Cybersecurity and Privacy Faculty Hiring

The School of Cybersecurity and Privacy (SCP) at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) invites applications for several tenure track and tenured faculty positions at all ranks. We seek exceptional candidates in all areas of Security, Cryptography, Privacy, and Cyber Policy, as well as emerging or interdisciplinary areas that push the boundaries of cybersecurity and privacy.

The School of Cybersecurity and Privacy, one of four schools in the top-ten ranked College of Computing, was formed in September 2020. It builds on the strong foundation and continued success of the cybersecurity research and education efforts at Georgia Tech that were started more than twenty years ago, and already includes innovative, multi-disciplinary faculty and research scientists. The goal of the SCP is to be an international leader in research, education, technology transfer, and societal impacts. Successful applicants will also have opportunities, where appropriate, for joint or shared academic appointments with other schools at Georgia Tech and collaborative research that spans disciplinary boundaries at Georgia Tech.
