Job Details

The College of Emergency Preparedness, Homeland Security and Cybersecurity at the University at Albany is seeking applicants for one or more tenured and tenure-track faculty positions in the growing field of cyber intel, cyber policy and law, interrelationships between critical infrastructure and cyber applications, as well as data analytics to aid homeland security. The position is open with respect to subfield specialization, but we are particularly interested in applicants focusing on risk analysis, cyber warfare, cyber intelligence, cyber-crime, information assurance, vulnerability assessment, critical infrastructure, cyber physical systems, governance, privacy and civil liberties. The rank is open.


As the first college of its kind in the nation, the College of Emergency Preparedness, Homeland Security and Cybersecurity is projected to grow over the next five years as it establishes both undergraduate and graduate academic programs in emergency preparedness, homeland security, and cybersecurity. The University at Albany and the State of New York are committed to seeing the College become a global leader in education and research in these fields, and are providing significant support to the establishment and planned growth of the unit.


The mission of the College of Emergency Preparedness, Homeland Security and Cybersecurity is to support high-quality academic programs for undergraduate and graduate students, to produce new knowledge though innovative research, and to provide training and lifelong learning opportunities for working professionals - all to help prepare for, protect against, respond to, and recover from a growing array of natural and man-made risks and threats in the state, the nation, and around the world.


UAlbany is a nationally recognized leader in security and preparedness training, research and education, and has longstanding partnerships with key security and emergency response agencies across the State. The University has received tens of millions of dollars in federal, state and private sector support to its schools, colleges and research centers based on this expertise. Partnerships with government agencies, private industry and not-for-profit organizations provides an opportunity to contribute to highly applied research and access to a wealth of resources held in these organizations and agencies. All faculty members in the College will join a research lab, where they will have the opportunity to work with faculty members from various disciplines from across the University.


Given the interdisciplinary nature of the project, many faculty will have joint appointments with other schools and colleges at the University at Albany (e.g., cybersecurity in the College of Engineering and Applied Science, digital forensics in the School of Business, and cyber warfare in the Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy). The unique model of the College places its faculty in a highly collaborative core, while also fostering interaction with a large interdisciplinary network throughout the University. Across the University, a rich learning and research environment is marked by a highly accomplished faculty, who are essential to delivering high quality academic programs and producing influential and cutting edge research. The faculty is comprised of nationally and internationally visible researchers and scholars and highly dedicated teachers.
