About the Role
We are looking to recruit a postdoctoral researcher to join our team at Queen Mary University of London. Applicants should have a background in organisational and/or human aspects of cyber security with experience in quantitative and/or qualitative methods for data collection and analysis, including a PhD (or being close to receiving a PhD) in a related area.
The post holder will contribute toward research into enhancing the cyber resilience of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) through the formation of cyber security communities of support, conducted in collaboration between Queen Mary University of London, the University of Nottingham, and the University of Kent.
You will be based at the Mile End Campus in the Department of Psychology. However, the work will also involve extensive collaboration and interaction with the other participating universities and external project partners.
You will have expertise in organisational and/or human aspects of cyber security and an interest in supporting the cyber security of SME organisations. A prior background in cyber security would be desirable but is not essential. Your key activities will be to conduct an initial analysis of existing cyber security guidance/support that is available to SMEs, leading to further work to track and analyse the success of their support experiences. You will be responsible for tracking and analysing SME support journeys and support the testing and validation of an online support broker tool that enables SMEs to seek cyber security advice and guidance within a local community of support. You will also contribute to dissemination workshops.
At Queen Mary University of London, we believe that a diversity of ideas helps us achieve the previously unthinkable.
Throughout our history, we’ve fostered social justice and improved lives through academic excellence. And we continue to live and breathe this spirit today, not because it’s simply ‘the right thing to do’ but for what it helps us achieve and the intellectual brilliance it delivers.

We offer competitive salaries, access to a generous pension scheme, 30 days’ leave per annum (pro-rata for fixed-term), a season ticket loan scheme and access to a comprehensive range of personal and professional development opportunities. In addition, we offer a range of work-life balance and family-friendly, inclusive employment policies, flexible working arrangements, and campus facilities, including an on-site nursery at the Mile End campus.
The role is full time (35 hours per week) and commences as soon as possible in order to join the active project and is available until February 2026. The starting salary will be Grade 4, in the range of £37,182 - £40,223 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance.
