Applications are invited for a position of Postdoctoral Research Fellow 
at the Software Engineering Research Group, Institute of Computer 
Science, University of Tartu (http://sep.cs.ut.ee).

The position is tied to a DARPA-funded project aimed at developing 
methods to analyze business process models (in BPMN) with respect to 
privacy properties. The successful candidate will lead an effort to 
develop a method that takes as input process models with privacy 
metadata and analyzes these models to detect and quantify unintentional 
disclosures of private information. The project will involve extending 
the BPMN meta-model to capture privacy properties and extending a BPMN 
toolset with privacy analysis capabilities. The project brings together 
researchers from the fields of information security, cryptography and 
business process modeling, and will be conducted in cooperation with 
Cybernetica - a leading information security company in the Baltics.

Candidates must have a PhD in Computer Science or a related discipline. 
Expertise in at least one of the following topics is essential: business 
process modeling, software analysis or model-driven privacy and/or 
security analysis. Experience in developing research prototypes and 
working in collaborative research projects is desirable.

The position will be initially for four years. Remuneration will be in 
the range 2000-2500 euros/month. Estonia applies a flat income tax of 
20% on salaries and provides public health insurance for employees.
