post-doc position in the area of “Privacy-Respecting Forensics Investigation” - University Putra Malaysia (UPM)

Country/Region : Malaysia

Website :


The forensics investigation requirements are usually in direct conflict with the privacy right of those whose actions are being investigated. At the same time, once the private data is exposed it is impossible to ‘undo’ its exposure effects should the suspect is found innocent! Therefore, there is a growing interest in the development of forensic investigation frameworks that respect privacy of the involved entities whiles only need-to-know data are exposed to the forensic investigator. To the best of our knowledge, there is no model for privacy-respecting forensic investigation that can be used in all forensic investigation cases. In this project we are working on further developments in this area!
Applicants Requirements
Holding Ph.D or near to completion (you need to have your VIVA results- if applicable).
Strong record of publication.
Application Process
Since post-docs are considered as academic staffs, they need to follow employment application process in addition to specific post-doc employment requirements (the process may take few months, so if you are interested apply ASAP):
Finding an academic staff who is willing to support your application (I call him/her supporter) (easiest step)!
Preparing an initial research proposal! The research proposal should be related to your supporter area and supporter should have enough funds for at least one year in that area (getting difficult)!
Your initial proposal along with application documents (C.V, Publications List, Samples of Publications and Research Statement,…) need to be approved in department and faculty level meetings (your supporter should defend your application on your behalf and it may include some (usually online) interview with you as well, we are receiving lots of post-doc requests and faculty may accommodate the best ones only)! Meanwhile, you have to finalize your research proposal! (This is the most difficult step)
Your final research proposal and other application documents would be brought to the university senate meeting for approval (since you have the faculty approval it is not a big issue, but it could be time consuming since you don’t know which senate meeting will look at your application)!
Upon Senate approval your application would be given to H.R to offer you a contract (in cases that I saw, post-doc monthly salaries are something between 5,000RM to 7,000RM and you will get all benefits of normal academic employees). Your contract would be for one year and can be extended for another year as well (the process takes about 1 month).
If you accept the contract, H.R would pass the case to the immigration office to apply for working visa (if you are not Malaysian) and only God knows how long does it take (I have seen cases that got visa in 10 days and some cases in 3 months)!
Upon receiving the visa, you are considered as an official employee of the university! You will get your office,… soon after that and may focus on research now.
Practicing a Plagiarism-free environment: Unfortunately, plagiarism is becoming a serious issue in academic environment and therefore, I am seriously practicing the development of plagiarism-free environment! As such I actively test whatever you send me (proposal, statement, drafts, papers,…) and should I find any case I will further raise it for legal or academic dishonesty punitive actions!
