We are DACS, the Design and Analysis of Communication Systems group at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, and Computer Science (EEMCS) of the University of Twente. Our mission is to contribute to the development of the trusted and resilient Internet that is needed by our society. We do that by performing top research and by educating students. To get a detailed understanding of the operation and (mis)use of our core Internet and its connected mobile and wireless communication infrastructures, we design and execute methods to measure and analyse the traffic flowing over these networks, e.g., to detect anomalies and attacks. Further, we design architectures, protocols, and algorithms for existing and future network systems to certify that they provide the required functionality, performance, security, and resilience. We are a group of around 30 people, including (full/associate/assistant) professors, part-time professors, and Ph.D.-students. We would like to extend our team with an assistant professor in the broad field of networks and their security.
At DACS, we strongly believe that scientists can really excel when working as a team. Therefore, we intensively cooperate within the team, with the outside world, and across disciplines. We expect from the new professor to develop and explore a new subdiscipline within the team and to contribute to acquiring research funding. As we are experiencing significant growth in the number of Ph.D. candidates, you will be involved in their day-to-day supervision. With respect to education, DACS teaches to a wide range of students at various levels. At bachelor level, we teach basic networking courses to Technical Computer Science and Electrical Engineering students as well as introductory courses and minors to students from other programs at the University of Twente. At master level, we teach more advanced courses for the Cybersecurity and Internet Science & Technology specializations of the Computer Science master program, and for the Electrical Engineering and Embedded Systems master programmes. We expect the new professor to contribute to our education in networking and network security, and to take responsibility for their own (part of a) course.

About the organization
The faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) uses mathematics, electronics and computer technology to contribute to the development of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). With ICT present in almost every device and product we use nowadays, we embrace our role as contributors to a broad range of societal activities and as pioneers of tomorrow's digital society. As part of a people-first tech university that aims to shape society, individuals and connections, our faculty works together intensively with industrial partners and researchers in the Netherlands and abroad, and conducts extensive research for external commissioning parties and funders. Our research has a high profile both in the Netherlands and internationally. It has been accommodated in three multidisciplinary UT research institutes: Mesa+ Institute, TechMed Centre and Digital Society Institute.
