As our world is becoming increasingly digitalized, the Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly. As a PhD candidate, you will look into possibilities to improve the security of software in IoT devices. This way, we can work towards safer digital ways to enhance our life and work.

Depending on your interests, you can also look into the wider questions of security evaluation and certification of the software in general and IoT devices in particular, using, for instance, testing (fuzzing) or static analysis. You will be expected to present your research at international computer security conferences and workshops and try out your ideas in case studies.


  • An MSc degree in computer science.
  • A strong interest in and affinity with security and software.
  • Solid programming skills.
  • A good command of spoken and written English.
  • Good critical thinking and communication skills.


  • Employment: 0,8 (5 year contract) - 1,0 FTE (4 year contract).
  • The gross starting salary amounts to €2,434 per month based on a 38-hour working week, and will increase to €3,111 from the fourth year onwards (salary scale P).
  • In addition to the salary: an 8% holiday allowance and an 8.3% end-of-year bonus.
  • Duration of the contract: you will be appointed for an initial period of 18 months, after which your performance will be evaluated. If the evaluation is positive, the contract will be extended by 2.5 years (4 year contract) or 3.5 years (5 year contract).

  • Your teaching load may be up to 10% of your appointment.
  • You will be able to use our Dual Career and Family Care Services. Our Dual Career and Family Care Officer can assist you with family-related support, help your partner or spouse prepare for the local labour market, provide customized support in their search for employment and help your family settle in Nijmegen.
