Objectives:

Australian Centre for Cyber Security (ACCS) is an internationally recognised interdisciplinary research and teaching Centre, specialising in a broad range of areas in Cyber Security. ACCS is seeking prospective PhD students that are interested to undertake in the newly available research project of Industrial Control Systems (ICS) and SCADA cyber security.

Australian Centre for Cyber Security (ACCS) is a world-class internationally recognised interdisciplinary research and teaching Centre, specialising in a broad range of areas in Cyber Security. ACCS is seeking prospective PhD students that are interested to undertake in the newly available research project surrounding the concept of improving usability of security APIs (Application Programming Interface).

Network security is a key research theme at ACCS, and prospective students have wide scope to select a topic within this field.  Some areas of current activitiy include exploitation techniques, exploit mitigation, and system hardening.

Objectives:

Students entering university have a wide variety of conceptual frameworks / knowledge structures and mental models of forces. Students can be extremely resistant to changing these conceptual frameworks.

Objectives:

Females are under-represented in the physical sciences and engineering, and there is often a gender gap on assessment tasks, including standard diagnostic tests. The aim of this project is to explore patterns of gender differences on different types of assessment, and investigate the causes of these differences. The effects of different types of instruction, use of resources and study approaches on gender gaps will also be investigated.  

Description of Work:

Objectives:

This project is part of a larger program to build a low-cost, large-scale, high-capacity underwater sensor network consisting of thousands of nodes. The aim of this project is to develop algorithms for sharing and processing sensor data from large numbers of low-quality sensors. Applications include measurement of environmental data such as ocean currents, and direction finding for underwater ransmitters.
