The Institute for Communication Systems (ICS) home of the 5G Innovation Centre (5GIC) is looking to recruit a Research Fellow in Secure Intelligent Transport Systems. This exciting opportunity will contribute to the PETRAS project "Artificial Intelligence for IoT key management and mitigating insider and outsider attacks (AI-IoT)."

The PETRAS Internet of Things Research Hub is a consortium of eleven leading UK universities working together to explore critical issues in privacy, ethics, trust, reliability, acceptability, and security. The AI-IoT project will define an AI based key management or key agreement in specific IoT dynamic scenarios such as Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and Connected Autonomous Vehicles (CAV) to examine the impact of key management on network performance parameters such as delay, packet loss and bandwidth. It will also use AI to analysis the key management performance in relation to traffic load, and discover any unknown relationships between key management performance and traffic levels.

ICS has been established for over ten years as one of a number of autonomous research centres at the University of Surrey, housing over 160 researchers, PhD students and academic staff with research focused on future communication systems including mobile and wireless communications, satellite communications, and networking (management, protocols and security).

Applicants should have a post graduate degree related to network, computer sciences or engineering with specialisation in cyber security. Research experience in secure ITS/CAV or or secure Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) would be an advantage.

The successful candidate will be joining a very strong and vibrant research team and will be supported by academic staff and PhD students working on the programme, although he/she will be expected to coordinate as well as contribute to the research.

For informal enquiries please contact Dr Haitham Cruickshank, email:, or telephone: 01483 686007

Please note, it is University Policy to offer a starting salary equivalent to Level 3.6 (£31,302) to successful applicants who have been awarded, but are yet to receive, their PhD certificate.  Once the original PhD certificate has been submitted to the local HR Department, the salary will be increased to Level 4.1 (£32,236).
