Locked gate image

The School of Computing is currently inviting applications for a three-year PhD scholarship in Human-machine teaming for supporting human decision making to enhance security of cyber-physical systems.

We invite applications for a three year, funded PhD studentship from UK or French nationals only, as it is a joint UK-France project.

The research will be supervised by Prof Shujun Li, Director of Kent Interdisciplinary Research Centre in Cyber Security (KirCCS) and Professor of Cyber Security at the University of Kent, UK and Prof Joaquin Garcia-Alfaro, Télécom SudParis, Institut Mines-Telecom, France.

The student will be registered as a full-time student at the University of Kent but will spend 50% of their time at the French institution.

The School is a welcoming and supportive environment that has been recognised with a Bronze Athena SWAN award. We are a well-balanced, inclusive and diverse community that aims to further enhance our achievements and reputation in teaching, research and innovation. We provide comprehensive support for our research students including:
• regular supervision meetings
• a research training programme
• computer equipment
• a desk in an office
• funds for conference travel

The REF 2014 ranked us in the top quartile of 89 UK Computing departments, coming 22nd for Research Power and 12th for Research Intensity.
