Cyber Defense (CYD) Fellowships

CYD Fellowships – A Talent Program for Cyber-Defence Research

Jointly launched by EPFL, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, and the Swiss Cyber-Defence (CYD) Campus, this program offers funding for 6-month Master theses, 4-year PhDs, and (up to) 3-year postdocs to talented researchers of all nationalities who are willing to engage with cross-cutting issues in cyber-defence under the supervision of a professor at a Swiss higher education institution and a CYD Campus researcher.

It places particular emphasis on:

• privacy-enhancing technologies
• data science and artificial intelligence methods for analysing cyber- and technology-relevant data
• research on vulnerabilities and backdoors in digital systems.

CYD fellows will be hosted by a higher education institution in Switzerland and conduct their research at the CYD Campus – a cyber-competence center acting as an anticipation platform. The CYD Fellowships are supported by armasuisse Science and Technology.

The call is open and accepting applications until March 30, 2020.  For more detail please check their website.
