The Institute of Security and Global Affairs of the Faculty of Governance and Global Affairs is looking for an
Assistant professor with expertise on Cyber Security Emergency Response and Cyber Crisis Management
Research in cybersecurity, whether from a technical, a legal or a governance angle, currently predominantly focuses on vulnerability and threat detection, in order to prevent incidents. However, there is a dawning realization that despite our best efforts not all incidents can be prevented. Therefore, more knowledge and expertise on cybersecurity crises and the aftermath of cybersecurity incidents is needed. Research at the intersection between crisis management and (the governance of) cybersecurity can remedy this gap. We are looking for a scholar who combines expertise on cyber security with a focus on crisis or emergency response.
The Institute seeks to expand its academic staff by appointing an assistant professor with a specialisation in Cyber Security Emergency Response and Cyber Crisis Management. The ideal candidate has expertise on cyber security and crisis management, demonstrated not just by a strong publication record, but also by the ability to teach these subjects to students and professionals. The candidate will be expected to teach across several programs in the institute, notably the master programme Crisis and Security Management and the bachelor programme Security Studies
