National Cyber Security Centre in collaboration with the

Research Institute for Sociotechnical Cyber Security

Invites applications for

‘RISCS Fellow’

on the research theme of

‘Quantification and Cyber Risk’

Closing date: Friday 16th April 2021

The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), working in collaboration with the Research Institute for Sociotechnical Cyber Security (RISCS), is inviting proposals for a researcher to become a RISCS Fellow on the theme of ‘Quantification and Cyber Risk’. The Fellow will play a leadership role in developing the strategic direction and community on the topic of the theme. To achieve that, the Fellow will shape RISCS research activities for the theme over the course of the next year. The RISCS Fellow will be provided with a £15,000 budget as well as all the support of the RISCS team to implement a package of work that develops the research theme. We see this as an exciting opportunity for early career academics to take on a research leadership role or for established researchers to extend or supplement their existing research agenda into a national stage, in such a way that benefits both them and the wider RISCS community.
