Secure Cyber-Physical Systems (Ref. No. P-19-01)
The School of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Mathematics seeks applications for the head of the future Institute of Secure Cyber-Physical Systems. The position is linked to ahoi.digital, a programme of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg for strengthening Computer Science, and will begin in the 2020/2021 winter semester. The successful candidate is expected to advance security research on cyber-physical systems from the adaptation of established methods of communication and computer security in Cyber-Physical Systems applications to the design of new and innovative methods that facilitate control systems to safely handle intentional interference with their operation. This explicitly comprises both small-scale and large-scale control systems. Qualified applicants are expected to have an excellent track record in foundational and applied research in this area and to show a strong interest in interdisciplinary work with other engineering disciplines at TUHH such as robotics, mechatronics, energy systems or industrial automation. We particularly welcome applicants with a developed background in technical aspects of Cyber-Physical Systems, including but not necessarily limited to one or more of the following aspects:
• Design, analysis and implementation of security mechanisms and threats in Cyber-Physical Systems throughout the system stack,
• Security of Cyber-Physical Systems in a specific application domain,
• Interaction between safety and security,
• Intrusion detection systems for Cyber-Physical Systems.
