Kent_KirCCS logo

The School of Computing is seeking to appoint 2 new Lecturers (Assistant Professors) in Cyber Security to support the growth plan of the Kent Interdisciplinary Research Centre in Cyber Security (KirCCS).

Applications are invited from candidates in any research area that can complement or enhance the existing research strengths of the KirCCS and the Cyber Security research group at the School of Computing, especially in the socio-technical security theme. Successful candidates will be made members of both KirCCS and the Institute of Advanced Studies in Cyber Security and Conflict (SoCyETAL). SoCyETAL will have a dedicated physical space allowing researchers from different schools and disciplines to work together, and there will be dedicated PhD studentships for members of SoCyETAL.

We are particularly interested in candidates who have worked with researchers in social science disciplines including but not limited to Psychology, Law, Sociology, Business, and Economics. Candidates with research experience in Artificial Intelligence are welcome, especially if that research goes beyond pure technical issues into topics such as human behaviour, ethics, law, transparency, trust, fairness, and policy.

For informal queries, please contact the KirCCS Centre Director and the SoCyETAL Co-Director Prof Shujun Li and the Head of School of Computing Prof Richard Jones.
