The Center for Cyber Strategy and Policy (CCSP) at the University of Cincinnati is pleased to announce the opening of applications for Pre- and Post-Doctoral Research Fellowships in Cyber Strategy and Policy. The 10-13-month appointments can begin July 1, 2021 or August 1, 2021. There are two positions available.
The CCSP Research Fellows will join a national team of researchers focused on examining aspects of a Whole-Of-Nation-Plus approach to cybersecurity. CCSP is examining the range of challenges that must be managed in linking intergovernmental coordination, public-private sector alignment, and a citizenry engaged in support of better cybersecurity, while adding the “plus” of alignment with allied governments, industry, and citizens. The specific research interest of the applicants is open relative to any aspect related to advancing strategy, policy, regulatory, operational, or technical aspects that contribute to a WON+ approach.
Fellows are expected to devote some portion of their time to one of two collaborative research projects: One, on cyber industrial policy that rests on a partnership with the Center for Embedded secure Systems and Trust (CHEST) a NSF-IUCRC project directed at the University of Cincinnati involving seven universities with national industry partners. CCSP will be examining CHEST research in the context of cyber industrial policy development. The second track of CCSP collaborative research will involve focus on state-level cyber security capacity and intergovernmental coordination leveraging our strong partnership with the Ohio National Guard and the Ohio Civilian Cyber Reserve.
Fellows will be provided the intellectual community support to contribute to the CCSP's research activities as well as work on—in the case of pre-dissertation fellows—advancing their doctoral dissertation or post-doctoral fellows advancing their publication agenda. All fellows are expected to be in residence for the duration of their fellowship contingent on Covid health campus policy. CCSP offers nationally competitive stipend levels and the benefit of relatively lower living costs than found on the East and West coasts.
Engage in and contribute to the research projects of CCSP.
