PhD Scholarship Position in Electrical Engineering with Specialization in Automatic Control

A new opening PhD position is available at Uppsala University, Sweden. Applicants should apply before January 31, 2019.

Background: Control systems are ubiquitous in modern societies, supporting critical infrastructures such as power systems, transportation networks, and water distribution networks. Cybersecurity has become an increasingly important aspect of control systems in recent years, driven by the pervasive use of information technologies, as well as by the steadily increasing number of newly discovered vulnerabilities and of reported cyber-attacks, which in turn may result in significant financial and societal costs.

Reports on cyber-attacks, such as Stuxnet, have shown their devastating consequences on digitally controlled systems supporting modern societies. It is therefore of the utmost importance for control systems to be able to early detect and mitigate malicious cyber-attacks, which aim at having a significant impact on the system while remaining undetected. Unfortunately, existing techniques in control engineering such as fault detection and robust control consider impact and detectability separately, and thus fail to accurately tackle malicious cyber-attacks. New more effective methods need therefore to be developed.

Requirements: We are seeking candidates with a Master's degree in Electrical Engineering, Engineering Physics, or equivalent, with basic skills in signals and systems and automatic control. Skills in cyber-security, fault detection or robust control is desirable, but not a must. The successful applicant is expected to have a strong collaborative spirit and good communication skills in oral and written English.
