RECRUITMENT AT EPFL: Open Faculty Position in Cyber-Physical Risk Management
Cyber-physical risk management is one of the identified areas of interest for a broad faculty search being conducted by the School of Computer and Communication Sciences (IC) at EPFL. The search in this sub-area is targeted at the level of tenure-track assistant professor. The professorship will be affiliated with the EPFL Center for Risk Analysis and Governance (CRAG) which has resources available for Visiting Professorships and provides a link to the International Risk Governance Council (IRGC) and its academic network.
The field of cyber-physical risks, security, privacy, surveillance and, in general, risk management for the digital world poses critical challenges that have both technical and governance aspects. The capacity to deal with these multi-dimensional aspects will be strengthened by the association of the professorship with CRAG, which can support activities in research and education, and IRGC, which provides a convening platform for international and multi-stakeholder dialogue.
