Addressing critical security challenges and opportunities facing the international shipping industry, The University of Plymouth is creating its unique, world-first Cyber-SHIP Lab (SHIP: Security, Hardware, Information, Protection). This is your in-at-the-start opportunity to join a team that will make a significant contribution to levelling-up shipping's cyber-threat resilience relative to more cyber aware sectors such as technology and banking. Your work will help to safeguard essential-to-our-way-of life supply chains and the international economy. It may even save lives.

You will be joining a £3-million project supported by Research England and in collaboration with a host of blue-chip shipping industry organisations, including international ship operators, leading equipment vendors, classification societies, and tier-one international insurers.

The project builds on our established, world-class shipping industry cyber-security research and training facilities, including cyber ranges and our state-of-the-art ship simulator. The Lab will integrate maritime systems, and systems-of-systems found on real-world, seagoing vessels' bridges: older and state of the art ships, huge container vessels and tankers, bulk grain transporters, mega-cruise ships, ferries, super yachts, and naval vessels.

The School of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics within the Faculty of Science and Engineering is home to the Centre for Security, Communications and Network Research (CSCAN) and the Maritime Cyber Threats Research Group, the School has a longstanding and vibrant research environment, recently graduating its 100th doctoral student, and is active across national and internationally funded projects. It also supports specialist degrees at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, in addition to supporting the wider computing programmes and subject area.

You will hold a PhD/equivalent international qualification or commensurate level of recognition/international profile in a relevant discipline (such as Computer Science, Software Engineering, Artificial Intelligence, Cyber Security) and will have an in depth knowledge of the subject area to enable innovation and new understanding in the field. In addition, a solid foundation in the underlying principles of Computer Science, Engineering, or similar is a must, along with experience of delivering high quality research led teaching.

This is a full-time position working 37 hours per week on an initial fixed-term basis until December 2023 due to funding, with the potential for extension based on project deliverables.

For more information, please contact Kevin Jones by emailing or calling +.

Interviews are expected to take place Monday 24 th August 2020 via Zoom/MS Teams.
