iTrust is looking for a qualified individual to fill the position of Research Fellow for the project 'Featherlight Blockchain for IoT'.

Blockchains provide several inherent features, including decentralisation, immutability, non-repudation, accountability, availability, and transparency. Some of these features are compelling to use in an IoT context, namely to ensure and decentralise trust in the IoT infrastructure.

The aim of the project is to design and build a Featherlight Blockchain infrastructure that will serve as a trust anchor for IoT devices. The project's focus is on Advanced Metering Infrastructures (AMIs). For this position, the candidate will be working with a team of researchers to develop secure data sharing protocols, and to design experiments on Raspberry Pis and smart meters that are connected to a blockchain infrastructure.

Candidates should have a PhD in any engineering discipline including but not limited to information science, computer science, or electrical engineering. Furthermore, the candidate should have a track record of publications in high-quality journals and/or conferences.

Technical  areas include:

- blockchains or distributed consensus
- IoT security
- cryptography

Responsibilities include:

1) Design attacks against data integrity in AMIs and develop defence strategies against these attacks.
2) Design and implement demonstrations of these attacks and defence strategies using the project's testbed.
3) Interact with the industry partner to implement novel blockchain protocols on a real-world smart meter.
4) Document and disseminate the R&D and its findings in publications and professional meetings. 

Applications close: 30 Nov 2020 Singapore Standard Time
