The Cyber Security (CSec) research group and the Centre for Parallel Computing (CPC) at the University of Westminster are looking for one Research Associate in Cloud Security to carry out research within the EU funded H2020 COLA (Cloud Orchestration at the Level of Application) project. COLA will define and provide a reference implementation of a generic and pluggable framework that supports the optimal and secure deployment and run-time orchestration of cloud applications. The successful candidate will carry out tasks in relation to the design and development of novel secure and privacy-preserving cloud orchestration solutions, specifically targeting and supporting application developers. In addition to that, the successful candidate will be also expected to contribute in writing project deliverables and research papers related to the project.

We expect candidates to have a strong research background in network security and/or applied cryptography. Proven research in areas such as trusted computing, cloud security, safety verification, security verification, data privacy, cyber-physical and internet of things security and cloud or mobile security will be considered as a plus. 

The primary objective of the Cyber Security Research Group at the University of Westminster is to bring together expertise in education, research and practice in the field of information security and privacy. The group members conduct research in areas spanning from the theoretical foundations of cryptography to the design and implementation of leading edge efficient and secure communication protocols. To this end, we welcome applications from candidates whose research areas complement the existing research of the group.
