The Universität der Bundeswehr München (Bundeswehr University Munich) is significantly expanding its Cyber Defence Research Center
(CODE). CODE was established in 2013 with the objective to bring together experts from different faculties and scientific disciplines as well
as expertise from industry and government agencies to conduct research in the cyber and information space. CODE pursues a comprehensive,
integrated, and interdisciplinary approach to implement technical innovations and concepts for the protection of data, software,
and ICT infrastructures in accordance with legal and commercial framework conditions. It has already established important strategic
partnerships in this area. The objective of the expansion is to unite the research initiatives of the Bundeswehr and the Federal Government
in the area of Cyber Defence and Smart Data and to establish the CODE Research Center as the primary point of contact in the cyber and
information domain of the Bundeswehr and the Federal Government.
Research and teaching in the area of cyber security is already being carried out as part of the Bachelor‘s and Master‘s programs in the
Computer Science Department. According to current planning, a new international Master‘s program in Cyber Security will be launched on
January 1st, 2018.
The Universität der Bundeswehr München will therefore be appointing eleven Professors for its Computer Science Department on
October 1st, 2017.
The Universität der Bundeswehr München is looking for personalities with outstanding scientific qualifications to fill these professorial
positions, who will also contribute actively to the CODE research center. Besides excellent research work, the new professors are expected
to develop demanding lectures, practicals, and seminars for the new Master‘s program in Cyber Security and to provide excellent teaching
in their respective specialist area. Applicants are also expected to carry out teaching in the Bachelor‘s programs in Computer Science and
Business Informatics, and to work closely with the other departments at the Universität der Bundeswehr München.
The Professorships will be provided with eight excellently equipped laboratories housed in a new building that is to be completed in the
The candidates must have an excellent scientific track record, as demonstrated by a habilitation or equivalent scientific achievements, as well
as significant excellent publications in academic journals. Proven teaching experience in their respective specialist area is highly desired. The
new Professors should have an international perspective, e.g., based on participation in international research projects, and experience in
acquiring third-party funding. The duties will also include active participation in the university‘s academic self-administration.
The Computer Science Department at the Universität der Bundeswehr München is seeking Professors for the following specialist areas of its
Cyber Defence und Smart Data Research Center:
When it comes to transmitting, storing, and processing data, cryptographic methods are crucial to ensure that the data remains confidential,
authenticated, and uncorrupted.
The remit of the Professorship includes encryption algorithms, random number generators and key management as well as their
practical application within communication protocols – both from a provider’s and an attacker‘s perspective.
The complexity and heterogeneity of communication networks and ICT infrastructures requires a systematic assessment of potential
attack vectors in order to derive priorities for protection mechanisms.
Besides malware as a mass phenomenon in the form of viruses, Trojan horses and encryption-based ransomware, the Professorship also
focuses on constructing sandbox analysis environments to identify malicious code in third-party software, such as smartphone apps and
other software downloaded from the web.
Networked applications, IT services, and operating environments generate vast amounts of data that can be used for various purposes,
including the detection of potential attacks, but the sheer amount of such data prevents any manual processing.
The research tasks involved in the Professorship in Business Intelligence Security include big data and smart data algorithms for the
aggregation, the correlation, and the analysis of large data amounts associated with security events for the purpose of providing specific
support for decision processes concerning the prevention, the detection, and the response to attacks.
The combination of networked applications with mechanical and electronic components, such as in industrial production facilities,
assistance systems, and energy supply systems, has many advantages – but it also involves the risk that these cyber physical systems can be
compromised or sabotaged through cyber attacks.
The Professorship focuses on the information security characteristics of cyber physical systems with their specific framework conditions, such
as the constrained resources of embedded systems, real-time capabilities, and physical access by attackers.
