About the opportunity
The School of Information Technologies at the University of Sydney is embarking on an exciting growth journey, adding several new positions which will complement our core areas of strength pushing the frontiers to new research areas. As part of this plan, the School of Information Technologies (SIT) invites applications from outstanding candidates for a continuing Senior Lecturer or Associate Professor position (Level C or D) in Security starting immediately. The level of appointment will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
This is an attractive opportunity for candidates with an interest and passion for high quality excellent research and teaching. Strong candidates from all areas of computer security are sought. The ideal candidate will have a strong research background and evidence of substantial research output in one or more of the following areas of security: software security, network security or cloud security, theoretical foundations of security, usable security, quantum-based security, cryptography, blockchains, and application security. We are looking for team players who would help bring together current university efforts in cyber security targeting such areas as IoT and physical and cyber infrastructure.
