Research Associate on Fly2Plan – Enabling a New Aviation Data System-of-Systems

Applications for this vacancy closed on 4 January 2021 at 12:00PM
The Cybersecurity Analytics Group in the Department of Computer Science are
looking to employ a full-time researcher to work on an InnovateUK-funded
research project on aviation data exchange. The research is being carried out
in collaboration with a consortium of academic and industrial partners led by
Heathrow Airport Limited.





The contract type is fixed-term for up to 15 months, ending 31 January 2022.;
a prompt start is desirable, since the project has a fixed end date.





The project seeks to research a new model for trusted aerospace data exchange
that improves efficiency and scalability and allows new entrants in urban air
mobility and autonomous operations to participate. The project will develop a
decentralised, multi-owner infrastructure based on technologies including
distributed ledgers, file-systems, and messaging protocols for use across the
aviation sectors (e.g., airlines, airports, air navigation service providers,
ground handling, drone operators).





The Oxford research focuses on the security of the system: formalisation and
verification of security properties, and development of operational-security
approaches to be applied to the system. You will be primarily responsible for
the formal verification of the security and privacy properties of the system
as it is developed, working closely with the Oxford team and wider consortium
to identify the necessary properties, verify that the system meets these
properties, and where necessary make recommendations for adapting the system
to ensure that security and privacy requirements are met. You will be a core
member of the Oxford research team. The Principal Investigator is Professor
Michael Goldsmith and the Co-Investigators are Professor Sadie Creese and Dr
Louise Axon.





The role is based in the Department of Computer Science at the University of
Oxford and will be a member of the wider cybersecurity research community in
the University.





Whilst the role is a grade 7 position, we would be willing to consider
candidates with potential but less experience who are seeking a development
opportunity, for which an initial appointment would be at grade 6 (Grade 6:
£29,176 - £34,804 p.a.) with the responsibilities adjusted accordingly. This
would be discussed with applicants at interview/appointment where appropriate.





The closing date for applications is 12 noon on Tuesday 5th January 2021,
Interviews are expected to be held the following week.





We are a Stonewall Top 100 Employer, Living Wage and Mindful Employer, holding
an Athena Swan Bronze Award, HR excellence in Research and Race Equality
Charter Bronze Award. Our staff and students come from all over the world and
we proudly promote a friendly and inclusive culture. Diversity is positively
