Full Job Description: Job Description - Assistant Programme Director IN-CYPHER
To Apply: https://talent.sage.hr/jobs/b205203f-55a8-43a2-99e8-69a5eaad07c8

Deadline 7 May 2024 - Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, with final submission 15 April 2024

Position is based full-time in Singapore at Imperial Global Singapore at the National Research Foundations Campus for Research Excellence and Technological Enterprise (CREATE) located on the campus of the National University of Singapore.

Imperial College London and Nanyang Technological University (NTU) are seeking an Assistant Programme Director for the Imperial/NTU CYber Protection for HEalthcaRe (IN-CYPHER) research programme on the cybersecurity of connected medical devices and systems. The research programme represents a collaboration between the United Kingdom and Singapore and will be based at the newly established Imperial Global Singapore (IGS) as National Research Foundations Campus for Research Excellence and Technological Enterprise (CREATE) located on the campus of the National University of Singapore. This senior role will be responsible for leading the coordination of the IN-CYPHER research team, working across the themes in collaboration with the Programme Co-Directors.

IN-CYPHER is comprised of four interacting themes, spanning the design of intelligent medical devices through to the use of their data in informing personalised healthcare. Allied to other programmes in Singapore and the UK, it represents a unique opportunity to be at the forefront of research and development into securing the vital information that flows between implantable, wearable and connected medical devices, including those currently in use, and those yet to be developed. The four themes of IN-CYPHER are: 

Theme 1 Protecting Implantable Devices

Implantable and wearable medical devices – including both sensors and active devices – operate under strong design constraints. Our research in this area seeks to embed secure design from first principles, and at the most fundamental levels (silicon or substrate) of device design; we also recognise the need to consider the challenge of post-quantum cryptographically secure techniques in the immediate future.

Theme 2 Securing Connected Wearables & Healthcare Systems

Increasingly, medical devices incorporate some form of connectivity, and many of these devices are necessarily designed to be in use for between one and two decades. There is a constant risk of exploit of zero-day vulnerabilities, and therefore a requirement to detect breaches in extremely intricate complex networks and data flow pipelines. We seek solutions to this challenge that embed security at hardware level.

Theme 3 Algorithms for Privacy, Security and Provenance

To control active medical devices – such as closed-loop drug-delivery systems – information moves from sensors and devices along different communications channels; data provenance and integrity are important. Moreover, the use of data-driven algorithms potentially exposes protected patient characteristics, presenting specific technical challenges not only within operational use, but also to product development cycles.

Theme 4 Clinical Innovation & Translation

One area of personalised medicine resides in the use of data for closed-loop drug delivery, including insulin delivery. With key researchers and teams from both Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine and Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, we seek to develop threat models that are suitable for emerging approaches to personalised medicine, and particularly where data-driven techniques might offer improvements to patient outcomes.

Given the span of the IN-CYPHER programme, we are looking to build up an interdisciplinary team of highly motivated engineers, scientists, and researchers to represent the founding team of the IN-CYPHER programme. The Assistant Programme Director will be tasked with leading the coordination of this team working across the themes in collaboration with the Programme Co-Directors.

The collaborating Departments include senior academics from the Department of Metabolism, Digestion and Reproduction and the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial – the largest Biomedical Engineering Department in the UK – and senior researchers from the School of Computer Science and Engineering (SCSE)School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine at Nanyang Technological University. Candidates will be employed by Imperial Global Singapore, a research division of Imperial College London, consistently ranked within the top 10 of the QS University Rankings. Candidates must be resident and based in Singapore, but there will be opportunities for research visits to Imperial’s London-based locations.

Informal enquiries are greatly welcome. You are encouraged to send an e-mail to Professor Anil Bharath a.bharath@imperial.ac.uk.

Questions about the recruitment process, should go to Alex Page, Head of Operations a.page@imperial.ac.uk.
