Global Cybersecurity Capacity Centre Research Fellow

Posted: 23rd November 2018

Department of Computer Science, Wolfson Building, Parks Road, Oxford.
Global Cybersecurity Capacity Centre Research Fellow 
Fixed term until 31 March 2020
Grade 8: Salary £40,792 – £48,677 p.a.

The Global Cybersecurity Capacity Centre (GCSCC) at the Department of Computer Science is looking to employ a Research Fellow to work within an interdisciplinary research team on cybersecurity capacity-building. Partly funded by the UK government and by the State Government of Victoria in Australia, the GCSCC is a programme of the Oxford Martin School, which specialises in supporting interdisciplinary research communities working to address the most pressing global challenges and opportunities of the 21st century. The Research Fellow will work under the directorship of the Director of the GCSCC, Professor Sadie Creese, and the supervision of Professor Michael Goldsmith, with the guidance of other senior academics and cybersecurity professionals who form the leadership (the Technical Board) of the GCSCC.

The key focus of the role will be to support the research programme of the GCSCC.  Approximately 40% of the work will be devoted to using statistical and other methods to investigate data resulting from reviews, another 40% will be work for the development of a field-coding tool to support research, and 20% will be to support the teaching of others on how to use the products of the Centre’s research.  We expect the Research Fellow to get involved in other research outputs as the project evolves and grows.

You will possess a postgraduate qualification in a relevant field (social or physical sciences, computer science, economics, political science, philosophy, cognitive/social psychology, law, geography, anthropology, international relations, development or sociology), have experience of working a postdoctoral level in a research role (or industry equivalent) and the ability to conduct quantitative, multivariate analyses, as well as qualitative research.  Experience of cybersecurity capacity-building activities, or of multi-disciplinary working are highly desirable.

The closing date for applications is 12 noon on 3 January 2019.
