WHEN YOU'RE INVESTED IN SOLVING CHALLENGES, IT HELPS TO BE WITH A COMPANY THAT INVESTS IN YOUR SUCCESS.
My parents have always instilled in me the concept of working hard, having fun, thinking long term and planning for the future. FM Global is exciting, innovative and dynamic, and with so many professional opportunities here, it's also a company where you can spend your whole career and never get bored. I remember back during one of my initial interviews with FM Global, a manager shared that over 80% of the office staff had been with the company since they graduated college. That kind of longevity is one of the reasons I decided to work at FM Global. I'm proud to work for a company that invests in its employees and trains them to be the best. The willingness to learn is universal, the exposure to knowledge is infinite and the different career paths are endless. The opportunities to think long term don't get much broader.

This position is for a limited term of up to three years, renewable each year. The role is typically focused on performing publishable work as part of a strategic research program under the guidance of a program manager or other senior research staff member(s).
The Equipment, Cyber and Materials Science team is looking for a PostDoc candidate to support our research into IoT network design and security.
As industry expands, so does the demand on technology and its associated architectural frameworks. Isolated infrastructures, such as OT (Operational Technology) Networks, which once relied on ICS (Industrial Control Systems) for data aggregation and reporting now demand faster processing and computing in geographically dispersed locations. To address this demand, devices often referred as the IoT (Internet of Things), are being deployed into existing infrastructures. However, with these implementations, additional requirements regarding protocols, connectivity, network structure, data retention, and analytics can pose security challenges to an established network architecture.
As part of the research you will participate in setting up IoT networks in a lab environment, specifically focused on IoT devices embedded into OT networks. These networks will be subjected to different forms of attacks to understand their resilience under these conditions. Design choices, network monitoring approaches (e.g. self-adaptive intrusion detection) and other defensive measures/security products (e.g. identity and access management approaches, segmentation etc.) will be researched in order to create practical guidance for FM Global’s client companies.
