ORNL hiring in medical device security

We have received word that the Cyberspace Sciences and Information Intelligence Research Group (try saying that five times fast -- or just call it CSIIR) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory is hiring. From their projects page:

By 2030, there will be 171 million Americans with chronic conditions (18% jump from 2010). With a larger aging population (77% of Americans 65+ have two or more chronic conditions), companies are beginning to help patients remotely. However, as features are added to medical devices (e.g., remotely checking heart information), this creates possibilities for attack. MDS will help protect lives by protecting the medical devices on which these lives depend.
