CSIR Modelling and Digital Science is an operating unit with three competency areas focusing on Advanced Mathematical Modelling, Information Security, as well as Mobile Intelligent Autonomous Systems. The unit assists in the CSIR’s drive to strengthen Science, Engineering and Technology outputs and to develop human capital through a studentship programme for Master’s and Doctoral studies based on the research work done at the CSIR under the co-supervision of a CSIR expert.
The information security group is concerned with processes, methodologies and techniques used to protect information from unauthorized access. The major drive towards the establishment of this competency revolves around the need to develop a capability on information security systems. This is also driven by the need for research and development of technologies that can be deployed locally.
The Information Security Group focuses on four research areas, which are complementary to each other. The areas are Biometrics, Smartcard, Data mining and Network Security.
Applicants will be expected to conduct research towards a higher degree (Master’s) on Biometrics technology systems, with particular emphasis on:
o Electrical, Electronic, Mechanical or Computer Engineering
o Applied Mathematics
