Over the last decade, our lifestyles in social, political, financial and healthcare arenas have gone through extensive digitization. However, such massive digitization opens up a new domain of risk, as inappropriate access control of these information can lead to data breaches and violation of privacy. To address the critical national need of securing digitized information, Cal Poly Pomona is conducting a cluster hire for three positions at the Assistant Professor ranks; one in each of the departments of Computer Science (CS), Computer Information Systems (CIS) and Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) starting in the fall of 2017.
Successful candidates are required to have a PhD in related areas by September 1, 2017 with a specialization in software and mobile application security (CS), cloud and network security (CIS) or hardware and embedded systems security (ECE). Successful candidates are expected to work as a part of the campus wide cybersecurity cluster members in the department of CS/CIS/ECE to mentor and ensure student success across disciplines, develop interdisciplinary courses in cybersecurity and participate in the accreditation activities of the cybersecurity curriculum, and submit internal and external grants in collaboration with cluster members to promote cybersecurity research, education and outreach activities.
