Applicants must hold/achieve a minimum of an upper-second class honours degree (or international equivalent) in a relevant discipline including (but not limited to): computer science, psychology, management, electrical and electronics engineering, civil engineering, criminology and social sciences.
The most critical requirement is a passion for cyber security and the desire to make our connected world secure and hence safe.
Candidates should be willing to work across disciplinary boundaries and inform their research from different disciplinary perspectives.
