Europe portrays itself as the citizens' first continent. Security, safety, and privacy should therefore be considered an integral part of any smart embedded edge device. Treating security as a first-class citizen when designing hardware components and future computer architectures requires novel design methodologies that enable explicit trade-offs between low-power, real-time, safety and security aspects in the hardware architecture. This position will research design methodologies to design secure hardware components and computer architectures for future edge devices as well as the embedding of these security features in the hardware abstraction layer through which the secure hardware connects to the software security stack. Are you inspired to have your research achieve these goals and develop secure by design hardware in a systematic manner? This could be your next exciting new career opportunity.
As a newly appointed faculty member, you will be working in the Electronics Systems Group at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). The group aims to provide a scientific basis for design trajectories of electronic systems, ranging from digital circuits to cyber-physical systems. You would contribute to our research on computer architectures. Traditionally we have focused on the trade-off between performance, energy, and area. With your research, we want to add security as an explicit fourth dimension in this trade-off space. Next to your research quality, your educational skills are very important as you will develop and teach courses at both undergraduate and graduate level in English. You will be involved in supervising Bachelor, Master, PDEng, and PhD candidates.
Electronic Systems Group
The Electronic Systems (ES) group consists of eight full professors, two associate professors, seven assistant professors, several postdocs, approximately 40 PDEng and PhD candidates, and support staff. The ES group is world-renowned for its design automation and embedded systems research. Our research is organized in three sub-programs that cover the engineering, system and circuit perspectives: Model-driven engineering, smart electronic systems, and digital nano-electronics. ES has strong collaborations with industry, research institutes and other universities. Thirteen of its staff members have a second affiliation besides their TU/e-ES affiliation. The group is a multi-cultural team, with staff members of eight different nationalities and students from all over the world.
Eindhoven University of Technology is a top-ranking Dutch university that combines scientific curiosity with a hands-on attitude. Our spirit of collaboration translates into an open culture and a number 1 position in collaborating with advanced industries. Fundamental knowledge enables us to design solutions for the highly complex problems of today and tomorrow.
