Security Lancaster is one of the four flagship Lancaster Research Institutes and is amongst the current 14 Academic Centres of Excellence in Cyber Security Research recognised by the UK government.

The aim of this role is to see that research is conducted at the highest international quality and to secure our reputation as world leaders in this field.
We encourage applications from strong and collegiate individuals that complement existing areas of expertise including but not limited to security and resilience of communications networks, industrial control systems (ICS) and Internet of Things (IoT), big data analytics to study security and privacy issues, analysis of human behaviours in the context of security, security and privacy for digital health.
We invite applications from candidates with appropriate specialist cyber security domain knowledge from academia, government or industry. Candidates should have an established international reputation for leadership in their field. Applicants should have a proven ability to develop and direct a team, to secure significant external research funding, and to generate substantial impact. We expect all candidates to be committed educators and to contribute to the development of our portfolio of courses, including our international partnerships.
