Job description

Advances in healthcare IT systems have resulted in complex socio-technical architectures, which deliver integrated and patient-centered services. All these transformations, in addition to clinical benefits, introduce risks including security risks that need to be understood, managed, and reduced to acceptable levels. There are numerous reports of new types of security vulnerabilities for this kind of architectures, which challenge the effectiveness of the current security tools.

LSEA develops novel methodologies, infrastructures, and technologies that enable an effective, harmonious and continuous development and evolution of secure system engineering management activities in Internet of Medical Things (IoMT). The objective is to advance knowledge and basic understanding of decision making in diverse IoMT threat landscapes based on different system and component level interactions. LSEA will propose scalable and verifiable secure system engineering technologies that capture, communicate, and act on system complexities in order to improve decision-making in cyber defense while automating cybersecurity assurance.

To support this activity, LSEA offers a full-time research engineer position in the cross-cutting fields of model-based engineering, cyber-security, and IoT. The research engineer will be required to undertake some or all of the duties below:

·        To conduct research and to contribute to the production of research results in the areas of model-based engineering, cyber-security, and IoT.

·        To conduct individual and collaborative research including: development of technologies; analysis and interpretation of research data; use of appropriate research techniques and methods; writing up of research results and dissemination through publications, seminar and conference presentations and public engagement and outreach activities; contributing to the identification of possible new areas of research.

·        To undertake appropriate organisational and administrative activities connected to the research project.

To develop and initiate collaborative working internally and externally, duties to include: the building of internal contacts and participation in internal networks; collaboration with colleagues on joint projects as required; participation in and identification of external networks in order to share information and identify potential opportunities for collaboration and possible sources of funding; attendance at and contribution to relevant meetings.

Applicant Profile

Successful candidates must hold a Master’s, or a PhD (or be near completion) in systems or software engineering, model-based engineering, safety engineering, computer science or a closely related topic. We are mainly looking for highly motivated applicants with:

·    Expertise in model-based engineering.

·    Knowledge in IoT.

·    Background on cybersecurity will be considered as an advantage.

·    Self-learning and teamwork skills.

·    Strong technical programming skills. Practical experience with Eclipse IDE and Java.
