Description:  Teaching Assistant for Computer Security required primarily to help test, maintain and mark two practical exercises: one on secure Java programming, the other on web application security.  See course web page for details of these and to understand background required (  Knowledge of both of these areas (especially the first) is a strong advantage, although someone who is keen to learn, partly in their own time, would be considered too.  The job could also be split, although preference will be given to applicants who can support both exercises.

There is also an opportunity also to assist in giving a small number of tutorials during the course.  Tutorials are on worked examples and *not* directly related to the practical exercises.  Preference will be given to applicants who could assist in tutorials as well as practical exercises.
