Becas CYD - Un Programa de Talento para la Investigación de la Ciberdefensa


“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.

We would like to inform you of the third call for proposals, with a rolling call for Master Thesis Fellowship applications, and with a deadline of 15 February 2021 (17:00 CET) for Doctoral and Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowship applications. We would be very grateful if you could disseminate the information regarding this call for applications on your website and, if possible, amongst your contacts.

The program offers funding for 6-month Master theses, 4-year PhDs, and (up to) 2-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:

· novel technologies for protecting the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of cyber and cyber-physical systems

· 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 are 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.
