The Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) seeks to hire qualified individuals to fill several Post-Doctorals and Research Assistants positions in the following areas:

Post-doc Researcher and Research Assistant (Autonomous Vehicle Security)

This project is aimed at developing novel approaches for assuring safety and security in autonomous vehicles (AVs). The goal of this research is to develop a novel, integrated modelling approach for AVs in compliance with international standards.

The project includes several main tasks:

  • Comprehensive AV safety and security standard analysis in order to define common AV safety and security process. There are several safety and security standards, applicable to AVs, developed by International Standard Organization (ISO), Society of Automotive Engineers International (SAE), Information-technology Promotion Agency (IPA), and other organisations.
  • Analysis of currently available AV safety and security countermeasures.
  • Development of a novel AV safety and security modelling approach, which will include a set of graphical models for describing AV functions, components, failures, attacks, etc., and their inter-connections.
  • Development of a toolkit for supporting AV safety and security modelling approach. The toolkit will include graphical tools for building and inter-connecting various models. The possibility to adapt available tools, such as Rational DOORS and TTool will be explored.

Available positions:

We are looking for either Post-Doctoral Researchers or Research Assistants (2 positions) in the following research areas:

  1. Autonomous vehicle safety and security standards and countermeasures
  2. Autonomous vehicle safety and security modelling

The first area includes project tasks T1 and T2, while the second – tasks T3 and T4.

Requirements for Post-Doctoral Researcher:

  • PhD in Engineering;
  • Experience in autonomous vehicle research;
  • Experience in safety and security research;
  • Experience in analysis/use of international standards;
