Postdoctoral and PhD student position in "Security and Games", Luxembourg (Luxembourg)

The university of Luxembourg has vacancies for 1 Postdoc position and 1 PhD student position in the project "Game-theoretic Approaches to Security"

The project aims to develop new approaches to the design and analysis of secure systems based on the observation that the security of a system can be considered as the result of a game between a defender and an attacker of the system. This observation opens up a wealth of analysis methods from the field of game theory. It is expected that game theoretic approaches have an impact on the design and analysis of fair-exchange protocols and other types of security protocols. Research will be conducted on the study of security attacks and counter-measures to prevent or mitigate such attacks. The project will focus on the application of non-zero sum games and games of imperfect information.

The PhD student will be employed for a period of 3 or 4 years (40 hrs/week), starting on April 1, 2009 (or shortly after). The Postdoc will be employed for a period of 3 years (40 hrs/week) starting in the first half of 2009. The project will be supervised by Prof. Dr. Leon van der Torre and Prof. Dr. Sjouke Mauw.

Deadline for application is February 20, 2009. For more information, see http://satoss.uni.lu/vacancies/sgames.php or contact Prof. Dr. Leon van der Torre (, +352 4666445261) or Prof. Dr. Sjouke Mauw (, +352 4666445480).
