14 PhD positions are available in Austria within the SPyCoDe Special Research Program (https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://spycode.at__;!!IBzWLUs!RRd1HyXBNOqURsKUDGxNF6bqhucZWXxMDBCpR0XJpj0OT1z6vsrIWWXovf4ER8EtFAxAaCmxE9KU0tiK1EaUHkYPhAB1UKuNuu4tfhrxegU$  ).

SPyCoDe (Semantic and Cryptographic Foundations of Security and Privacy by Compositional Design) is a special research program funded by FWF. The collaborating research institutions are

  *   TU Wien
  *   IST Austria
  *   Universität Wien
  *   TU Graz
  *   Universität Klagenfurt

The security and privacy (S&P) by design principle states that data protection should be considered since the early design of digital technologies, making S&P a cornerstone in digitalization. SPyCoDe aims at creating the technological foundations for designing complex, multi-layer systems with provable S&P guarantees. This goal is highly interdisciplinary, integrating computer-aided verification, system security, and cryptography, and touching on further fields, like networks, game theory, and blockchains. The cornerstone of our approach is the specification and enforcement of S&P at the level of the interfaces between layers in order to establish end-to-end S&P guarantees in a compositional way.

SPyCoDe combines scientific excellence and interdisciplinarity. The team members are world-class researchers, whose prior work in the field led not only to groundbreaking theoretical contributions but also to immediate, large-scale industrial adoption. A unique feature of SPyCoDe is the combination of world-class basic research in a timely topic with immediate, large-scale industrial impact.

Entry level salary as a predoctoral researcher is covered by level B1 of the Austrian Collective Agreement for university staff, and receives a minimum of currently EUR 2.196,75/month gross, 14 times/year for 30 hours/week and EUR 2.929,00/month for 40 hours/week (about EUR 28.675/year net). Relevant working experiences may increase the monthly income.

The application for SPyCoDe is open until November 1st, 2022.

The expected start is January 1st, 2023.
