Funded PhD Studentship: Cybersecurity

Posted on Thursday 19th June 2014

The Institute for Conflict, Cooperation and Security (ICCS) invites applications for a 3-year studentship to undertake a PhD within the area of Cybersecurity and global politics.

The Institute for Conflict, Cooperation and Security was recently awarded a major grant to develop a new research stream in social neuroscience and international security, building on its vibrant research culture in the fields of trust and cooperation.  As part of this project, the ICCS is seeking to appoint a series of new posts, including two new PhD studentships in the areas of Cybersecurity and Social Neuroscience and Security.  This exciting opportunity will contribute to advancing the work of the ICCS in establishing the University of Birmingham as one of Europe’s leading centres for interdisciplinary security expertise.

Applications are invited in the broad area of cybersecurity and global politics. Preference will be given to applicants with an expertise, or strong interest, in trust and cooperation in cyberspace, particularly as it relates to issues of national and international security. Candidates willing to work across the disciplines of Psychology, International Relations, and Computer Science are encouraged to apply.

The deadline for applications is Friday 01 August 2014.
