The Security and Privacy group at the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh seeks to hire two faculty at the level of lecturer/senior lecturer/reader (equivalent to assistant professor, associate professor in the US).
Applications are invited for a Lecturer to join the Security and Privacy group, part of the School of Informatics, at The University of Edinburgh. For an exceptional candidate, appointment to the position of Senior Lecturer or Reader will be considered. The level of appointment would be determined by the selection panel following interviews in Edinburgh in early 2018.
The Security and Privacy group carries out research on all aspects of security and privacy, including applied and theoretical cryptography, software security, human factors, protocol analysis, verification and quantum/post-quantum cryptography. The group is part of the School of Informatics, a vibrant world-class research environment in central Edinburgh with a community of over 600 research, teaching and support staff and postgraduate research students. Since the first UK Research Assessment Exercise in 1986 and until the most recent (REF 2014), Informatics at Edinburgh has consistently been assessed to have more internationally excellent and world-class research than any other UK University. In 2017, the University has been recognised as a UK Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security Research by the EPSRC funding council.
