: The project (1 Ph D student) combines big data, high performance computing and cryptology in multidisciplinary fundamental and applied research.
The project aims to develop integrated secure, end-to-end trusted, scalable and future-proof solutions for the problem of policy-enforced distributed data sharing and processing across multiple logistic domains.
Important dates The University of Amsterdam’s Systems and Network Engineering Lab at the Informatics Institute, with assistance of the Leibniz Center for Law, have recently been awarded several new grants from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).
The Leibniz Center and SNE already cooperate in the long-running SARNET project (1 Ph D student and 1 Post-doc) on Internet Security.
We apply Artificial Intelligence techniques to problems in legal theory, legal knowledge management, and the field of law in general.
In this capacity, we participate in many (inter)national research initiatives and maintain strong ties to the international research community and government agencies.
Such interactions must lead to a reliable, trusted, and obfuscated distributed system that actively maximizes its cyber-security state. Their research yields the science 1) to specify the cyber security state of an information processing system, to visualize and characterize that as well as 2) the science to compute and implement interventions that sets the cyber security stated to a desired one.
The candidates should have completed a master in computer science, or will acquire that on short notice and originate from the EU or USA.A ‘Certificate of Conduct for Natural Persons (VOG NP)’ may be requested by the partners.On a master’s level, the candidates must have knowledge of information theory and mathematics and strong coding abilities.The Leibniz Center for Law has its roots in the former department of Computer Science & Law (est.1989) of the Faculty of Law of the University of Amsterdam.We have longstanding experience in the development of legal ontologies, automatic legal reasoning and legal knowledge-based systems, (standard) languages for representing legal knowledge and information, user-friendly disclosure of legal data, application of data science and machine learning techniques in the field of law, and the application of information technology in education and legal practice.As an academic partner, the Leibniz Center provides advice on change management in legal-knowledge-intensive processes and on improvement of legal knowledge productivity in organisations.The SARNET project explores what is needed to provide an autonomous means of Internet security at the supra-company level.The research employs software-defined networking technology, with Internet provider networks and company networks working together on detection and defence.Knowledge of networks, cyber security and distributed systems is considered as a pre.The candidates will stay short periods abroad, must have the ability to give demonstrations to scientific and business audiences.
