under the reserve that funds are granted; part-time employment may be possible

The new chair of “Machine Learning and Security” headed by Prof. Dr. Konrad Rieck explores the interface between security and artificial intelligence (AI). On the one hand, it develops intelligent systems for the detection of attacks, malware and vulnerabilities. On the other hand, it investigates the security and privacy of learning-based systems. The chair is part of the new AI competence center BIFOLD in Berlin.
The chair is looking for a research associate (postdoctoral researcher) to join the research projects MALFOY (ERC) and ALISON (DFG). Both projects investigate the connection between offensive security and machine learning. The project MALFOY studies how learning algorithms can be applied in offensive security tools, while the project ALISON explores new attacks against learning algorithms. The position should create a bridge between both research topics and establish an own research profile.

Working field:

  • Research on machine learning and offensive security
  • Development of attacks with/against learning algorithms
  • Development of new defense mechanisms
  • Management tasks within the projects MALFOY and ALISON
  • Independent and self-driven research


  • Successfully completed university degree (Master, Diploma or equivalent) and doctoral degree in Computer Science or in a related area.
  • Strong expertise in machine learning and/or computer security.
