As a PhD candidate, you will work on the EU-funded Horizon 2020 project HEIR: A Secure Healthcare Environment for Informatics Resilience.

HEIR will provide threat identification and a cybersecurity knowledge base system for healthcare. Work packages include real-time threat hunting services, the facilitation of sensitive data sharing, and providing vulnerability assessments of hospitals and medical centers by assessing the security status of medical devices. HEIR will also create an intelligent knowledge base for the threats identified and set up a European network to establish cybersecurity healthcare practices.

Your role within HEIR will be to work on the detection and characterization of advanced cyberattacks. You do so by collaborating with researchers and industry partners across Europe. Due to a focus on the automated detection of cybersecurity threats, the position lies at the intersection of Cybersecurity and Machine Learning.

Throughout the project, you will publish and present your results in top-tier conferences and journals. The cumulative results of your research will be presented in a PhD thesis.


A master’s degree (completed, or to be completed shortly) in computer science or a closely related field. A master’s degree in IT or network security is considered a plus.

Excellent analytical skills and experience in programming languages (especially Python and C).

Solid interest in, and proven experience with, cybersecurity (through publications, projects, etc.).

Excellent command of English, both oral and in writing.

Team spirit and communication skills, as you will work in the context of a large-scale European research project.
