The soft-dev research team is growing again and we have a position open for a Research Associate / Fellow in Software Security — the full position is listed here with a closing date of Jan 25th.

The position is looking at the security of software systems in the context of CHERI, in particular what we can do to make web browsers more secure using CHERI.

There’s considerable flexibility in how we go about tackling this problem, so if you think this sounds potentially interesting, please consider applying. We’re an open-minded group: you might, for example, be a researcher who wants to work on your programming chops; or a programmer who wants to work on your researcher chops. Most importantly, you need to be enthusiastic about software, partly because the rest of us are, but mostly because, with that, you can learn nearly everything else you need on the job. You do need to be eligible to work in the UK, though we are flexible about where you work within the UK.

If you have questions about either job, please send me an email!
