studentships in Cyber Security

The Centre is calling for applications for a number of PhD studentships. For the last two, the full funding is available for "home" students (roughly speaking, UK/EU students, but not based on nationality) only. To understand if you are eligible as a "home fee" student, please check the detailed fees regulations in England.
