MC2 Kicks Off Third Year of Postdoctoral Fellowship Program
The Maryland Cybersecurity Center (MC2) is heading into a new round of applications for its coveted postdoctoral fellowship program, designed to attract highly motivated candidates to the University of Maryland to conduct cutting-edge research and scholarship focused on cybersecurity.
The two-year fellowships offer an opportunity to work closely with MC2 faculty and graduate students in multiple areas, including theoretical and applied cryptography, data-driven security, human-computer interaction and security, network and wireless security, machine learning and security, blockchain and cryptocurrency security, and programming languages security.
“This is a great place to be a postdoc,” says Michelle Mazurek, an associate professor of computer science and director of MC2. “We have an upbeat, supportive community spanning a wide range of topics. The postdoc fellowship is unique in that it's not tied to any particular project—the fellow is free to follow their interests and collaborate with faculty and students throughout the center.”
The position offers a competitive stipend and benefits. Candidates accepted to the fellowship will have the opportunity to work with one or more of the center’s core faculty that include:
• Michel Cukier, whose research covers dependability and security issues.
