Grant-Funded Researcher (A/B) – School of Computer Sciences

Full time, fixed term opportunity for 2.5 years. Flexible work arrangements may be negotiated.

Contribute to research projects developing novel game theoretic methods that deliver predictable performance regardless of the strategy of the adversary.

The School of Computer Science is seeking to recruit a Grant-Funded Researcher at Level (A) or (B) in network security.

  • Knowledge of reinforcement learning, neural networks and other machine learning approaches.
  • Fluency in written and spoken English and the ability to communicate scientific and engineering ideas to all audiences, both orally in in writing.
  • Be eligible to hold a Commonwealth of Australia Department of Defence security clearance.

In addition to the above, to be successful at Level B you will need:

  • A PhD in maths,engineering, computer science or a related field.
