Project: Dynamic Policies for Shared Cyber-Physical Infrastructures under Attack (DYPOSIT)

The IRC-Chist-ERA programme funded project DYPOSIT will investigate the problem of large, shared cyber physical systems under attack. The project will consider the challenge of dynamically formulating and adapting security controls, rapidly and on-demand, in the face of unfolding attacks on a shared cyber physical system fabric integrating multiple applications run by a variety of stakeholders. The project is being undertaken in collaboration with the Lancaster University, UK and Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium.

The Post-Doctoral Researcher will be expected to make significant contributions to the direction and progress of the project in addition to working closely with Dr. Simon Foley, the project Principal Investigator at University College Cork. Applications are invited from those with a PhD qualification and publications in a directly relevant area. Applicants with a background in Computer Security and who are interested in developing research experience in cyber-physcial systems, or applicants with background in the modelling and reasoning about systems/networks and are interested in developing research experience in cyber-physcial systems security, are also invited to apply.
