The Northern Cloud Cybercrime Centre at Newcastle University seeks to understand the different types of criminal behavior that can be facilitated by the Cloud and then build systems that will allow the detection of such crimes and the collection of digital evidence to lead to the prosecution of Cloud-based criminals. The Centre is an inter-disciplinary research endeavor leveraging the strengths of Newcastle, Durham and Leeds Universities in areas of computer security, machine learning, psychology, criminology, law and ethics.

We are recruiting two posts to focus on the machine learning (including but not limited to deep learning) research agenda of the center. In this project, you will face the research challenges of integrating network/cloud-related time series of very diverse and heterogeneous nature, developing innovative strategies for estimating the 'state' of a cloud system, detecting anomalies and predicting cybercrime, yielding human-understandable knowledge in the process. 

You should have a PhD awarded or nearing completion in in machine learning and its applications with very strong machine learning delivery and project management skills.
