Project summary Personal Voice Assistants (PVAs) such as Amazon Echo, Siri or Google Home are now commonplace and are increasingly used for interaction with phones, tablets, PCs and smart environments such as automated homes or cars. PVAs collect sensitive information such as conversations and sound cues and are used to access important computer systems requiring access control. The project PVASec: Personal Voice Assistant Security and Privacy aims to advance our understanding of security and privacy issues in the PVA context. The project will make contributions in four closely related work areas: (i) PVA Privacy: methods for recording consent management, methods for recording tracking, new insights into information disclosure; (ii) PVA Security: methods for speaker authentication, methods to detect voice command injection; (iii) PVA Denial of Service (DoS): analysis of acoustic DoS and design of detection methods and countermeasures; (iv) PVA Acoustic Sensing: acoustic sensing approaches, detection and countermeasures for acoustic sensing. In this regard, we are now seeking to fill two PhD Studentship positions, one aligned with research area (iii) PVA Denial of Service and the other with area (iv) PVA Acoustic Sensing. The appointed persons will be expected to make contributions to the progress of the project, working closely with the Principal Investigator Professor Utz Roedig, Post-Doctoral Researchers and with academic and industry collaborators. We seek applications from candidates with expertise and interest in areas such as cybersecurity, Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR), signal processing or acoustic localisation. Ideal candidates will also have experience of experimental methods, laboratory testbeds and systems programming. The PhD students will work together with two Post-Doctoral researchers, forming a new research group with focus on PVA security and privacy. The School of Computer Science & IT (CSIT) at UCC is part of three major Irish SFI-funded research centres, CONNECT - Centre for Future Networks & Communications, Insight - Centre for Data Analytics, Lero - Irish Software Research Centre and it is also hosting two large doctoral training centres (ADVANCE and INSIGHT). CSIT has an active cybersecurity research group working across these centres and the new research positions will be part of this growing research community at UCC. Applicants should hold a good honours undergraduate or Masters degree in computer science, computer engineering, telecommunications, or other relevant research areas. Ideally, applicants will be able to demonstrate an interest in both theoretical analysis and practical system design, with a keen interest in cybersecurity, signal processing, machine learning, automatic speech recognition, acoustics, localization and related areas.

LK-03: PhD Studentship - Synthesis and optimisation of multiferroic thin film materials for next generation data storage. Contract Type: Full-time/Fixed Term Tyndall National Institute at University College Cork invites applications for a 4 year PhD position to begin on October 1st 2020. The project will involve the synthesis and characterisation of thin film materials with electric and magnetic properties (multiferroic materials) for potential data/memory storage applications. This stimulating PhD studentship is part of Dr. Keeney and Dr. Nolan’s SFI Frontiers for the Future project. As miniaturisation of electronic devices continues, existing memory technologies are approaching their physical storage limitations. Multiferroic materials, possessing simultaneous ferroelectric and ferromagnetic memory states, have been road-mapped as leading contenders for enabling beyond CMOS data storage, whereby coupling between the ferroelectric and ferromagnetic states permits energy-efficient switching of memory states and enhanced logic densities. The unique advantage of these advanced materials is that a technology that exploits simultaneous ferroelectric and ferromagnetic memory states allows for multi-state storage devices. No such devices presently exist however as single-phase room temperature multiferroics are exceedingly rare and their material properties are currently limited. Therefore the design and development of a room temperature multiferroic material was a significant output of our recent research. The overarching aim of this project is to advance the state of the art in this material system to demonstrate that it can be exploited for future data storage applications. Earlier work focused on non-epitaxial 100nm films. The grand challenge now facing the MFs community is demonstrating whether these unique multiferroic properties persist at the thicknesses required for nano-electronics, sub-10nm epitaxially grown. We now know that a key driver for ferromagnetic behaviour is ordering of the magnetic cations within the structure, and the focus of this project is on optimising magnetic cation ordering in thin films synthesized on epitaxial substrates to ensure well defined MF films with the correct orientation and strain levels. Key Duties and Responsibilities The project aims to synthesis high quality, ultra-thin (sub-10nm) multiferroic materials and to investigate the key parameters responsible for optimum and reproducible multiferroic response. The PhD student will focus on fabrication of layered-structured Aurivillius phase thin films on suitable substrates by industrially realisable direct liquid injection chemical vapour deposition (DLI-CVD) techniques. This will enable subsequent investigations of the micro-structural characteristics, ferroelectric, ferromagnetic properties and magnetoelectric coupling mechanisms by the student as a function of composition, fabrication technique and substrate type/orientation. X-ray diffraction analysis of their structural properties will be key to the investigations along with piezoresponse force microscopy investigations of their electric, magnetic and magnteoelectric properties. Collaboration with internal and external researchers will be an important part of the project as well as disseminating results in peer-reviewed publications and at national and international conferences. Essential Criteria Informal enquiries concerning this studentship can be made to: Dr. Lynette Keeney (email email@example.com). An annual student stipend of €18,500 applies for this successful candidate for this position. Yearly University Academic Fees will paid by the Tyndall National Institute.
