Call for PhD students and Postdoctoral Research Fellows in Secure Software Engineering
by Leon Moonen, March 14, 2019

Simula Research Laboratory is seeking outstanding candidates for full-time 3-year PhD positions and full-time 2.5-year Postdoctoral Research Fellow positions in Secure Software Engineering. The appointment is available immediately and review of candidates will be performed continuously until the position has been filled. Note that a second set of positions is available with a start date of April 2020.
