Cybersecurity Assurance and Policy (CAP) Center Faculty Co-hort

Morgan State University expands upon our emergence in cybersecurity assurance and policy research along with government agency, industry, and DoD partnerships to announce the formation of the internet-of-things (IoT), artificial intelligence/machine learning, privacy and security policy cohort. This is a collaboration between the Schools of Business & Management, Computer, Mathematical & Natural Sciences, and Engineering to enhance our leadership in this area. A total of eight faculty members will comprise the cohort as part of this search. While faculty will reside in their respective home departments, they will support Morgan State University's leadership in cybersecurity assurance and policy research.

Recently Morgan State University received a State appropriation to form a new interdisciplinary research enterprise called the Cybersecurity Assurance and Policy (CAP) Center. To staff the CAP Center Cohort, we plan to hire five faculty in electrical and computer engineering. We seek to fill five 9.5 month tenure-track faculty positions at the assistant/associate professor level in the following areas:

  • Cybersecurity
  • Cryptography
  • IoT security and privacy policy
  • Secure embedded systems
  • Artificial intelligence/machine learning
  • Digital forensics
  • Software assurance
  • Reverse engineering
  • Databases
  • Network security
  • Data analytics
  • Wireless communications
  • security.

We are particularly interested in faculty who work at the convergence of two or more research areas such as IoT security and AI/ML for example. Exceptional candidates at the assistant and associate professor ranks will be considered. Successful applicants are expected to have a strong vision for their vibrant research program, a commitment to leadership in the area of cybersecurity assurance and policy, and a commitment to excellence and innovation in graduate and/or undergraduate education, as well as an affinity to working in a collaborative environment. Candidates who have the ability to obtain a security clearance are highly encouraged to apply. 

Qualifications: The successful candidates will have an earned doctorate (by August 2019) in computer science, electrical engineering, or electrical and computer engineering with experience in one or more of the following areas: cyber security, network security, data analytics, IoT privacy and security, artificial intelligence/machine learning and the convergence of any of the aforementioned areas. The candidate should have a demonstrated record of quality research and the potential for excellence in teaching. Prior work experiences that use related skills are desirable, though not necessary. Faculty who have the ability to obtain a security clearance are highly encouraged to apply.
