Assistant, Associate and Full Professor (Multiple Positions)
Budget Title: same as above
Department: Computer Science, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Psychology, Applied Mathematics & Statistics, College of Business, Health Technologies
Salary: Commensurate with Experience
Campus: Stony Brook West Campus/HSC
Required Qualifications: PhD in corresponding field and significant world-class research related to cyber-security, privacy and regulatory compliance (note that there are positions in multiple departments).
Preferred Qualifications: Expertise in Computing Hardware Security, Cloud Computing and Distributed Systems Security, Health Technology Security, Security and Privacy in Online Social Networks, Big Data Security and Privacy, and Regulatory Compliance and Policy.
Responsibilities & Requirements: Today’s societies are intrinsically dependent on cyber technologies, across the entire socio-economical spectrum of the modern human experience which has become highly digital. Cyber technologies have “shrunk” the world. Knowledge and information are increasingly difficult to censor and contain, and travel freely at the speed of light. “Arab Springs” are enabled by the Twitters and Facebooks of today. Individuals, amplified by the power of cyber technologies, can make an essential difference for good. Yet, the amplification effect of technology can be extremely destructive when applied for illicit and nefarious purposes. Daily reports of cyber-attacks of increasing magnitude and impact are bombarding us. Ultimately, we find ourselves at the dawn of a new era. Modern political and economic warfare has started. It is waged in cyber space, often with dramatic consequences.
President Obama has declared cyber threats as “one of the most serious economic and national security challenges we face as a nation”. “America's economic prosperity in the 21st century will depend on cybersecurity.” In response to this new reality, New York State and Stony Brook as its flagship university will participate in this nationwide cybersecurity effort by establishing the National Security Institute (NSI).
The NSI vision and its core mission are bold: to secure our homeland by researching and developing technologies and insights for secure, trustworthy, and available communications and computing platforms. NSI's goal is to become a world leader in research, the education of professionals, security technology, business and policy, and raising awareness. NSI will span multiple disciplines and establish public/private partnerships to develop new holistic socio-technological solutions for securing our highly-digital societies. This will engage not only in research but also in the education of professionals in defense, national and cybersecurity, assurance, healthcare, and policy. A comprehensive assurance education program will be established, to train not only Stony Brook students but also the broader corporate and academic community. NSI will leverage the team’s strengths to spawn a steady stream of successful security-centric technology startups.
Academic appointments for cluster faculty will be based on their areas of research and will be hosted as appropriate, in the Departments of Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Psychology, Applied Math, the College of Business and the School of Health Technology and Management. A number of these positions will be joint appointments.
