University of Kent - School of Computing

You will be working for the University of Kent as a team member of the EU funded C3ISP project either as a Research Associate or Assistant. The project’s mission is to define a collaborative and confidential information sharing, analysis and protection framework as a cloud service for cyber security management. C3ISP’s innovation is the possibility to share information in a flexible and controllable manner inside a collaborative multi-domain cloud environment to improve detection of cyber threats and response capabilities, whilst still preserving the confidentiality of the shared information.

As Research Assistant you will:

  • Help to design and implement the privacy preserving data sharing infrastructure.
  • Help to disseminate information about the Project.
  • Contribute to writing academic papers.

The Research Assistant will have:

  • A good first degree (2.1 or 1st) in Computer Science or a related discipline or equivalent.
  • Experience of programming.

As Research Associate you will:

  • Contribute significantly to the design of the privacy preserving data sharing cloud infrastructure.
  • Lead the implementation effort for the University of Kent.
  • Write project documentation and academic papers in order to disseminate the project's results.

The Research Associate will:

  • Hold a PhD in Computer Science or MSc with distinction in Computer Science or related discipline or equivalent.
  • Be an experienced programmer.

Both roles require you to be a good communicator, both written and spoken and to have the ability to work well as a team member, liaising well with internal and external collaborators.

Please make it clear in your application which grade/role you are applying for.

The School of Computing is a major component of the academic provision of the University of Kent. With around 40 permanent faculty members and over 1,000 students it is a large, multi-campus School (operating on both the Canterbury and Medway campuses). The School has a strong reputation for the quality of its teaching, and has an emphasis on work experience for its students (with some 75% of UG’s taking degrees with a “Year in industry” and an increasing number of MSc students choosing a work option as part of their programmes).
