Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Reader in Cybersecurity

The School of Computing Science invites applications for the post of Lecturer / Senior Lecturer / Reader (based on experience and qualifications) in Cybersecurity.

We are particularly interested in applicants with outstanding achievements in areas covering embedded and networked systems security and resilience, operating systems security, hardware security, data privacy, and cryptography.

We have a long-standing record in areas spanning topics related to the security and resilience of networked systems, and the security and safety for Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). We have expanded our portfolio into hardware security, software verification, IoT privacy as well as human-centered and usable security. We are currently hosting two out of the nine projects funded nationally by the UKRI digital security by design Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF) in 2020 to explore hardware capabilities in designing secure systems. We have also recently been awarded five out of a total of eighteen projects from the 2nd Strategic Research Fund (SRF) Funding Call of the PETRAS National Centre of Excellence for IoT Systems Cybersecurity. We are hosting the Cyber Defence Lab, a unique laboratory facility providing exclusive access to a set of safety-critical network infrastructures, hosting data from digital twins of several UK critical infrastructures.

The postholder will develop, lead and sustain research of international standard in Computing Science; contribute to teaching, assessment, project supervision, and curriculum design at undergraduate and postgraduate levels; and participate in School management and organisation.

For appointment at Reader you will have an outstanding track record of national and international distinction and leadership in research, including publications, income and awards, bringing external recognition and distinction to yourself and the University.

Two positions are available.

These positions are equivalent to US tenure track Assistant or Associate Professor.

Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Reader in Low Carbon & Sustainable Computing

The School of Computing Science has started a new Theme (similar to a Research Centre) on the topic of Low Carbon and Sustainable Computing and welcomes applications for positions to strengthen this effort.

If present trends continue, by 2040 the CO2 emissions from computing will be almost half the total emissions level acceptable to keep global warming below 2 oC. This growth in computing emissions is unsustainable. The emissions from production of computing devices far exceed the emissions from operating them, so even if devices are more energy efficient, producing more of them will make the emissions problem worse. Therefore the answer is to extend the useful life of our computing devices, and this is primarily a software problem. In particular, future software design cannot assume that hardware will continue to improve in speed, capacity and power consumption.

The vision for the Low Carbon and Sustainable Computing Theme is simple but ambitious:

- To extend the useful life of our devices and even increase their capabilities without any increase in energy consumption, purely through advances in Computing Science. This requires improvements in (at least) algorithms, software design and software engineering methods, programming languages and compilers, operating systems, cybersecurity, user interface design, data storage and management.

- To develop the science and technology for the next generation of devices, designed for energy efficiency as well as long life through pervasive hardware-software codesign.

As the research in this Theme aims to be strongly interdisciplinary, both within Computing Science and across other disciplines, we welcome applications in research areas that complement the existing strengths in any of the existing sections in the School: Glasgow Systems Section (GLASS), Glasgow Interactive SysTems (GIST), Information, Data and Analysis (IDA) and Formal Analysis, Theory and Algorithms (FATA).

Two positions are available.

These positions are equivalent to US tenure track Assistant or Associate Professor.

Relevant Section: Relevant across all research sections within the School of Computing Science.

Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Reader in Programming Language Foundations

Applications for the post are welcome in the area of Programming Language Foundations. Research in this area is situated within the Formal Analysis, Theory and Algorithms (FATA) Section and the Programming Languages Theme (www.gla.ac.uk/schools/computing/research/researchthemes/pl-theme/) of the School of Computing Science. Current topics include programming language semantics and type systems, session types for concurrent and distributed systems, mechanised metatheory for programming languages, and quantum programming languages. A broader context is provided by collaboration with the Glasgow Systems Section (GLASS) on topics including actor languages, runtime systems, automatic parallelisation, and digital security by design. We also run the Programming Languages at University of Glasgow (PLUG) seminar series, participate in the Scottish Programming Languages Seminar (SPLS), contribute to the Scottish Programming Languages and Verification Summer School, and collaborate Europe-wide in the Behavioural API (BehAPI) network.

The postholder will develop, lead and sustain research of international standard in Computing Science; contribute to teaching, assessment, project supervision and curriculum design at undergraduate and postgraduate levels; and participate in School management and organisation. For appointment at Reader you will have an outstanding track record of national and international distinction and leadership in research, including publications, income, and awards, bringing external recognition and distinction to yourself and the University.

One position is available.
