Research Fellow in Industrial/Cyber-Physical System Security Modelling
Closing date: 17 June 2021
The Research Fellow will be based in the Science Technology Engineering and Public Policy Department within the UCL PETRAS Centre research group. The PETRAS (privacy, ethics, trust, reliability, acceptability, and security) National Centre of Excellence for IoT Systems Cybersecurity provides national capability enabling the UK to become a world-leader in IoT and associated systems security. Duties will entail research into ontological frameworks for the secure integration of dynamic IoT-derived information into static data structures, typical of BIM and GIS. Investigating the application of ontological methods to securely combining and fusing information from Internet of Things sensors with data frameworks associated with Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Geographical Information Systems (GIS). The contract duration is for 12 months until September 2022 in the first instance.
The successful candidate should exhibit expertise, interest and experience in knowledge management structures /data science from an IT researcher’s viewpoint. Expertise in ontological methods and an understanding of ‘Edge’ IT networks and elements, e.g. IoT and machine learning at the edge is highly desirable. Please note: Appointment at Grade 7 is dependent upon having been awarded a PhD; if this is not the case, initial appointment will be at Research Assistant Grade 6B (salary £31,542 - £33,257 per annum) with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis.
