FACULTY OF COMPUTER SCIENCE
INDUSTRIAL RESEARCH CHAIR IN CYBERSECURITY

Applications are invited for two tenure-track Industrial Research Chairs in cybersecurity to be established in the Canadian Institute for Cybersecurity, Faculty of Computer Science, University of New Brunswick, in partnership with Industry. Each chair will be expected to build a strong research program, in collaboration with the industrial partners, supervise graduate and undergraduate students, and be able to teach courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels in Cybersecurity.

The Chairs will focus on cyber security and privacy research. Possible research areas and critical areas of examination for the Chairs include, but are not limited to, Network and Systems Security, Information Security, Computer Security, Threat Modelling and Risk Analysis, Privacy Preserving/Enhancing Technologies, Internet of Things (IOT) Privacy and Security, Cloud Privacy and Security, Blockchain and related technologies, Cybercrime, Human-centric Cybersecurity, and Cyberspace governance and policy.

Each Chair position will be filled by a researcher with a demonstrated record of teaching and research excellence in an area of cybersecurity relevant to the Chair research focus. Experience in research collaboration with industry is highly desirable. Candidates must have a proven track record of scientific skills, academic/scholarly productivity, and industry collaborations in cybersecurity; and an earned doctorate in Computing Science or in other disciplines such as Social Science, Science, or Applied Science. Depending on the qualifications of the selected candidate, the appointment will be tenure-track at the rank of either assistant or associate professor.

The successful candidate will be expected to provide leadership in the development of the application to the NSERC Industrial Research Chair program (see www.nserc.ca). The establishment of the Chair and appointment to the position are contingent on approval of the NSERC Chair. The Chair appointment is for an initial five-year period with possibility for renewal for a second five-year period.
