Royal Holloway's Centre for Doctoral Training in Cyber Security is now receiving applications for the 2014 cohort. We will be awarding 10 fully-funded PhD studentships (stipend and college fees for four years) to outstanding candidates to join the CDT in October 2014. Possible research topics include the basic components of security services, such as cryptographic algorithms and trusted hardware; management of cryptographic keys; the correctness of the design and implementation of security protocols; the design of security services for embedded systems; business information systems, telecommunications networks and critical infrastructure; the detection and analysis of malware; and the study of economics, psychology, organizational theory, design theory and sociology in the context of information and cyber security.
We will consider applications from candidates with undergraduate and master's qualifications in a wide range of disciplines, including, but not limited to, mathematics, computer science, and electrical and electronic engineering. Funding is provided by the EPSRC (the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council), so full studentships are available to UK residents only. Closing date for receiving applications is the 30th March 2014. We will however assess applications on an ongoing basis, and we reserve the right to make an offer to candidates before the closing date.
