Detailed Job Description

The Global Cybersecurity Institute (GCI) at RIT invites applications for an Endowed full-time tenured professor or associate professor position. We encourage candidates with significant track records in external funding and highly recognized research outputs with a focus in, but not limited to: usable security, applied cryptography, games and cybersecurity, software security, network and system security, and the intersection of cybersecurity and artificial intelligence.

RIT is making a major investment in cybersecurity, spurred by a recent gift of $20 million by alumnus Austin McChord and a $5 million investment by New York State. We just opened a new 50,000-sq. ft. building wing dedicated to the new Global Cybersecurity Institute (GCI), helping to further establish RIT as a leader in this field. Currently, we have 27 faculty members from across RIT working to address the growing challenges in cybersecurity with an interdisciplinary approach. Please visit for more information about cybersecurity at RIT.

The successful candidate will be granted an endowed position with dedicated research funding and additional salary commensurate with the role they will play in leading major research initiatives in cybersecurity. The candidate may be hired into any department in RIT, and will be expected to collaborate across the university to advance research and education in cybersecurity and be a cornerstone in the growth of GCI.

Academic year start date is 8/11/2021. An earlier start date is negotiable.
