The level of appointment will depend on the qualifications and experience of the successful candidate.
Senior Assistant Registrary in the General Board Division, to take up appointment as soon as possible, to undertake the duties of Secretary of the Board of Graduate Studies. As well as serving as Secretary of the Board, he or she will manage the twenty-one staff who provide administrative support for the University's programme of graduate education. He or she will also be expected to take a pro-active role in supporting the Head of the Education Section with policy formulation, particularly concerning quality assurance of the postgraduate educational programme. Candidates should be graduates with substantial administrative experience, including the management of teams.
In each case, the appointment will be for three years, unless that requirement is waived by the Council, with the possibility of reappointment to the retiring age. The pensionable stipends are:
|Senior Assistant Registrary||£35,670 a year.|
|Assistant Registrary||£20,811 a year, rising by eleven annual increments to £32,095.|
Further information about the duties and conditions of these appointments may be obtained from the Secretary General of the Faculties, University Offices, The Old Schools, Cambridge, CB2 1TT (tel. 01223 332263), to whom applications (three copies) marked 'Confidential', including a curriculum vitae, and the names of two referees, who may be consulted prior to interview, should be sent so as to reach him by 8 December 1999.
The Research Associate will take the lead on a range of housing research projects using HPR Dataspring, a local housing markets database developed in the Unit. The work involves statistical and other analysis, leading to both major policy research reports and academic papers. Candidates should have a good degree or equivalent in a relevant subject, and some research experience. The salary will be in the range £18,185 to £24,479 a year.
The Data Analyst is required to process large datasets for entry to HPR Dataspring, to undertake analysis using statistical packages, and to produce material, including reports, for housing professionals. Familiarity with spreadsheets and working with large datasets, and some knowledge of housing issues would be an advantage. The salary will be in the range £13,531 to £18,185 a year.
The starting date for both posts is 10 January 2000, or as soon as possible thereafter. The funding is guaranteed for a period of one year, but may be extended. The deadline for applications is 26 November 1999.
For further details, please contact Mrs D. Willett, Property Research Unit, Department of Land Economy, 19 Silver Street, Cambridge, CB3 9EP (tel. 01223 337118, e-mail email@example.com).
Three Research Associates are required to join a team for two years on an EU-funded project (Third Generation Smartcard Project), to develop next-generation smartcard processors. This is part of two continuing investigations into the security of tamper-resistant devices and self-timed logic. The project will investigate potential tampering techniques on security microcontrollers and will design more resilient prototype processors using self-timed logic and special countermeasures. The work will be conducted in collaboration with the University of Manchester, the Université Catholique de Louvain, and several industrial partners.
The first post is for an electrical engineer or computer scientist with strong digital electronics skills. Experience of self-timed circuits, low-power design, and use of commercial VLSI CAD tools would be of particular benefit. An interest in security will be an obvious advantage.
The second post is for a hardware engineer who will design attacks and evaluate their effectiveness on tamper-resistant processors. Candidates will require a good background in semiconductor testing and tamper resistance technology, and should be able to design and set up experiments involving microprobing, electron-beam testing, focused ion-beam editing, layout reconstruction, and transient fault provocation. Past experience in security engineering would be particularly beneficial.
The third post is for a software engineer with experience in developing embedded systems software, ideally for ISO 7816-4 smartcards. Candidates require not only assembler and C programming skills, but will also have to be aware of design requirements towards Common Criteria EAL5 security evaluation.
Candidates for all three posts should have a relevant Ph.D. in Computer Science or Electrical Engineering, or appropriate commercial experience combined with a good first degree. Some training can be provided for candidates who possess most but not all of the skills required for a particular post.
The salary will be in the range £16,286 to £24,479 a year, depending on age and qualifications. We are hoping to be able to appoint from 1 January 2000, subject to final confirmation of funding.
Applications, including a curriculum vitae and the names and addresses of two referees, should be sent to Caroline Bean, Computer Laboratory, New Museums Site, Pembroke Street, Cambridge, CB2 3QG (tel. (+44) (0)1223 334607, fax (+44) (0)1223 334678, e-mail Caroline.Bean@cl.cam.ac.uk). Further information may be found on the Department's website (http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/DeptInfo/Jobs/). The closing date for applications is 15 December 1999.
