IU undergrads: Apply to be a cybersecurity research assistant

Aid in developing a software engineering security guide for NSF-funded science and research projects

The NSF Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (trustedci.org) is seeking an IU Bloomington undergraduate research assistant to aid in the development of a software engineering security guide for NSF-funded science and research projects.

The student research assistant will work under the supervision of Chief Security Analyst Susan Sons to sift through data on unusually high-impact vulnerabilities across many types of software, as well as on which vulnerabilities most commonly have impact.

They will also aid in drawing and explaining conclusions about which types of software weaknesses or development problems developer education should focus on -- and, notably, in the first security evaluations on software in an unknown security state.

Applications are due by 5pm Eastern on March 15, 2018. Learn more here.
