PostDoc’s and PhD’s Dependability and Security of Critical Infrastructures
Modern society would not exist without
dependable and secure ICT. For example the utilities such as
electricity, water, gas, and phone rely heavily on ICT. The Supervisory
Command and Data Acquisition systems (SCADA) of the utilities are
slowly migrating from proprietary protocols and networks to using the
Internet. This causes a considerable increase of the risk of attacks on
SCADA systems. We are looking for a number of PostDocs and PhD students
to help us mitigate those risks by researching new security and
dependability measures for critical infrastructures.


University Graduate
You have completed a
relevant university degree (M.Sc. level for the PhD student position,
PhD level for the PostDoc position) or are about to graduate in an area
that is relevant to our research, e.g. computer science, electrical
engineering, or mathematics. You like working in a team and have
intellectual curiosity and knowledge of one or more of the following
topics: information systems, distributed systems, computer networking,
dependability or security. Your main responsibility will be to carry
out research, but you will be given the opportunity to acquire some
teaching experience.

We offer both our PhD students and PostDoc researchers the
opportunity to broaden their knowledge by joining international
exchange programs, by participating in national and international
conferences and workshops, and by visiting other research institutes
and universities worldwide.


University of Twente Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS)
Sharing knowledge, working together, research,
innovation. It is all part of the only campus university in the
Netherlands: the University of Twente (UT). A university with an
international character. We have for example many foreign doctoral
students, and master programmes are provided in English. Divided over 5
faculties, we provide more than 50 Bachelor and Master programmes,
varying from Applied Physics and Public Administration to Applied
Communication Science and Biomedical Technology. In beautiful green
surroundings, more than 8000 students and 2700 staff live, work and
recreate at the UT. It is also a place where talented people get every
opportunity to perform cutting edge research. But as an entrepreneurial
university this is not all we do. In ‘Kennispark’, for example, we work
together with the business community, we support our students in
setting up their own businesses and participate in many projects in the
area of knowledge development. In brief, a dynamic climate in which to
work and study.


The Computer Science department of the Faculty
of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) is
one of the largest academic institutions in computer science in the
Netherlands, with 220 faculty members and 1200 students. It provides

and Telematics. In addition, the department contributes to computer
science education within other academic programmes. The research of the
department is part of the multidisciplinary research institute Centre
for Telematics and Information Technology (CTIT).
